Without spoiling, we review the Volume 6 of the popular and successful horror graphic novel series, “John Carpenter’s Tales For a HalloweeNight”.
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 6 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. Each story is a standalone surprise that captures the essence of the best night of the year. We dare you to read it all the way to the end. If you get too scared, remember, it’s only a comic. It’s only a comic… or is it? Happy Halloween.

John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight Volume 6 is a fully colored 188 paged graphic novel consisting of multiple horror stories by different talented contributors all bound by intermission pages telling us about the world from a supernatural cat’s perspective. As the name suggests, the graphic novel makes for an awesome read especially during the month of Halloween.
The introduction by Sandy King Carpenter helps us to know the context and intention behind the comics, and helps us to relate as we all remember our first horror story or movie that made us horror fans. As the book starts, we see cats telling us about the human world and supernatural world, besides what happens in between. These narrative stories are skillfully told with just one pages before every major comic story and act as a sign of what to expect from the comic story that follows. The stories are full of variety, and showcase some of the best art and writing I have witnessed in the comics. The bonus artworks, creator biographies at the end helps to make the readers learn more about the team, and also appreciate the stories from the art perspective.
Stories are full of interesting characters, whether they be protagonists, antagonists or supernatural creatures. We see stories of innocent people falling prey to the supernatural, and also people inviting trouble due to their greed or bad deeds. Stories not only explore the supernatural but also human relations, and human life as well. Snow Spirit, a witch, dark mechanical creature from the hidden basement, supernatural museum, and many more interesting stories keep the audience reading till the end. The art, writing, lettering, and editing compliments the stories well. There’s horror, some occasional humor, and many different settings.
Overall, living up to the hype, Volume 6 of John Carpenter’s HalloweeNight is a must read for any horror fan looking for a satisfying read which thrills and entertains them during this Halloween month. Interesting characters, scary supernatural creatures, and diverse settings come to life thanks to the professional & beautiful illustrations that provide a graphic novel experience only Storm King & John Carpenter can provide. A perfect read & also a great gift for this Halloween for any horror fan.
