Book Review: John Carpenter's Tales For A Halloween Night Volume 1, 2015.

A Graphic Anthology edited by John Carpenter, yes that JOHN CARPENTER, and Sandy King channels the old pre-code E. C. Comics with six separate tales of terror and humor.

I discovered this volume when doing some business with Storm King Productions. I never knew this existed and there it was on the website and in their shop.

Each tale is introduced by the GROUNDSCREEPER whose prologue sets the tone to each comic by such writers as Carpenter, King, Trent Olsen, David Schow, James Ninnes and Duane Swierczynski.

These creeps and screams are artfully illustrated by John Bogdanove, Frederico De Luca, Tone Rodriguez, Richard P. Clark, Leonardo Manco, Brett Simmons and Darick Robertson.

This comic collection has all the feel of mini movie with installments that will bring both frights and smiles and all the execution of Tales from the Crypt.

Honestly I can't wait for Volume 2 but get Volume 1 and enjoy your Halloween. Check out Storm King Productions, buy a signed one; my what a treat this something you don't see these days and something if you do find in your comic shop just doesn't the deliver the punch.

Carpenter has proven he is a master of horror with THE FOG, THE THING, and HALLOWEEN alone. But now he has proven to bring us masterful tales for a Halloween night.
