    I suppose what I’m saying here is that if you like scary stories, you oughtta like this comic book. It’s very rare to find a horror comic that actually manages to have you jumping at shadows and turning on an extra light or two when you make that final trip to the bathroom before bed. With its beautiful illustration and unsettling story, Stephen King’s N is such a comic book. Read Full Review

    N. shares a lot of elements with the hit television show LOST, which makes sense considering that the writers are huge Stephen King fans. King, via Guggenheim, taps into our nature to seek answers to the unexplained while also exploring our inherent fear of mental illness. Whether you check out the original novel, the webisodes, or this comic adaptation, I doubt you'll be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Like Marvel's other Stephen King adaptations, the creators involved are top notch and that skill translates here. Horror is a very tough genre to do effectively in comics and this issue falters in places because of the static nature of the medium, but Guggenheim and Maleev create tension through N.'s words and how he reacts to what he encounters to get across the frightening elements of the story. It's a great use of a character to stand in for the reader and allow him or her to experience the events of a comic through said character. Read Full Review
