Storm King Comics describes the new installment, "From the mind of John Carpenter, the man who brought you the classic horror film Halloween and all of the scares beyond, and the heart of writer, editor, producer Sandy King, comes a baker's dozen of twisted tales of terror, tricks, and treats. In volume 7 of the award-winning graphic novel series, Carpenter and King bring together the best storytellers from movies, novels, and comics for another spine-tingling collection of stories that will haunt you. Each story is a standalone surprise that captures the essence of the best night of the year. We dare you to read it all the way to the end. If you get too scared, remember, it's only a comic. It's only a comic... or is it? Happy Halloween."

Recent years have seen added excitement around the Tales for a Halloween Night series, thanks to Carpenter and partner Sandy King Carpenter collaborating to adapt the concept into a TV series. The project was being developed with SYFY at one point, though Carpenter confirmed in 2019 that this iteration of the project wouldn't be moving forward.
Since that update, no further details about the TV series have officially been revealed.
