Stephen King's First Graphic NovelDan Strohschein
Cemetary Dance, the largest fiction horror magazine on the market, is currently working on the printing of a story from the master himself, Stephen King. It's a full size graphic novel, produced on a special sized paper and special stock, artistically rendered by master artist Glenn Chadbourne.
From Cemetary Dance:
World Fantasy Award winner Cemetery Dance Publications, critically acclaimed artist Glenn Chadbourne, and New York Times bestselling author Stephen King are proud to announce The Secretary of Dreams, the master of horror's first unabridged graphic short story collection!
Featuring a half-dozen classic tales of terror personally selected by King, this collection presents his stories for the first time in the tradition of the pulp horror comics. Spanning close to 250 oversized pages, the hundreds of illustrations and full comic panels from acclaimed Maine artist Glenn Chadbourne transform The Secretary of Dreams into a work of art. Not one word from King's stories has been left out -- instead they've been brought to life by hundreds of pen and ink drawings by Chadbourne! The featured stories are: "The Road Virus Heads North," "Uncle Otto's Truck," "Rainy Season," "The Reach," "Jerusalem's Lot," and "Home Delivery."
This exclusive Cemetery Dance title will feature an oversized deluxe trim-size and is available in three editions: a slipcased Gift Edition limited to 5,000 copies, a traycased deluxe Limited Edition limited to 750 copies signed by King and Chadbourne, and a deluxe Lettered Edition limited to 52 copies signed by King and Chadbourne and housed in a deluxe traycase.
There are no other editions planned of this title, which we plan to ship in the spring, but King has already selected six more stories for a second volume that will be announced in 2006, and Chadbourne is hard at work on the illustrations!
