Preview: ‘Sleeping Beauties’ #1 And A Sleeping Sickness That Only Affects Women. All But One.

by Olly MacNamee

It’s certainly beginning to feel like a return to some kind of normal for many who can get back into stores and start picking up floppies on a regular basis once again with more and more publishers putting comics back onto shelves. One such returning publisher is IDW, who have a new series, based on the novel by Stephen King and Owen King and adapted by Rios Youers, Alison Sampson and Triona Farrell. Sleeping Beauties #1 is out today, Wednesday 24th June in comic stores and digitally.

“A strange sleeping sickness, known as Aurora, has fallen over the world, and strangest of all, it only affects women. In the small town of Dooling, a mysterious woman has walked out of the woods; she calls herself Eve and leaves a trail of carnage behind her. More mysterious: she’s the only woman not falling asleep.”
