When "n' came out, it came out on the computer. It was collected in a book of short stories as well, and this collection does the story justice. Still, the graphic novel depiction of "n" is a beautiufl, beautiful thing. When you see the stones, for example, they seem sinister. They have this way of looking at you as you look at them, and they make youthink that something could indeed be wrong. The same can be said for the place itself. When art is added, a field becomes more than a field, having this look that makes you think of an accursed arena. It seems like there is something aobut it and then there are the things, the "proff," and that is creepy.
"n" also relies on characters to tell you the story and this is powered by some actions and dialog. Both are powerful in this tale and I really liked the way it came out here. I wanted to know if the men were mad and I wanted to see what could be happening. I saw something in one of their minds, too, and in the thing they thought could be.Read more ›
So the base of the story is Stephen King's N. its based on a structure similar to Stonehenge and how that is a gate that is holding some kind of demon from enter our dimension/reality. Its a really freaky story and from now on, I'm always going to have that idea on my mind that Stonehenge and all of these other monolithic sites are gateways into our reality. It is possible, we don't know what they were used for so it makes it a possibility.
The story focuses on the this monolithic site and how with certain people that visit it that see eight stones instead of seven become its caretakers and become obsessed with it and in the end it results with their suicide.
Overall, the art work is amazing and the story was interesting. Good read for the time around Halloween.
Based on the short story of the same name (published in the wonderful JUST AFTER SUNSET), STEPHEN KING'S N. is a faithful adaptation of Stephen King's story. (Oh, how I wish screenwriters would take a clue from comic book artists. Who are they to think they can improve upon the work of Stephen King? He's Stephen King, yo! Exhibit A: UNDER THE DOME.) Most of the short story is told in the form of case notes and an only partially finished manuscript; here, these scenes are translated into panels in which "N." meets with his psychiatrist Johnny Bonsaint and relays the story to him (and us!) in real time. From there begins Dr. Bonsaint's own descent into madness. We're also treated to an additional backstory about the field's origins (dating back to Andrew Ackerman), as well as its future in the hands of celebrity doctor (and childhood friend of Dr. Bonsaint and his sister Sheila) Charlie Keen.Read more ›

I thought it was more like a comic book. I wasn't very fond of this one. My grandson liked it better than I did.Published 13 days ago by St. Louis Sandy
Both one of the best comics I have ever read and one of the best Stephen King stories i've encountered. Would absolutely recommend.Published 23 days ago by Dekanah
Super good, very Lovecraftian. Well drawn and scripted for maximum creep. Bought and read in an hour, just couldn't put it away.Published 1 month ago by Bryant
Not at all what I thought it would be. A lot of repetition and the storyline wasn't all that interesting. I would not recommend this book to anyone.Published 1 month ago by Randall Apel
