Back almost an entire year ago during the last SDCC we brought you the news that “HALLOWEEN” director John Carpenter would be making his comic book debut with “ASYLUM”. The title was a welcome offering to the horror web-comic realm (The web only series is expected for a 12 volume run), but since then news has been nonexistent on the title…until today. Making its FORMAL debut later this week at the con, ‘ASYLUM’ will be illustrated by the creator, whose art will be complimented by such scribes as andy King, Thomas Ian Griffith, Bruce Jones, Jason Craig, Russell Jackson, Jeff Balke and Austin Janowsky. Inside you can check out a couple of images of the book, and don’t forget to keep it locked here to Bloody-Disgusting.com’s Graphic Content as we continue to bring you the most up to date horror comic announcements straight from the con! Read on for the skinny..
< “From writer/director John Carpenter comes the new comic book Asylum. With Sandy King, Thomas Ian Griffith, Bruce Jones, Jason Craig, Russell Jackson, Jeff Balke and Austin Janowsky on his team, Carpenter will illustrate the story of Father Daniel Beckett, who’s never seen an angel or spoken to God, but has seen a demon and spoken to the Devil… and there is a war brewing in the City of Angels.”
