An astonishingly successful (and, with more than 50 novels under his belt, prolific) author, King has dipped his toe into comic books a handful of times during his career. Outside of his contribution to the 1985 charity anthology Heroes for Hope
, King also wrote Creepshow
, the Bernie Wrightson-illustrated adaptation of the George A. Romero movie, and more recently, one of the two stories that made up the opening arc of Scott Snyder's American Vampire
over at Vertigo (there are also the numerous Dark Tower
titles over at Marvel, although those are adaptations by other writers of his prose books).
With King experimenting more with different formats in recent years — he's working on plays, novels and ebooks these days — how long before someone convinces him to go it alone on an all-new, all-original comic book work?
