‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ Receives Comic Book Treatment

Fans of Hunter S. Thompson, get ready to hyperventilate from joy! Comic book artist Troy Little is adapting Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream for the graphic novel format, reports GalleyCat.

The official press release gives a brief synopsis of the project, stating:

The much-beloved Fear and Loathing, subtitled "A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream," follows Thompson’s alter-ego Raoul Duke on the mother of all Vegas benders, as he and his attorney Dr. Gonzo cover a motorcycle race, crash a drug-enforcement convention, and rack up obscenely large room-service bills, all while dosed to the gills on a truly spectacular assortment of mind-altering substances.

The comic version of Fear and Loathing will be published through IDW Publishing’s imprint, Top Shelf Productions, and will hit shelves in October 2015.

I just don't think you can top what Ralph Steadman accomplished with the original.
