Stephen King and Owen King‘s bestselling 2017 novel Sleeping Beauties is being adapted into a new 10-part graphic novel by Rio Youers (The Forgotten Girl) and Alison Sampson (Winnebago Graveyard).
In the thrilling story, “a strange sleeping sickness, known as Aurora, has fallen over the world, and strangest of all, it only affects women. In the small town of Dooling, a mysterious woman has walked out of the woods; she calls herself Eve and leaves a trail of carnage behind her. More mysterious: she’s the only woman not falling asleep.”
The graphic novel’s art is incredible, truly frame-worthy. I really hope that at some point the covers are released as a series of posters. I’ve seen several of the covers, take my word for it, they’re gorgeous.
If the rest of the series is anything like the first well written and illustrated book, we’re in for something special. But when the name King is involved you already know it’s going to be good. I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say this, book one gets a perfect score of 5 out 5. I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the comic book series.
The absolutely stunning Sleeping Beauties graphic novel will arrive on June 24th from IDW Publishing. You can pre-order your copy now.
