Okay, sure that was a bad title. I loved Dark Tower. Seems like people either do or they don't. Not a whole in between. As much as I love this comic, I feel it's not a complete representation. It's still the back story in Book IV. But since I was kinda bummed when Book VII ended, I'll take whatever Dark Tower material I can get. And they are doing a great job expanding on the story, filling in the gaps. So I definitely say read the books (or least check out the audio books).
The smash hit limited series exploring the early days of Stephen King’s notorious gunslinger Roland (from the Dark Tower series of novels) continues this month, as Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #4 arrives in stores this Wednesday, May 2nd. Young Roland has met Susan Delgado and like many good times in his life, danger looms large…and dangerously close. The town of Hambry holds many secrets, but for Roland, the most intriguing new discovery is that of the equally enamored Susan. But will forces greater than both conspire to tear apart this blossoming young love?
The critics continue to laud praise upon this bold story, as ComicsShouldBeGood’s Brian Cronin raved, “The control that David has over the dialogue in this work is expertly done. With the beautiful artwork of Jae Lee, it is almost like watching a stage play being performed for me, with the dialogue and the artwork mixing together wonderfully.”
With each issue selling out at Diamond, and continued interest from the mainstream media, Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born is one of the most talked about series in years! For more information and art, please visit www.marvel.com/darktower .
