Tales for a HalloweeNight Vol. 5, NYCC exclusive convention cover

Storm King is ready to spread Halloween cheer and horrors galore with this anthology at this year’s New York Comic Con, along with some other surprises.

The horror comics publisher has had a pretty busy year so far. They announced their new Storm Kids line aimed at kids and young adults at San Diego Comic Con and are spreading the word on possible TV shows based on their comics. They have also announced NYCC exclusives, such as variant covers for their anthology and the premier of the John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Twitch graphic novel.

Storm King Comics CEO Sandy King will be participating in a panel called “Wonder Women: Female Comic CEOS,” which will take place in room 1B03 on Thursday, October 3rd at 6:30 pm.

Storm King Comics will be in booth 2304 at NYCC and they will have John Carpenter-signed trades and tour DVDs on sale.
