Marvel Releases Stephen King Story

Marvel finally releases its Stephen King is writing a book for us story. Since I found Marvel's strange passive-aggressive strategy concerning news of this project more interesting than the project itself, I'm not really sure what to say. I still find the press release a bit coy. The word "adapted" will probably concern some readers despite other more straight-forward statements about King's contribution. Where and how this ties into the prose series could be the kind of difference that shows up in an extra zero on the end, so some hedging about that is expected. In a way, the only bigger news of this kind would by J.K. Rowling shifting one of her canonical books into graphic novel form, although it's the details in its execution that are going to make the difference in how well it goes over.
