    Default THE TALISMAN comic series - Official Announcement

    DEL REY ANNOUNCES CREATIVE TEAM ON STEPHEN KING AND PETER STRAUB’S THE TALISMAN

    NEW YORK, NY – February 2, 2009 – Del Rey, an imprint of Ballantine Books at the Random House Publishing Group, announced today the adaptor and artist on the comic book and graphic novel versions of The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub.

    The book will be penciled and inked by Tony Shasteen, who has been an illustrator since 1995. His clients have included Coca-Cola, Nascar, Hasbro, DC Comics, Wildstorm, Top Cow, Dark Horse, Virgin, Boom Studios, and Image Comics, among many others. Tony illustrated Image Comic’s The Occult Crimes Taskforce (The O.C.T.), co-created by David Atchison and Rosario Dawson. Film rights to The O.C.T. are in development with Dimension Films.

    It will be scripted by Robin Furth, who co-writes Marvel’s bestselling Dark Tower comics taking place in King’s Dark Tower Universe. The Gunslinger Born – the first of the Dark Tower series – was nominated for both an Eisner and a Harvey award. Robin has written “Satana and The Electric Pentacle” for Marvel’s Legion of Monsters and has adapted Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Lords of Avalon series to comic book form. She worked as Stephen King’s research assistant between 2000 and 2004 and continues to do freelance work for the Master of Horror.

    Lettering and project management will be handled by Dabel Brothers Publishing. The first issue of the monthly comic is planned for early fall 2009.

    Originally published in 1984, The Talisman is the story of a young teen named Jack Sawyer, who can save his dying mother only by retrieving a magical talisman. To find it he must cross back and forth between our world and the frightening and dangerous landscape of its “twinner” counterpart. Both The Talisman and its sequel, Black House, are in print with Ballantine Books. Television rights to The Talisman are under development by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy.

    ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

    Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

    Peter Straub is the author of 17 novels which have been translated into more than 20 languages. He has won numerous awards for his work, including the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, for Koko.

    ABOUT DEL REY:

    Del Rey Books (http://www.delreybooks.com) was founded in 1977 as an imprint of Ballantine Books, a division of the Random House Publishing Group, under the guidance of the renowned Judy-Lynn del Rey and her husband, Lester del Rey. Del Rey publishes the best of modern fantasy, science fiction, and alternate history. No stranger to comics, Del Rey launched Del Rey Manga in 2004 in conjunction with Japanese publisher Kodansha, and quickly began to acquire original graphic novel projects as well. Current and upcoming projects include a four-color graphic novel developed with pop singer Avril Lavigne, Make 5 Wishes; the graphic novel In Odd We Trust, by Dean Koontz and Queenie Chan; the first-ever graphic novel set in the world of Terry Brooks' Shannara universe, Dark Wraith of Shannara; original manga starring Marvel characters in X-Men: Misfits and Wolverine: Prodigal Son; and a four-color original graphic novel set in the Outlander universe, scripted by author Diana Gabaldon herself.

    I don't know how happy I am Furth is writing it, though.

    Now I must begin the debate about getting all of the variants. This comic stuff is starting to add up to some bigger bucks than I'd originally intended . . .

    I am glad to hear that they have a tentative release in sight, but like Dags, I'm not sure how thrilled I am about Furth scripting. But she did do a pretty damn good job with The Gunslinger Born, which was also an adaptation, so it might be that the new material just isn't her strong suit. She's not bad with good material, I just havent seen a lot of that in Treachery. I just hope to hell they don't use that annoying narrator "voice" they've used throughout the DT comics.

    I'm also pretty glad that Marvel doesnt have their hands on this one. I'd like to see a different publisher's take.

    I am with Dags and Aaron in having a bit of trepidation over Furth as writer. I will give her the benefit of the doubt until I see an actual issue, but I will be very harsh in my criticism should she deviate from the text material all that much. If she sticks to adapting and not re-writing it could be great. Otherwise, not so much. I'm looking forward to finding out.

    Ooh, i can't wait for this. I had a blast reading The Talisman, it'll be exciting to see it in comic form.

    Would it be reasonable to hope that they would turn its sequel, Black House, into a comic as well?

    Just an opinion but, Robin has done pretty well so far in the Gunslinger series (and I am not a comic kind of guy) and coupled with her work as SK's stenographer (sic) and DT biographer, if the story is told in a "DT" context we could very well be in for a treat.

    Of course we could also get royally F**cked but, I'm for giving her the opportunity!!

    BLACK HOUSE is "Da Bomb" and should have somehow been a DT book IMHO!!

    I think we could create one as a link to the other in situations like this.

    I can understand wanting comic folks to see it but the thread could be a simple re direct.

    My main concern, actually, is that she is going to be scripting it rather than just condensing existent story into issues, as she did with Gunslinger Born. Scripting is an entirely different monster. I am not sure how Del Ray does their scripts, but since they havent got a huge background in comics there is a good chance they are going to let her script it they way that she likes, which is the Marvel "plot-first" style. That style is great for the art, but not so great for the story-telling side. But then again, she doesnt have any experience writing "full script" comics in the DC style, so I would be worried if she tried that, too, as it can be a complicated method of telling the story; much more cinematic. So since I am worried either way, I am just going to put my faith in the editors and hope for the best.

    Cool. Basically, I was talking about the same thing as Matt. One would be a redirect to the other. I think we can keep the discussion in the Comic Tower, and put the redirect in the news forum.
