John Carpenter’s Comic Book, ‘Tales For a Halloween Night’ Arrives in Time For the Season

John Carpenter's latest comic book arrives just in time for Halloween

by Trey Hilburn III

The creator of Escape From New York, The Thing, They Live, Christine, The Fog and a ton of others is now coming at us with more radness to add to his body work and his comic series. This time a new volume in Tales For Halloween Night.

This is Carpenter’s seventh volume in the series. But, what makes this one really special is that it is the actual Halloween release. 200 pages of awesome Halloween stories just in time for Halloween and pumpkin coffee. We are truly blessed, you guys.


John Carpenter’s Tales For a Halloween Night’s description goes like this:

From the mind of John Carpenter, the man who brought you the classic horror film Halloween and all of the scares beyond, and the heart of writer, editor, producer Sandy King, comes a baker’s dozen of twisted tales of terror, tricks, and treats. In volume 7 of the award-winning graphic novel series, Carpenter and King bring together the best storytellers from movies, novels, and comics for another spine-tingling collection of stories that will haunt you. Each story is a standalone surprise that captures the essence of the best night of the year. We dare you to read it all the way to the end. If you get too scared, remember, it’s only a comic. It’s only a comic… or is it? Happy Halloween.

With creators John Carpenter, Sandy King, Jaime Carrillo, Elena Carrillo, Kealan Patrick Burke, Damien Worm, Neo Edmund, Jan Duursema, Nick Percival, David J. Schow, Gustavo Vazquez, Alec Worley, Ben Willsher, Amanda Deibert, Cat Staggs, Mike Sizemore, Dave Kennedy, Duane Swierczynski, Andrea Mutti, Anthony Burch, Sean Sobczak, Andy Price, Tim Bradstreet and many more.

What a fantastic line-up of artists. I absolutely adore Tim Bradstreet’s work. I also love that Sandy King is also on the roster of rad talent.
