In fact, comic books is what made the man want to become a writer in the first place because when he was a child, he started reading horror comics like “Tales from the Crypt”, “Tales From the Vault”, etc. His first comic book released was “Creepshow” which was later made into a major motion picture.
Now King is releasing the Dark Tower series into comic book versions with Marvel. Soon he will release “The Stand” into comic book versions with Marvel too. While Stephen King himself wasn’t there in person at the San Diego comic con, he was at the New York Comic Con to promote the Dark Tower graphic novels with Marvel.
