Myself and Durham Red artist Ben Willsher have landed a spooky story in this year’s Tales for a HalloweeNight, the annual anthology from the husband/wife team of producer Sandy King and horror legend John Carpenter.
Wait a second… I’m in an anthology headlined by the guy who made the movies I cut my teeth on: Dark Star, Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Fog, Escape From New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live and more!
This is my first script for a US comic and it’s a folk horror tale set in rural Ireland about a young woman returning home to find her mother threatened by a shadowy presence in the nearby woods.
It features alongside a host of tales from a range of diverse talents including Elena Carrillo (author), Renae De Liz (author/artist), Amanda Deibert (author), Dennis Calero (author/artist), Jennie Wood (author), Duane Swierczynski (author), Frank Tieri (author), Andy Price (author/artist), David J. Schow (author), Jaime Carrillo (artist), Cat Staggs (artist), Richard P. Clark (artist), Sara Richard (Artist), Tim Bradstreet (Artist), Nick Percival (artist), as well as John Carpenter himself and series editor Sandy King (an all-round wonderful lady).
Check out Volume Six of John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight, the award-winning graphic novel series fast becoming a horror comic institution!
