"The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambers's classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. It's a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this graphic-novel adaptation, I.N.J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make readers laugh and cry and tremble with fright"--
