Going live tomorrow October 15th will be the first horror web comic exclusive on StephenKing.com, The Little Green God of Agony. Being adapted from comic artist Dennis Calero — co-creator of Xmen Noir and Devil Inside — the web comic will run for 8 weeks in different installments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’m really liking this title and the art so far is very cool. Definitely looking forward to this; plus with his next two novels not releasing for quite a while it will be nice to read some new material from the Master of Horror, Stephen King.
“I have been a huge Stephen King fan for as long as I can remember,” explained Calero. “To be able to work on ANYTHING with him is an honor. And to make this announcement at New York Comic Con is icing on the cake!“
The story circles around Katherine “Kat” MacDonald who is an RN hired to care for wealthy client, Andrew Newsome, who has gone from doctor to doctor trying to find a quick cure for his lingering pain to no avail. She is convinced that he would overcome the injuries he sustained in an airplane crash but he is unwilling to endure the pain of physical therapy. In desperation, Newsome has hired a healer, Reverend Rideout, who promises to “expel” his pain.
