On the heels of the recently announced DC Comics and Invincible “motion comics,” Marvel is expected to reveal a similar initiative today at Comic-Con: It will adapt a never-before-released Stephen King short story as an animated series.
This is the “Marvel to the Nth Degree” announcement the publisher has been teasing: The story, called “N,” comes from King’s upcoming short-story collection Just After Sunset.
The Wall Street Journal reports the 25-episode series will be distributed online and via mobile channels in advance of the book’s Nov. 11 release. Beginning Monday episodes will be released daily, five times a week, through Aug. 29. iTunes also will sell pass for all of the two-minute episodes for $3.99.
This is the fourth venture between King and Marvel: The publisher previously has released two miniseries based on his Dark Tower books, and a 30-issue adaptation of The Stand debuts early next year.
You can see a teaser video for “N” after the break.
