“There’s a war coming to the City of Angels.”

John Carpenter‘s name is synonymous with horror. For five decades, he has given fans nightmares with his legendary films, characters, and music. In 2013, one of the greatest horror movie directors of all time, Carpenter, stepped into another medium for his genre; comics. Along with his wife and co-writer Sandy King as well as actor/writer Thomas Ian Griffith (John Carpenter’s Vampires), the Halloween patriarch created his Storm King Productions line of comics, namely, Asylum. Asylum tells the story of a down and out priest Daniel Beckett, a man who sleeps around, smokes, curses, and has lost his connection. He is a demon hunter, and soon he’s the suspect in brutal murders chased by flawed but effective LAPD cop Jack Duran. When Duran’s son is kidnapped by a demon, enemies become partners and Duran and Beckett race against Hell itself to save him. Beckett is much more than meets the eye it turns out.

When a series of gruesome murders befalls the western town of Abbadon, the famous U.S. Marshall Wes Garrett is called in to put his reputation to the test. Reluctantly working side by side with the sheriff of the town, Colt Dixon, Garrett wastes no time in looking for answers. But as the investigation deepens — and more bodies begin to pile up — it would seem a copycat killer is on the loose — one who brutally murders in the same way as the man who gave Garrett his renowned name.
