Big Trouble In Little China #10

Only Jack Burton could make Hell seem like a place that wouldn’t be too bad really if you just, you know, did your thing and didn’t buy into its’ hype. Of course, that might only work for Jack Burton.
I’m not going to go into a ton of detail on this review, simply because I don’t think it’s necessary. This book is a ridiculous amount of fun. Period. Eric Powell is bringing a genuinely fun and funny story to the page that strikes true to the heart of the source material. You can hear Kurt Russell speaking the lines on the page right into your head. (Or at least I can. Of course, the voice in my head often sounds like Kurt Russell. But sometimes it sounds like Abe Vigoda. Those are some dark times… dark, dark times.)
Visually, Brian Chruilla is continuing to match Erics’ story panel for panel. I particularly like how ridiculous yet utterly bad ass Jack looks when he walks off wearing his poker earned demon spoils. He’s like some kind of Mongol Barbarian striding through the depths of Hell. And when Jack offers to buy the gator faced demon a beer at the Last Bar in Hell, the look of sheer joy on that green dudes face is priceless. And I’m not sure why Brian drew that pudgy little demon with pokey nipples, but it happened.
I dig this book. If you like, well, fun, you should pick it up.
