Stephen King and Joe Hill are Working on a Comic Book Together

By now you know that I am a huge fan of King’s comic books and Hill’s comic books. With this news, I am absolutely giddy! I may have found nerdvana with this. I will have a review up for the first issue as soon as I get my copy.

This is a big deal for King fans, Hill fans and comic book fans! Stephen King and Joe Hill are collaborating on a comic book together, called “Road Rage.” The first issue, “Throttle,” will be available for online purchase on February 15th, 2012 and there are details on the official website (click here) on how you can get your local comic shop to get a copy for you.

The comic is a translation of a 2009 short story that was written by King and Hill together “Throttle,” that was based on Richard Matheson’s “Duel.” In an interview with comicbookresources.com, Joe Hill recalled a summer when he was a kid in which he and his father watched the Steven Spielberg adaptation of “Duel” innumerable times. So it seemed natural for them to collaborate on the story. When asked about what it was like to work along side his father, Joe Hill had this to say

My dad is real loose. And he’s a horse. If he was a pitcher, he’d be the kind of guy who could go out and throw a hundred and forty pitches, still touch 90 on the gun by the end of the game, then come out three days later and pitch a few innings in relief. He keeps things fun and effortless and stripped down, and those things rub off, so the story was a breeze to write. Here I am, almost forty — I’m still constantly learning things about creativity and peace of my mind from my Dad.
