King of the Hill

Man, there should maybe be “Blog Title” police to drop fines on people who come up with overly cutesy subjects for their blog entries… if there was, I’d owe some money for this one.

But moving past that, the big news today is that we announced today that we’ll be doing an adaptation of both Stephen King and Joe Hill‘s “Throttle” and the inspiration for that story, Richard Matheson‘s “Duel.” Specifics about our project can be found here, among other places. As the guy adapting both, I’m incredibly happy and fortunate to be working with these guys, from the authors themselves to Nelson Daniel, the artist, and Phil Noto and Tony Harris on covers. It’s nice and gratifying to be able to build a dream team of talent and draft myself onto the team as well. An extra nod to my pal Joe Hill for making this all come about in the first place. Joe and Steve wrote a great story, so it’s fun to be able to bring their body-count to life in comics. (I do also recommend the audiobook version of the story, since it comes with both “Throttle” and “Duel” and really brings the story to life in ways the comic won’t.

There will be more information and art to come on this one, but for now, how about a little bit extra that didn’t go out with the press release today, as a reward for coming here. The below image is the insignia for the biker gang in “Throttle,” as designed by Nelson Daniel. And it’s gonna be a temporary tattoo you can adorn your body with when issue 1 comes out, too.
