Stephen King Update

Stephen King To Co-Write ‘American Vampire’ Comic Book: "Acclaimed horror novelist Stephen King is hardly a stranger to comic books thanks to Marvel's adaptations of 'The Dark Tower' and 'The Stand,' and Del Rey's upcoming adaptation of 'The Talisman,' but the writer is looking to branch out into unchartered territory with entirely original comic book content.

According to The New York Times, King will co-write a new series titled 'American Vampire' for DC Comics' Vertigo imprint. The title's first five-issue arc will feature two 16-page stories, one written by King and the other written by Scott Snyder. Rafael Albuquerque will illustrate."

I am starting - maybe way past starting - to get pretty tired of vampire stuff. Does everyone have to jump on the bandwagon?

Oh, of course they do. There might be a few bucks in it, and profit is the only motive left in America, lanf of the greedy.

Not to sound too jaded or grumpy, of course.
