Stephen King once said that Survivor Type was a story that could not be filmed. An no wonder! It's. . . well, it's. . . HAVE YOU READ IT? Okay, then you understand.
Max Miller at artagem.com agrees it might be too graphic for film, but it's ripe for a graphic novel treatment. He's completed 65 pages of a Survivor Type graphic novel. Miller told me:
A little over a year and a half ago I completed a 65 page graphic novella based off of Stephen King’s short story “Survivor Type,” about a surgeon named Richard Pine who winds up marooned on a little spit of an island with no food and is forced to begin eating his own body to stay alive. It’s a very grisly little piece and it really stood out to me when I first read it, back when I was sixteen.This is reposted with permission from www.artagem.com
