Without spoilers, we review the sci-fi horror comic, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction- Hell Issue #7 of 8, published now by Storm King Comics! (Link below the review)
In New York City, a massive monster is destroyed by a subway train… and its surviving reptilian companion can speak English. In Columbia, a scientist crawls up from the depths of the Earth, bringing news of a miraculous new mineral power source… and demons below. In Texas, a convicted murderer is spared at the last minute by an international conglomerate… which wants to organize an expedition to the center of the Earth, with him as a guide. Because like the scientist, he’s been there. The whole team is headed straight to Hell.
Gargoyles in Hell? they’re real! Captured, jailed and used for arena combat and lab experimentation by magnificent living monsters from Earth’s medieval past, the surviving members of the CalEx incursion team must figure out whether escape – or survival – is even possible down in the Underneath. These creatures have always been with us. Waiting for their chance to come back, topside… and reclaim the surface-world of Earth for their own.

Published by Storm King Comics, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction Hell issue 7 of 8 features the Underworld world that’s like a hell full of creatures, unforgiving atmosphere and the worst human deception.. This is a tale you must read to believe!
This science fiction series gives scientific twist to the concept of Hell as we saw a team of professionals being hired to venture down the planet and towards the core with the objective of finding a rare mineral, besides the origin of humanoid reptilians which appeared in the subway of New York. A friendlier one with an ability to speak English language has accompanied the expedition team, which also has our main protagonist, Stefanie Billings, an occult specialist with a great problem solving ability and providing useful narration to this comic series. All the previous comic issues featured the thrilling journey of reaching this hell and provided insights into the team with some entertaining situations. Now with this issue, we come closer to the finale…
This issue starts with an action packed battle with scary creatures that look like gargoyles possessed by demons. The majority of the team is not in a good condition. We learn about an infuriating twist to the story that adds a different tone to the entire story. Stefanie Billings and others soon discover the sinister plan of these otherworldly creatures to invade the surface of the planet. There is also a gladiator themed scenario that is scary and thrilling to see. Kartkas, our talking reptilian friend and Stefanie’s old friend, Mr. Samples both show valor in scenarios that are nothing short of an action movie. Towards the end, there’s a life or death situation in which we learn more about Stefanie’s gifts and strong ethics. Ending on a high note, it makes you look forward to the next issue, which is the 8th and the final one.
