He may not be making movies anymore, but John Carpenter has never stopped delivering the horror goodness we’ve come to expect from him. In recent years, Carpenter has returned to making the kind of music that helped make his movies so memorable, and this summer he’s heading back into the world of comic books with a new series he created with wife Sandy King.

The first issue of the monthly series, titled “Vault,” will hit comic store shelves on July 26th, with other multi-issue stories “Vortex” and “Untitled” following in its wake.
