Spoiler-Free Review

In this year’s edition of John Carpenter’s Tales For A HalloweeNight (Volume 7), the collection of horror stories are sprinkled with preface messages (interstitials) imagined as a cat which seems like an otherworldly being telling us about its observations of the human world. Besides that, there are a total 13 stories, an awesome introduction by Sean Sobczak, and bonus art pinups and biographies of the team. The 204 paged color graphic novel is full of exciting and visually satisfying content!      

The stories are not just about Halloween but also explore aliens, spirits, the life after death, mannequins, mimes and even the social media dangers! Stories that explore the Halloween theme, feel like among the best Halloween stories you will see in the comic form. A tale filled with the Wild West theme was nothing short of a Hollywood movie! Then, two stories especially stand out- a story about the concept of beauty and a story about an ill man’s wish (Last Rights) – both of which are unique stories that touch on many different emotions and aspects of human life besides the horror undertone. In all stories, every dialogue is well crafted to suit the situation and make the things exciting until the very end of each story. Often feeling like a rollercoaster ride, the twists and turns of each story is sure to make you go through a lot of emotions with horror being the highlight of it.      

The anthology stories are well written and feel like they belong together despite successfully maintaining their own unique identities. Art is also unique to each story and fits the mood of everything happening on the comic panes which is perfect because you can feel every story having a different tone of horror and even other emotions like nostalgia. Editing and lettering make sure that everything look neat and clean with no page going to waste. As recommended by the publisher Storm King Comics, this horror anthology is for mature readers as there is gore, violence, blood, strong language and partial nudity- all in the horror context. However, nothing feels excess and fits well with the theme. In fact, this masterpiece gets its scares amplified because of the strong visuals being illustrated to accompany the storytelling!      

  In conclusion, John Carpenter’s Tales For a HalloweeNight Volume 7 has a stellar combination of stories which once again prove that this series is a storytelling & visual masterpiece that takes the crown as the best horror comic anthology to read this Halloween!    

 Grab your copy today and prepare for among the best Halloweens you will ever have!
