Exclusively on StephenKing.com, Web Comic of The Little Green God of Agony To Launch on Monday October 15th

The Little Green God of Agony, the first horror web comic content exclusive to www.stephenking.com will go live on October 15th, 2012. Stephen King’s short story, the opener of Stephen Jones’s  2011 anthology, A Book of Horrors, and included in Ellen Datlow’s The Best Horror of the Year, Volume Four, tells from the point of view of his doubting nurse the tale of a paraplegic millionaire who wants to exorcise his pain.  

Adapted by well-known comic artist Dennis Calero (co-creator of Xmen Noir and Devil Inside) the webcomic will run in serial installments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for eight weeks.

“I have been a huge Stephen King fan for as long as I can remember,” explained Calero. “To be able to work on anything with him is an honor.  And to make this announcement at New York Comic Con is icing on the cake!“

Here is a synopsis of the web comic, “Katherine “Kat” MacDonald is an RN hired to care for wealthy client, Andrew Newsome, who has gone from doctor to doctor trying to find a quick cure for his lingering pain to no avail. She is convinced that he would overcome the injuries he sustained in an airplane crash but he is unwilling to endure the pain of physical therapy. In desperation, Newsome has hired a healer, Reverend Rideout, who promises to “expel” his pain.”
