Stephen King works on horror comic

28th October 2009

Bestselling novelist Stephen King is working on his first graphic novel with short story writer Scott Snyder and artist Rafael Albuquerque.

The Salem's Lot author will contribute a storyline to comic publisher Vertigo's new American Vampire series, which introduces the horror world to a vicious breed of bloodsuckers who – unlike most vampires – draw their power from the sun.

King commented: 'I love vampire stories and the idea of following the dark exploits of a uniquely American vampire really lit up my imagination.'

Snyder added that it is 'a dream come true' to work on the new project with the horror writer, who he cites as being a major influence on his work.

King's storyline will introduce Skinner Sweet, the first American vampire and a bank-robbing cowboy in the 1880s, while Snyder's tale deals with an aspiring starlet in the glamorous jazz era.

Recently, it was reported that Frank Beddor has based his latest graphic novel - Hatter M: Mad With Wonder - on Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter.
