As usual, the folks over at Lilja’s Library have provided the latest info on all things Stephen King related. Today they announced the adaptor and artist for the comic book and graphic novel versions of The Talisman, which was co-written by King and Peter Straub.
The book will be drawn by Tony Shasteen, who has been an illustrator since 1995; and it will be written by Robin Furth, who co-writes the Dark Tower comics. Lettering and project management will be handled by Dabel Brothers Publishing with the first issue anticipated to be released in early fall, 2009. In addition, television rights to The Talisman are under development by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy.
For those unfamiliar with the tale, The Talisman is the story of a young teen named Jack Sawyer, who can save his dying mother only by retrieving a magical talisman. To find it, he must cross back and forth between our world and the frightening and dangerous landscape of its “twinner” counterpart.
