There are few writers who have had as big of an effect on the state of modern fiction as Stephen King. One of the best-selling authors of all time, King has undoubtedly left his mark on the literary and cinematic worlds with his many novels and their adaptations, most recently with the release of It.

​But King has fans even outside of the movie and book scenes, which is why we've compiled some must-read books for his followers that want to dig into some fiction of the four-color variety. In SYFY WIRE's latest 7 Essential video, we've gathered the seven horror series you need to check out if you're a King fan, from works by illustrators he liked, to books by his son, and even one he had a hand in himself.

There are ghosts, gunslingers, gore, and much more waiting for you in the pages of these comics, so don't be afraid, watch the video and head straight for your local comic shop to get your scare on.
