The Little Green God of Agony has begun. Available exclusively on StephenKing.com, it's an adaptation of the short story by King, originally seen as the opener to Stephen Jones' 2011 anthology A Book of Horrors and included in Ellen Datlow's The Best Horror of the Year: Volume Four. The story is told from the point of view of a nurse hired by a paraplegic millionaire who wants to exorcise his pain.
Adapted and illustrated by Dennis Calero, the webcomic will have run in installments, with new pieces delivered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for eight weeks.
“I have been a huge Stephen King fan for as long as I can remember,” said Calero. “To be able to work on ANYTHING with him is an honor."
Here's the full synopsis of The Little Green God of Agony:
Katherine "Kat" MacDonald is an RN hired to care for wealthy client, Andrew Newsome, who has gone from doctor to doctor trying to find a quick cure for his lingering pain to no avail. She is convinced that he would overcome the injuries he sustained in an airplane crash but he is unwilling to endure the pain of physical therapy. In desperation, Newsome has hired a healer, Reverend Rideout, who promises to "expel" his pain.
The first installment is available today so go on and get reading!
