Sleeping Beauties Vol. 1 is the first of two full-color hardcover graphic novels based on Stephen King and Owen King’s Novel

The dreams and nightmarish realities of Stephen King and Owen King’s bestselling novel captivate in IDW‘s upcoming Sleeping Beauties Vol. 1, the first of two full-color hardcover graphic novels courtesy of author Rio Youers, artist Alison Sampson, and colorist Triona Tree Farrell, releasing April 20th.

Sleeping Beauties Vol. 1 imagines a world where women have sunken into a deep, cocooned slumber, their dreams taking them to an idyllic other place. They can only wake if disturbed, which results in violent, feral behavior. Meanwhile, the men have inherited the Earth, their society devolving in to barbarism. Provocative and absorbing, Sleeping Beauties is a gripping dark fantasy of gender dynamics, individuality, and toxic masculinity.
