Even though he’s known as the Master of Horror, John Carpenter is a visionary of science fiction as well. With films like Dark Star (1974), The Thing (1982), Starman (1984), and They Live (1987) under his belt, it’s safe to say he knows his way around space, aliens, and outer-worldly beings. Earlier this summer, he began his latest venture in the world of genre with Tales of Science Fiction, a monthly anthology series under the label of Storm King Comics, started by him and his wife Sandy King Carpenter. The first story is Vault, a three-issue space tale about a crew that finds a mysterious ship and encounters horror onboard. Reminiscent of films like Event Horizon and Aliens, author James Ninness introduces a colorful array of characters… and then leads them into certain doom. Issue #1 was released on July 26, 2017, with the second issue in the three-volume series hitting stores this week.

Check out my review for Vault #2 here below.

“There are moments when all of humanity goes to the same three words… What the F*ck?”

John Carpenter is known by his legions of fans as “The Master of Horror.” But when you look back at the visionary director’s filmography you see the influence and impact science fiction has had on his over 50-year career. His first feature film was 1974’s Dark Star, a sci-fi comedy set in the reaches of deep space. After hitting it big with Halloween in 1978, a film that became the highest grossing independent film ever made at the time, he would return to sci-fi multiple times. Possibly his greatest achievement was 1982’s The Thing, a remake of the Howard Hawks 50s classic about an alien who grotesquely impersonates crew members in the Antarctic. He returned to the genre with Starman (1984), They Live (1987), Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), and Ghosts of Mars (2001). Carpenter is now devoted to new mediums to translate his unique visions of horror and science fiction. Alongside his wife and collaborator Sandy King Carpenter, they have ventured into the world of graphic novels and comics, releasing titles like Asylum Vol 1 and 2 as well as Tales For A Halloween Night for Storm King Comics.
