The official graphic novel adaptation of the horror novel by Stephen King and Owen King concludes in this haunting interpretation of the chilling, timely bestseller. The mysterious plague known as Aurora has blanketed the world, and, to the men, all but a handful of sleep-deprived women seem trapped—cocooned—in seemingly endless slumber. In reality, their minds have been transported to a strange, utopic dream world. It’s a world where small-town sheriff Lila Norcross and the other women can build their own society. And from which they might not want to wake. In the real world of Dooling, West Virginia, Lila’s husband, beleaguered prison psychiatrist Clint Norcross, is struggling. He’s trying to protect the woman called Eve Black from the ill-thought-out actions of increasingly desperate men. But Eve, as the only woman capable of waking up, has her own plans: a test with global consequences. A test Clint will have to pass if he ever hopes to see his wife again. Collects Sleeping Beauties issues #6-10, by writer Rio Youers (The Forgotten Girl) and artist Alison Sampson (Winnebago Graveyard), from the novel by Stephen King (The Institute, The Stand) and Owen King (Intro to Alien Invasion).
