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 ›
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 ›

A very good rendition of the story! An interesting media choice that seems to open the potential for the story to return and frighten the most hardened of loyal readersPublished 3 months ago by ResqMD
