The GN wiki last edited by pikahyper on 08/11/13 11:55PM View full history

In a run-down amusement park on a desolate beach in New Hampshire, thirteen-year-old Jack Sawyer is about to learn some hard truths—about his father's death, about why he and his mother are on the run from his sinister uncle Morgan, and about the real nature of the mysterious realm Jack once called the Daydreams. Now, with help from his newfound friend Speedy Parker, this young man will reclaim his identity as Travellin' Jack and make his first foray back into the Territories to retrieve the magical Talisman, an object of immense cosmic significance. Yet even more important to Jack, the Talisman holds the key to saving his mother's life. In the Territories, where monsters lurk, evil watches, an an unbelievably precious prize awaits, Jack embarks upon a desperate quest to fulfill a destiny he never sought, but cannot escape.

The Talisman: The Road of Trials comprises issues 0 through 5 of the thrilling comic book series and features original, never-before-seen material, including interviews and early sketches. Be warned: Once you've seen the Talisman, nothing will ever be the same.

Adapted from the Stephen King/Peter Straub novel by Robin Furth.
