The biggest nerd event of the year may be over, but we still have some juicy news to share from San Diego Comic-Con 2018.

SYFY WIRE's Tara Bennett had the chance to sit down with Sandy King Carpenter, who gave us a little sneak peek at what's coming up next for Storm King Productions — including their new app for all things Carpenter and what comics will be coming up later this year.

With John Carpenter's Tales of Science-Fiction three-part miniseries Vault having finished its run, Sandy King Carpenter told us that the trade paperback is now available. As for Vortex, the eight-issue series has also ended its run but fans will have to wait until October before getting their hands on the trade paperback. Currently being released is The Standoff, a five-issue series penned by David J. Schow and illustrated by Andres Esparza.

She then told us about the Storm King Productions App (which is free to download for Android systems and iPhone) and gave us a little mind-blowing demonstration of the app in action.

Coming up later this year is the next John Carpenter's Tales for a Halloween Night anthology, which will hit comic book stores this October. They will also be launching Storm Kids Comics for ages 10 and up with Steve Niles writing a series called Sacred Hearts with art by Nat Jones. The new series is slated to be released early next year.

But that's not all! Comic book legend Louise Simonson will also be writing a sci-fi story for kids due out sometime next year.

Check out our exclusive interview for (a lot) more, including why Sandy King Carpenter believes kids should also get high quality horror stories.
