The Dark Tower: The gunslinger born....
« on: February 08, 2007, 05:39:13 PM »
WOW! The first issue of this seven issue (Maybe more) series was just flat awesome. There was more drama, action, and intrigue in this one issue than most comics do in a full story line.

Not only that but the art work is just jaw dropping good, also the amount of information they were able to squeeze into one issue was just great. Do your self a favor and pick this up NOW.

From what I've seen and heard The Dark Tower series seems to be the only Stephen King book series I might be interested in reading.

This is one of the best comics I've read in the past decade.
Crow: Well believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

From TV.Com:

"J.J. Abrams erecting Dark Tower?
By Colin Mahan - TV.com

Lost maven in talks to bring Stephen King epic to life.

The Lost creator is reportedly in talks to possibly produce and/or direct a film version of Stephen King's epic book series The Dark Tower. A Tower movie has been rumored since the first novel was released in 1982, but the epic scope of the project has hindered many efforts.


The fantasy/Western book series spans seven novels as it tells the story of the last gunslinger--Rolande, a knight who protected the fabled land of Gilead--who wanders a postapocalyptic alternate universe in a quest to destroy the Dark Tower and the evil that dwells within it. Along the way, he collects a ragtag band of followers from various dimensions and time periods.

According to Hollywood Reporter, King is hoping a filmmaker with a strong vision can help the process along. The author is a self-professed fan of Lost and Abrams."

That is really the best way to put it...

The comic was amazing....and there are a lot more coming! I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest!

I think (but could be wrong) that this was the first time in comic book history that they opened up comic book stores at midnight on the date of the comic's release.
