STEPHEN KING'S "DARK TOWER" COMICS


The king of pop lit is now coming to stake his claim in comics: Stephen King is expanding his "Dark Tower" stories into a series of graphic novels for Marvel Comics. As I understand it, King himself provides the plots, which are then scripted by Peter David, (as just announced at Comic Book Resources), with art by Jae Lee. This could be very cool—and one of the highest-profile comics to ever hit market.

In a similar vein, back when I first published my debut novel, Forgiving Solomon Long, I had hoped to explore some of the story threads in a prequel graphic novel or comic book mini-series. But since then, I have gotten too busy working on my next stories—including the third novel in my Kansas City series, as well as some other, unrelated, comics projects—so any "Kansas City Blues" comics will just have to wait. (For what it's worth.)
