John Carpenter Launches New Asylum Comic Series

Posted by at 1:12 pm on September 26, 2014

Writer/Director John Carpenter made his name with cult movie clashes between good and evil with horror and humor, and now he’s turning his attention to comics. Working alongside his producer wife Sandy King Carpenter, comics writer Bruce Jones and artist Leonardo Manco, Carpenter has launched the comic series Asylum.

With seven issues out and a collection due out by Halloween, Asylum delves into familiar territory for fans of Carpenter’s work such as Prince of Darkness and follows a priest named Daniel Beckett who’s more familiar with hell than heaven but is nevertheless called in by Catholic leaders to investigate a flood of demonic possessions in Los Angeles. From the storytelling to the artwork, Asylum feels like 1980s horror movies that Carpenter made his name with.
