    In more “thing becomes other thing” news, Sleeping Beauties, the more-than-700-page fantasy novel that Stephen King wrote with his son, Owen, is being adapted into a 10-part comic book series. The novel imagines a world in which all the women in the world except one have come down with a disease that puts them to sleep in gauzy cocoons (if you try to wake them up, they turn violent, which, fair.) The novel is already being developed as a TV series on AMC. #content!
