Check out the cover for John Carpenter's comic book, Asylum

Mar. 14, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

Not unlike his colleague Wes Craven, John Carpenter is diving into the world of comic books. Hey, as it gets more and more difficult to raise money for a film, you've got to go with another creative outlet, and comics are a great forum.

Carpenter, along with his partner Sandy King and his VAMPIRES star Thomas Ian Griffith, have created ASYLUM, and we've got the new cover for you below. Is it me, or does homeboy resemble Dolph Lundgren a little bit?

Here's what ASYLUM, which was penned by Bruce Jones, is all about:

Theres a war coming and the battle ground is the City of Angels. In tunnels beneath the city, in the dark alleys among the homelessdemons lurk and Lucifer bides his time. One man knows. One man sees. One man walks those dark streets.

ASYLUM comes out nationwide in May. Check out some pages on its official Facebook page.

Extra Tidbit: Are you going to flip through the pages of ASYLUM once it comes out?

Er...

Doesn't look much like Dolph Lundgren to me. Looks a lot like John Constantine (Hellblazer) though, and since Leonardo Manco has done art for Hellblazer I'm a little bit suspicious. Probably nothing for DC to sue over though...

Also, much as I love some of Carpenter's work, putting his name on this doesn't count for much. He was "horror director" on Fear 3 and that was neither scary or even a decent game, and meanwhile he can still raise money to make films but that doesn't mean they'll be

Then again, he proved he can still deliver the goods with that Masters of Horror episode Cigarette Burns. I guess it comes down to whether he actually cares about the project or is simply cashing in.
