    One thought on “John Carpenter's Tales for a Halloween Night”

    1. 3.5 StarsI'm not sure how I missed this when it was first released because I always watch out for books like this. It's a comic horror anthology with many different themes and varying art styles. Overall it's very enjoyable with nothing being great but nothing being bad either. If you enjoy horror anthology comics I can't you see you being disappointed with this one as I'm sure at least a few of the stories will appeal to you. I will be trying out the other volumes for sure.

    2. 3.0 Eh, ok ready, 6 stories, only really one good one, other 5 just ok. Each story either had ok writing with good graphics, or other way around, none were both though.

    3. I liked some of the stories in here, but after a particularly strong first selection from Carpenter, the rest really tapers off in quality. I was particularly disappointed by the wraparound segments - usually a spot for quality artists to play with a gruesome narrator (think EC comics, Creepy and Eerie), the segments here were the same static page with an awkward combination of narration and descriptions of spooky scenes - a pretty lame method for a comic. And advertising Steve Niles and Tim Bra [...]

    4. -A decent horror anthology by one of the genre's legends, John Carpenter. -I thoroughly enjoyed the last three of the six stories more than the first three, which lacked a good amount of originality honestly. -For all six stories, hands down, this is some of the best comic artwork I've ever seen. Some of the pages are good enough to stare at for hours. The art seems to get progressively better with each story as well, although that is more of a subjective opinion on style than a fact. -Overall, [...]

    5. Pretty typical horror anthology. Without JC's name, no one would take much notice. Still, the tales are entertaining.
