From the mind of John Carpenter himself is “John Carpenter’s Asylum”.

There’s a war coming to the City of Angels. In tunnels beneath the city, in the dark alleys among the homeless, demons lurk and Lucifer bides his time. One man knows. One man sees. One man walks those dark streets. Father Daniel Beckett’s seen demons and he’s spoken to the Devil, but he’s never seen an angel and he’s never spoken to God. Obsessed and driven as much by betrayal as righteousness and anger as redemption, he walks the smoke-filled encampments of lost souls like Dante’s nine rings of the Inferno. He is God’s warrior at war with God.

From Legendary Entertainment’s line of comics is “The Harvester”.

Witness the dawning of a legend as The Harvester rises, enforcing his own breed of blood-spattered justice as he battles an unruly biker gang terrorizing a small town. In the wake of the emergence, a young academic obsessed with finding the truth partners with a rogue investigator eager to join her hunt. Together, they just might expose the Harvester for whoever – or whatever – he really is…

IMG_20160119_114052Another solid month from the folks at Box of Dread. The Reaction figure, art print, comic & MP3’s were a nice way to celebrate the birthday of legendary director John Carpenter. The Harvester comic and the Vampirella calendar were nice extras too.
