November 26, 2008 – Best-selling author Dean Koontz is bringing a brand new story to comics, and Keith Champagne is the writer tapped to make it happen.
As announced recently, the five-issue comic book series Nevermore is based on an outline by Koontz and will be published by Dabel Brothers Publishing starting in February. Based on characters and ideas by Koontz, who has more than 350 million copies of his novels sold worldwide, the comic will feature art by Andy Smith with a story written by Champagne about searching for a lost love across parallel earths.
While Koontz has dabbled in comics before with the graphic novel In Odd We Trust, which focused on a character from the author’s novels, and Frankenstein: Prodigal Son, an adaptation of his book by the same name, Nevermore is an original story developed specifically for comics by Koontz.
Newsarama talked to Champagne about how he got involved the project with Koontz and what it’s like taking a best-selling author’s ideas and putting them in comic form.
