Escape from New York Vol. 3: Escape to New York by Christopher Sebela and Maxim Simic

Books & Nachos

Snake Plissken just wants to get away, but first, he’s got a bone to pick with his former president. In the third volume of BOOM! Studios’ Escape from New York series, the hero of John Carpenter’s iconic action film returns to his roots, breaking into the world’s largest prison to take down an arch nemesis. It’s the showdown this series has been building toward, and hosts Jakob and Jason are here to break it down. Could it overcome the campiness of Escape from Florida and the unneeded detour that was Escape from Siberia? Well, this one’s got a flying car. Nuff said.

Escape from Siberia by Christopher Sebela, Diego Barreto, Mike Henderson

Books & Nachos

Snake Plissken leaves the Sunshine State for Siberia in the second volume of "Escape from New York" by BOOM! Studios. John Carpenter's eyepatch-wearing outlaw is sent to a frozen warzone by a vengeful president, but before he can face down his enemy, Snake must outwit bears, soldiers, a man from his past, and a cult of comet worshippers. It's as crazy as it sounds, but is it any good? Jakob and Jason follow Snake's journey in our ongoing Books & Nachos series, which ties into our Escape from New York retrospective on Now Playing Podcast.

Escape from Florida by Christopher Sebela, Diego Barreto, Tim Bradstreet

Books & Nachos

In 2014, comic book publisher BOOM! Studios acquired the rights to produce new stories based on John Carpenter’s “Escape from New York” and its hero Snake Plissken. Their first story picks up seconds after the finale of Carpenter’s 1981 film, with Plissken on the run from the United States Police Force and seeking refuge in the “free” state of Florida. But Snake’s in for a helluva fight at every turn. Does “Escape from Florida” live up to the legacy of Carpenter’s creation? It’s hard to say when you can’t tell what’s happening from page to page. Follow Snake’s journey with hosts Jakob and Jason, and find out if this is a worthy successor.
