I'm a fan of Stephen King stories adapted by Marvel (The Dark Tower, especially) and this one is great! The mobisodes excellently portrayed OCD and mental breakdown at brilliantly, theatrically, and very realistically. The graphics were gritty, photo-realistic, and added an extra element of chaos, disorder, and the very image of a man (and woman) going crazy, slowly. The graphic novel adaptation, including visual representations of elements in the short story, not included in the mobisodes, captured all of this brilliantly, as well. I say BUY IT! It's a piece of art in and of itself to become a classic years down the road.

This was a great read. I started it one night before I went to sleep and I couldn't put it down. It was very well written and the art fit the story nicely. Being a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft myself I could tell that this novel was 100% inspired from his stories and is definite tribute to the man. It was almost as if Lovecraft wrote this story himself, I was just waiting for Ry'leh to show up in all in non-euclidean glory housing the destroyer of all mortal souls, Lord Cthulhu.

It all starts when a patient drifts in and reluctantly begins telling his story. He tells the doctor he doesn't want to drag him in because he knows how it will drag him in and eventually crush him. The doctor sees this as part of a delusion, however, and tells the man to go on. So he tells him about a place where there are stones you can see and count that correctly numbered 7. Still, when you eithe rlook the wrong way or you photo this, it comes out differently. A stone is missing. This leads to other, more serious implications, and to the notion that this means something. It also leads to deaths and to the doctor needing to know. when the doctor goes there he sees something, too, and what he sees is troubling because the truth is an oddity in the making.

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.

Wow, can I just say Alex Maleev did an AMAZING job illustrating this graphic novel. The art work is really realistic and the "evidence" art work was so real looking. It freaked me a little. But that just made the story more real.

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.

Tucked away off an inconspicuous dirt road Motton, Maine - right on the eastern bank of the Androscoggin River and not far from the town of Chester's Mill (which also seems to be experiencing more than its fair share of supernatural activity as of late!) - sits an ominous patch of land known by the locals as "Ackerman's Field." Named for its earliest recorded owner, Ackerman's Field is home to a mysterious, Stonehenge-like rock formation consisting of eight - or maybe seven, depending on one's point of view - giant boulders, in the center of which exists a portal. A gate. A rip in the very fabric of the universe. On the other side? Unspeakable evil, straining to break through. Only the keeper of the field - the person who, through the simple (and oftentimes unwitting) act of bearing witness, activates this "thinny" - can keep the monsters at bay. In August 2006, this person became Nathan N. Nance.

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.
