Starting tomorrow, thanks to a little help from publisher BOOM! Studios, the badass motherf***er himself Samuel L. Jackson will be releasing his first writing project in the form of “COLD SPACE”. The story will mark the first time the actor has ventured into writing for the medium and it will (unsurprisingly) feature his likeness. Inside you can read the massive 14 page preview of the first issue thanks to Bleeding Cool News. Read on for the skinny.
Samuel L. Jackson has got to be one of the coolest people on the planet. And no, I don’t think I’m exaggerating. The genre veteran and fanboy favorite has done it all it seems, from fighting snakes on a mother-f*ckin plane, voicing a samurai with hair that has to qualify as a fire hazard, to tormenting that one guy from ‘Say Anything’ as the owner of a haunted hotel. It seems that the sky is the limit for Jackson, but believe it or not there is one thing he hasn’t tried his hand at yet: writing his own comic book series. That is until it was announced that BOOM! Studios and the actor have teamed up to deliver a completely original monthly co-written by Jackson. Read on for all the details on ‘COLD SPACE’ beyond the break!
The film centers on a ruthless assassin who unleashes a crate full of lethal snakes aboard a packed passenger jet over the Pacific Ocean in order to eliminate a witness in protective custody. The rookie pilot and frightened passengers must band together to survive.
