John Carpenter’s wife, Sandy King, owns a comic company. Storm King Comics is a division of Storm King Productions, and Sandy is both the head producer and the head writer.
This will be the first time the company has been to San Diego Comic-Con, find them at booth #4504, and to mark that they’ll be selling special Storm King bundle bags. The bundles include; John Carpenter’s Asylum Volume 1 TPB, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Vault TPB, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Vortex issues #1-8, John Carpenter’s Tales for A HalloweeNight Volume 2 or 3 TPB and a Storm King bumper sticker which is $103 SRP for $50.
There’s a big reward for getting their early as the first 10 bags have one item signed by John Carpenter.
The Storm King Comics panel, on Friday, in Room 28DE (at 8pm) will launch The Standoff. This is a new storyline with aliens vs cops and prisoners caught in the middle. Panelists will include Janice Chiang (DC Superhero Girls), Sandy King Carpenter (They Live, Vampires), Tim Bradstreet (Hellblazer, Punisher), David J. Schow (The Crow, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning), Sergio Martinez (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic,Transformers: Rising Storm) and Andres Esparza (Zenescope, Double Take).
