Big Trouble In Little China to Come Back as a Graphic Novel

Big Trouble in Little China is one of those not-so-guilty pleasures that geeks everywhere enjoy. It’s not John Carpenter’s best movie, but it’s definitely a lot of fun, and it’s always good to have Kurt Russell and Carpenter working together. 

John Carpenter's Halloween at 35

Like the classic directors he worshipped, John Carpenter's name appeared above the title of his movies, and with the enormous success of Halloween, it paid off in spades.
