Storm King Productions has just unveiled the cover of John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight Volume 7, featuring Carpenter himself.
Revealed today on Instagram, the Volume 7 cover art by Tim Bradstreet features an image of John Carpenter, wearing sunglasses that reflect what appear an incoming transmission in one eye and a Halloween III reference(?) in the other. A jack-o’-lantern and skull mask are on either side of him.
The official synopsis: 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.
