    1. I went into this graphic novel totally blind, I have seen the movie when I was a kid And it was one of my all time favorite movies ever when I was a kid And when I saw there was a graphic novel of the film I had to check it out, but this book was just ok for me I did like it enough to continue on reading the rest of the series though I just don t have high hopes for this series Now if you haven t see the film of Big Trouble in Little China you might get a little confused reading this graphic nov [...]


    2. A great continuation of the story from the movie.Co written by Eric Powell Goon and Carpenter himself, this very much as the feel of the movie.The dialog is snappy Jack Burton is an idiot Egg Shen is wise but snarky.I m really enjoying this and as long as the series keeps up this level of enjoyment, I ll be reading it.


    3. I thought this was hilarious The comic has managed to capture the vibe of the movie almost perfectly, which is really rare There s plenty of action, but the humor was laugh out loud If you enjoyed the movie, I m pretty sure you ll like the comic The storyline picks up right where the movie left off and goes on from there This volume does end on a cliffhanger, but I was going to keep reading anyway Good story and good art A great continuation of the movie.


    4. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA was one of those lightning in a bottle movies like THE FIFTH ELEMENT and ARMY OF DARKNESS that would have been a complete disaster with virtually any other writer or director attachedG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA the comic book, which picks up right where the film left off, essentially proves this point In the hands of writer Eric Powell, all the brilliance of the previous story line completely evaporates, and all we are left with is a big stupid mess This comic is not fu [...]



    5. I really wanted to like this one than I did Big Trouble in Little China is one of my favorite films, and Eric Powell seemed a decent fit for the material Unfortunately, in spite of all the words of praise slapped all over this volume, I found it to be a big disappointment Jack Burton s ex wife stories were all pure Powell, and the art by Brian Churilla was suitably over the top and cartoony, but that s about all that worked The dialogue and characters all fell flat on the page, and worst of all [...]


    6. meh I watched the movie which is one of my faves and then sat down to read this book by Eric Powell and John Carpenter to see what happened to my old pal Jack Burton after the events of the film I m sorry Mr Carpenter but the fun and comedy of the characters from the film just did not make the transition to this comic and its cheesy artwork.



    7. This is a silly little story that does a good job of capturing the characters of Jack Burton and Egg Shen from the movie in a new adventure Burton comes off a bit like Ash from the Evil Dead series, but that s meant as a compliment the series is fully aware that Burton is the fool as much as the hero as he stumbles through the adventure, even turning it to the advantage of the series There s lots of action, lots of humor, and just a lot of silliness there are stylings from Powell s The Goon but [...]


    8. I don t think I would have made it through this one if I didn t feel a loyalty to the movie It was a bit of a slog and threw in a bunch of wackiness that was hard to follow it just wound up being too much for me And the art was okay, but not distinctive enough to win me over on its own I might try out the other stories just to give it a fair shot, but I m not rushing out to buy them.


    9. Eric Powell provides just the right amount of snark to make this a totally enjoyable read I can t wait to continue the series


    10. Just plain fun Made me want to watch the movie again for the 100th time Having read Powell s Goon I realize why he was absolutely perfect to take on Jack Burton.


    11. Awesome follow on from the movie Does a great job connecting the story in and building on what came before Wish Egg had a bit character but all in all a good piece of work.




    12. I was recommended this by a fellow fan of the original movie Now before I review, must tell you, I am a HUGE fan of BTiLC The outrageous mix of action, kung fu, mysticism and ghost story just blew me away as a kid and I love it today So when told If you loved that, check this out, I went for it.Honestly, I thought it was a little so so Picking up from the end of the movie, Jack Burton finds his way back to Chinatown and embroiled by a previously unseen subordinate of Lo Pan who is planning to re [...]


    13. John Carpenter presents Big Trouble in Little China Volume 1 The Hell of the Midnight Road The Ghosts of Storms, which continues the adventures of all American truck driver Jack Burton Picking up where the film left off, Jack returns to Chinatown for Wang s wedding but when Wang is abducted by Lo Pan s disciple Qiang Wu, Jack ends up taking a trip to the nether world with Egg Shen to retrieve the Three Storms to exchange for Wang s life The tone s comedic than the film and plays as a cartoon pa [...]


    14. I m a gonna let you in on a secret I ve never seen Big Trouble in Little China It was on my Netflix queue forEVER, but I never got around to it, and then I cancelled home internet TWC, bah and, with it, Netflix, so I still haven t seen it That s not to say I don t want to see it, I just haven t And I m not terribly familiar with the story I know it s Kurt Russell and he s in SF s Chinatown, and there s a girld maybe I m thinking of Chinatown Well, crud.So I got the first two volumes to the media [...]


    15. This is the sequel to Big Trouble in Little China in comic book form As a big fan of the movie, I was really looking forward to reading this Unfortunately, it didn t live up to my expectations First of all, the jokes are hit and miss Sometimes it approaches the comic genius of the movie, but most of the time it s just groan worthy Other things that I didn t care for were the fact that Wang is sidelined, there s no Gracie Law, and most of the action takes place outside of Chinatown Additionally, [...]


    16. As Jack Burton always says, Have you paid your dues Jack This is a fun nod at the flick and definitely for a fan From Lopan saying how pissed off he s getting to Jack being one of the worst fighters when the action hits you ll love how this fills in of the story and the fact that it picks off right where it left off with a demon stowaway while Jack drives off to his next adventure I dug all of the comics, waiting for this release on paperback since I liked the art work Volume 2 will also be som [...]


    17. Excellent continuation of a cult classic I didn t even know this comic series existed until I accidentally came upon it looking for something else I love all the John Carpenter Kurt Russell movies but Big Trouble in Little China is my favorite I always thought it would be cool if they made a sequel The story starts off exactly where the movie ends I don t want to give anything away but I will say this, if you loved the movie then you re sure to enjoy this too It s stays true to all the character [...]


    18. A good, comic sequel that works better in this medium then it would on screen, unlike its older, zany, feature film brother Something would just be lost in translation, I think, if this material came to theaters as Big Trouble in Little China 2 On and ah, I hate most licensed, written material but this is funny as hell and it s nice to see Jack Burton still being an All American moron again I m just saying Now, if it was a whole story instead of having a To Be Continued sign at the end, it would [...]


    19. Doesn t understand the humor, framing or reasons why the film is the masterpiece it is Carpenter s strength was never writing, it was his camera and when you remove that and the casts amazing performances especially Kurt Russell you get a limp imitation The attempts to fill out backstory feel like someone is trying to fit in heavy handed pathos from callbacks to the film Ugh Running theme for these Carpenter comic book adaptations is that the covers are pretty great, but all the interiors are l [...]


    20. The Goon creator Eric Powell and swashbuckling truck driver Jack Burton make a perfect match as this series picks up exactly where we last saw Burton about to meet an uncertain fate at the hands of one of Lo Pan s servant demons Fans of the original film will find plenty to like in this continuation of Jack s trials and tribulations in the mystical realm of The Midnight Road, with just the right mix of high adventure and off the wall humor that makes Jack Burton the great American hero that he i [...]


    21. The adventures of the oblivious, clueless lunk headed Jack Burton continue in this entreatingly tongue in cheek sequel to the classic B movie The artwork is suitably bad, but the dialogue captures the feel of the movies perfectly so that every time Burton opens his mouth you hear Kurt Russell giving it his best swagger Forget the forthcoming remake and grab these all new adventures knowing that there to come.


    22. It s a sequel to the movie in comic book form Either you think that is the best idea ever or we are no longer friends And, yeah, it s well done Totally captures the awesomeness and attitude of the movie.


    23. A perfect continuation of the movie But I wasn t an enormous fan of the movie Also that movie was made a long time ago, so the tone is less than progressive But it s silly, and fun, and glides over you without an aftertaste.


    24. You know what Jack Burton says, sometimes ya just gotta knuckle down and keep lightning in the old bottle instead of stirring up trouble and disappointment.



    25. Awesome comic book collection Fun continuation of the movie and shows us a softer side of Jack Burton in chapter 4 I like the art style The Jack Pete relationship is fun as well.
