Now you can buy Walter Simonson’s Lawnmower Man: Artist’s Edition Portfolio and check out his wonderful adaptation of King's story.

I drew a 21 page adaptation of Stephen King's short story, The Lawnmower Man in 1981. I did the pictures; King wrote the words. I put us in that order because the story was done 'Marvel-style'. I drew the pencils from the prose short story, the pages were sent to King, and he wrote the words from the art. I never dealt directly with King myself (regretfully ), but he did an outstanding job, adding just enough to the visualization of the story to accommodate the tale's new format. I thought the entire enterprise worked extremely well.
