THE ADVENTURES OF JACK BURTON
Episode Studies

This is PopApostle's study of the adventures of Jack Burton, clownish hero of Big Trouble in Little China and later comic book exploits. I have chosen to call these studies the Adventures of Jack Burton, borrowing the unofficial subtitle of the comic book series published by IDW in 2014-2016. Here, I am presenting my studies relating to each, such as commentary on the weapons and equipment used by the characters, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings.

 

Even though there are no TV episodes featuring Jack Burton at this time, I am continuing to use the term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.
