Today, Boom! Studios released the teaser below, drawn by Eric Powell, of the character Jack Burton from the movie Big Trouble in Little China. Looks like fans of the 1986 classic action film will finally get to see one of the coolest characters in 80s cinema make his way into a comic book series. Check it out!

All fans want to know is "when" and "can we have it now instead?" We'll keep you updated on what may be the coolest idea in years.

"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Like I told my last wife, I says, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes."

@wardishy: Nice.

This is some pretty cool news. I wonder if this will be a comic adaption of the movie or the continuing adventures of Jack Burton.

Now they just need to make a Last Dragon comic and I can die happy. I take all my life cues, wisdom and philosophy directly from Lo Pan and Sho Nuff. To think that there will be a Big Trouble comic. Feel pretty good. I'm not, uh, I'm not scared at all. I just feel kind of... feel kind of invincible.

That is awesome - Jack Burton is one cool character who definitely deserves a shot at his own series.
