Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid Gets Gorgeous New Illustrated Edition

Prepare to see The Colorado Kid in a whole new way.

Stephen King’s best-selling mystery novel — and inspiration for the TV series Haven — is headed back to bookstores for the first time in 10 years, in a brand-new illustrated edition. The novel has been out of print for a decade; the re-release will feature 20 new interior illustrations by a stellar range of artists.

In The Colorado Kid, a rookie newspaperwoman learns the true meaning of mystery when she investigates a 25-year-old unsolved and very strange case involving a dead man found on an island off the coast of Maine. 

The novel was originally published in 2005, and served as a loose basis for Haven, the Syfy series which aired from 2010 to 2015.

King and Hard Case Crime, the imprint behind the new edition, have exclusively shared with Entertainment Weekly the new cover for The Colorado Kid, painted by Paul Mann, as well as a pair of eye-catching interiors. One note: The first of the illustrations below is by actress Kate Kelton, who starred in the third and fourth seasons of Haven. (The other by is by Mark Edward Geyer.)

The Colorado Kid’s new edition will publish June 4, and is available for pre-order.

Freeform To Develop Series Adaptation of Stephen King’s Joyland

Freeform is in the process of developing Joyland, a new series adaptation based on acclaimed author Stephen King’s mystery novel of the same name. Chris Peña (Jane the Virgin) and Cyrus Nowrasteh (The Stoning of Soraya M.) are set to co-write the show’s pilot script.

“We are honored to be working with Stephen King – a master storyteller who understands the importance of culturally embedded tales that resonate with audiences on a deeply personal level,” Freeform’s Executive Vice President of Programming and Development Karey Burke said. “We can’t wait for Joyland to become part of Freeform’s offerings and haunt our viewers as only Stephen can.”

Joyland is set in 1973 which follows the story of a college student named Devin Jones who takes on a summer job at Joyland, an amusement park in North Carolina.

IT Chapter Two Will Feature The Ritual of Chüd From The Stephen King Novel

Stephen King fans were thrilled last year when they were given an adaptation of one of King’s novels that exceeded expectations. It was a faithful adaptation of the novel but left out some of the more curious elements of the first half of the landmark text. However, word has now come that some weird elements of the novel will be included in the upcoming follow up.

Screenwriter Gary Dauberman has confirmed that the Ritual of Chüd will be included in the 2019 follow-up. In the novel, the ritual is way the Losers Club eventually defeated the title monster which involves a lot of really bizarre moments that are easier to do in a novel than on screen.

“The Ritual of Chüd is challenging, but it’s such an important component to the book that we had to address it. That stuff is difficult to balance, but because (director Andy Muschietti, producer Barbara Muschietti and I) worked with each other before, when I’m writing pages and all that stuff it becomes more of a conversation and less like, ‘Hey, here’s what I did.’ It’s sort of organic; it’s really kind of just chipping away at the stone and trying to find the most focused, accessible way into some of more metaphysical aspects of that book.”

Dauberman went on to explain that the Ritual of Chüd will try to be fully realized on screen. The ritual is described as “a battle of wills between the Losers Club and Pennywise, going as far as Pennywise and a member of the Club in a joke contest.”

The main cast of IT: Chapter 2 also includes James McAvoy (X-Men franchise, Split) as Bill, Bill Hader (Barry, Trainwreck) as Richie, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast) as Ben and James Ransone (Generation Kill) as Eddie, with Andy Bean (Here and Now) as Stanley Uris, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Teach Grant (Altered Carbon, Damnation) as Henry Bowers, Jess Weixler (The Son, Chained for Life) as Bill’s wife, Xavier Dolan (Boy Erased) as Adrian Mellon, Will Beinbrink (Queen of the South) as Tom Rogan and, of course, the return of Bill Skarsgård (Atomic Blonde) as the clown Pennywise.

The rest of the young cast of IT, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as young Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as young Ben, Jack Dylan Grazer (Shazam!) as young Eddie, Chosen Jacobs (Castle Rock) as young Mike and Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy) as young Stan will all be returning for IT: Chapter 2.

IT debuted in September of last year to the tune of $123.1 million on opening weekend, the highest opening weekend ever for a September release, for a fall release, and for a horror movie. It clocked in just $9 million behind Deadpool for the second-highest opening for an R-rated movie. The film earned over $700 million at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing horror movie of all time.

The second part of IT is written by Gary Dauberman from the book by Stephen King, and will be directed once again by Andy Muschietti. 

The sequel will hit theaters on September 6, 2019.

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: Beginnings: The Complete Graphic Novel Series

Enter once more the world of Roland Deschain—and the world of the Dark Tower…now presented in a stunning graphic novel form that will unlock the doorways to terrifying secrets and bold storytelling as part of the dark fantasy masterwork and magnum opus from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King.

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King’s iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a “gunslinger” charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world—a world that “moved on,” as they say. In this desolate reality—a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways—Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower.

Now, in the graphic novel series Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: Beginnings, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland’s troubled past and coming-of-age is revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, Beginnings is an extraordinary and terrifying journey into Roland’s origins—ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King’s modern literary classic The Dark Tower, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures merely hinted at in his blockbuster novels.

This boxed set includes the complete graphic novel series Beginnings: The Gunslinger Born, The Long Road Home, Treachery, The Fall of Gilead and The Battle of Jericho Hill. This title will be released on October 23, 2018.
