Suntup Editions Firestarter Covers Collection Print By Michael Whelan

Last month, Suntup Editions introduced their first of two spectacular cover art prints signed by artist Michael Whelan, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. 

They are now delighted to reveal the Firestarter Limited Edition Cover as the second of their Whelan additions to The Covers Collection.

Published by Phantasia Press in 1980, the same year as the novel’s wide release, the limited edition of Firestarter features Charlie exhibiting her pyrokinesis power at full blast. This gorgeous painting predates the movie version by 4 years. Whelan used his niece Laina as his model, but many fans have commented on the girl’s similarity to Drew Barrymore.  The cover art for this edition so impressed Stephen King at the time that he personally recommended Whelan as the artist for the Donald M. Grant edition of The Gunslinger.

These prints are hand-signed by Michael Whelan, exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection. Limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Suntup Editions Announces Firestarter By Steven Stroud Covers Edition

Suntup Editions is pleased to present Firestarter by Steven Stroud. In this version of the cover art from Firestarter, the eyes are colored blue. If you look at the dust jacked on the book copy, the eyes are green.

The reason for this is that when Steven Stroud was creating this painting, there was no information provided as to the color of Charlie’s eyes. Stephen King thought that green would go well with the flames. It was later discovered that the eye color was described as blue in the text. So they were changed for the paperback edition. The only version of the original painting that exists has blue eyes, because the version with the green eyes was painted over.

These prints are hand-signed by Steven Stroud, and the first 20 include an original Remarque, which are already pre-sold to print subscribers.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide.

Large Size: 16″ x 24″

Small Size: 11″ x 17″

Publication Date: November 1, 2017

Available for Pre-Order: October 15, 2017

TNT Developing Sequel To Stephen King’s Firestarter Called The Shop

Firestarter_[front_cover]

A Stephen King-inspired series is headed to TNT. The cable network is developing The Shop, a sequel to King’s 1980 bestseller Firestarter. The drama centers on the insidious agency responsible for kidnapping and attempting to exploit the psychokinetic powers of a young girl named Charlie McGee in the original story.

Now it’s 20 years later and Charlie has been tracked down by one of The Shop’s former members, Henry Talbot, who introduces her to a group of people with their own unique abilities. From the announcement: “It turns out The Shop is very much alive, bigger and badder than ever, and its dark experiments are unleashing terrifying new entities on the world. It’s now up to Talbot, Charlie and the rest of the team to find The Shop and destroy it for good.”

The project is written by Robbie Thompson (Supernatural) and produced by James Middleton (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Jaime Paglia (Eureka) and Thompson.
