ATSK's Review of Advanced Reader's Copy: Orbit: Stephen King Comic

Sorry I've been away so long...... 

Release Date May 'll.  approx. 23 pages

The Orbit:  Stephen King comic begins with Stephen's near-fatal accident.  The comic explains how the accident happened at a point when King's life was going exceptionally well after he faced and conquered many of his own personal demons.  Orbit: Stephen King describes King's highs and lows in his personal life.  Some of the events that the comic focuses on are when his father abandoned the family, his damaging ear infections (which could have ended his life), meeting his wife Tabby, and his addiction to drugs and alcohol.  The writers of this comic peppered some of King’s poignant quotes throughout the text during different events that are described.  Overall the comic had a nice flow and recounted a lot of Mr. King’s life without losing too much time.  This book is great for the King collector in all of us.   

My personal thoughts on what I read in the comic:

I have to say when reading Orbit Stephen King I felt that King was meant to be here for all of us to enjoy his books.  There were events that could have prevented him from delivering such wonderful books to us, that it's just plain frightening!  On the other hand, he was placed in situations that made writing the stories he does possible.  In my humble opinion he and his books are a gift to the world.   He and his books changed me and my life in a profound way, which is why I feel so much is written about him including, but not limited to this biographic comic book.
