Mike DeAngelo, creator of Tellest, joins Kev once again to chat about the last day of ReedPOP‘s inaugural Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia. At the convention, Kev had the opportunity to speak with Sandy King-Carptener, an award-winning producer, writer, editor, and CEO of John Carpenter’s in-house comic line, Storm King Comics. They chat about horror, past and present; for adults and kids, Sandy’s career, and of course what’s happening at Storm King Comics!

ABOUT SANDY KING-CARPENTER

With a background in art, photography and animation, Sandy King’s filmmaking career has included working with John Cassavetes, Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Mann, Walter Hill, John Hughs, and John Carpenter.

She has produced films ranging from public service announcements on Hunger Awareness to a documentary on astronaut/teacher Christa McAuliffe, and major theatrical hits like John Carpenter’s Vampires. From working underwater with sharks in the Bahamas to converting 55 acres of New Mexican desert into the vast, red planet of Mars, new challenges interest and excite her. The world of comic books is no exception. It allows her to bring her art and story telling experience to a new discipline with an expanded group of collaborators.

She is married to director John Carpenter and lives in Hollywood, California.

ABOUT STORM KING COMICS

Storm King Comics, formed in 2012 as a division of Storm King Productions, is headed by writer/producer and editor Sandy King. Along with her husband, director John Carpenter, King focuses on bringing the best writers from the worlds of comics, movies and novels together to bring their special brand of horror and sci-fi entertainment to comics. Their flagship comic book title John Carpenter’s Asylum has become a global fan favorite, followed by the award-winning annual anthology, John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight, and most recently the monthly anthology series, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction.
