John Carpenter might be known for writing and directing some of the most well-known cult classic films within the science fiction and horror genres, but he has expanded his skills into music as well as comic books.
Through his publication company Storm King Comics, he has released seven volumes of the ‘Tales of Science Fiction’ that features story melding the sci-fi and horror genres. Early in May, Storm King announced the release of the latest entry ‘Hell.’
The announcement was released alongside a trailer to promote the upcoming eight-issue miniseries.
According to the official synopsis, “In New York City, a massive monster is destroyed by a subway train… and its surviving reptilian companion can speak English. In Columbia, a scientist crawls up from the depths of the Earth, bringing news of a miraculous new mineral power source… and demons below. In Texas, a convicted murderer is spared at the last minute by an international conglomerate… which wants to organize an expedition to the center of the Earth, with him as a guide. Because like the scientist, he’s been there. The whole team is headed straight to Hell.”
Dread Central reports that the comic book miniseries is based on stories by John Carpenter and Sandy King, the premier issue is written by David J. Schow with artwork from Andres Esparza and Sergio Martinez.
‘Hell’ follows the anthology series ‘Vortex 2.0,’ a sequel to the very first entry into the ‘Tales of Science Fiction’ anthology series.
Storm King Comics is an imprint of Storm King Productions, a production company founded by John Carpenter and his wife Sandy King.
Carpenter has directed several well-known films such as ‘Assault on Precinct 13,’ ‘Escape from New York,’ ‘Big Trouble in Little China,’ ‘In the Mouth of Madness,’ and the original ‘Halloween,’ which started the Michael Myers horror franchise.
