The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK #5 from BOOM! Studios. The story is written by Christopher Sebela, with art by Diego Barreto, colors by Marissa Louise and lettering by Ed Dukeshire.
Snake Plissken has been dumped in the middle of Siberia and an ongoing dogfight. Circumstances (and the desire to survive) have him reluctantly joining the U.S. Forces…until he can find a way out of there. When the team gets back to base just in time to be briefed about the current situation in America and what Russia may be planning to do. Plissken is ready to leave, but little does he know there is a bullseye on him. There is a reason why he was stranded here…
Sebela does a very good job not only capturing Snake’s attitude, but expanding the world that John Carpenter created in the classic cult film. Diego Barreto and Marissa Louise team up to create a striking visual that's pretty action-packed...almost cinematic. All-in-all, this has been a pretty fun and interesting series so far.
ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK #5 is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.boom-studios.com.
