Graphic Novel Recasts Humpty Dumpty as a Horror Story

IDW Publishing will release a graphic novel to accompany the 3-D horror movie, Humpty Dumpty. Follow this link to watch a trailer for the upcoming comic.

Here’s a synopsis of the scary storyline: “Two backwoods redneck brothers are confronted with a dangerous egg-shaped creature whose mother they torture and kill for fun. Half-human, half-alien, Humpty Dumpty exacts his bloody, murderous rage on the brothers in an unforgettable story of revenge.”

According to Wikipedia, the original nursery rhyme that made Humpty Dumpty famous started as a riddle. The classic story was first published in the 1811 title, Gammer Gurton’s Garland. (Via Dread Central)
