John Carpenter's own comic book publisher is launching his latest comic book Storm Kids, written by Paul Storrie and drawn by Jeff Balke and David Alvarez. An all-ages horror comic book under the masthead of the director of movies such as Halloween, They Live, The Thing and The Fog. But now with chipmunks. We also get more Tales Of Science Fiction Vortex 2.0 which is closer to what you might have usually expected from the man. Here are Storm King's October 2020 solicitations in full.

(W) Paul D. Storrie (CA) Jeff Balke (A/CA) David Alvarez
Oh no! Who's been stealing fruit from all the gardens in Arbordale? Was it the prankster Chester Chipmunk? Or maybe Baby Fang? Accusations fly until someone suggests that maybe it was the Ghost of Bunnyburrow Manor! Neighbors have claimed to have seen it flying around, but are ghosts even real? And if they are, why would they be stealing fruit? Stanley Squirrel offers to lead an expedition into the house to see if it really is haunted and find out just what's been going on. But as the gang creeps around the house looking for answers, what they find isn't what any of them were expecting! In Shops: Oct 07, 2020 SRP: $4.99
