The issue starts off with King’s accident back in 1999 and while King lies in the ditch we get his life story told. Since it’s told in a comic with only 23 pages it’s the shorter version we get but even so it gives the reader a good look into King’s live and how he became the well known writer he is today.
We’re told how his father left when he was a small boy, how King abused drugs for a long time, how Tabitha saved the manuscript of Carrie and a lot of other things that has happened to him throughout his life. We get to see how he met Tabitha and we see his kids. But still though, this is a short biography of King and a lot is left out. If you have read the big books about King and his life there isn’t anything new here but even so, I enjoyed reading it and it's an interesting way to tell King's story.
The comic is illustrated by Kent Hurlburt who's using a very sprawling style but I like it. I think it works well here and it gives the illustrations an extra edge that fits well for this comic. If you had asked me before this one I would have told you that it probably wouldn't be possible to tell King's story in comic format but it did and this is the proof of it.
