I haven't read the BIG TROUBLE comics yet, but I picked up the first few trades, which were written by Eric Powell, who does THE GOON. Anything Powell does is worth reading.
Smokes. I tried volume one and made it about fifteen pages before shutting it down. In it, the monster hanging off the truck at the end of the movie ends up getting into the semi and, instead of mauling Burton to death, licks him and essentially becomes his pet/friend. Later Burton dresses him up Ninja-Turtle style so they can walk around in public together. Embarrassing. Perhaps it gets better, but I won't be finding out.
