Check out some preview art of the upcoming comic "adaptation" of Stephen King's DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER BORN! Co-written by King, Peter David & Robin Furth with gorgeous art by JAE LEE (pencils) and Richard Isanove (color)! Issue 1 comes out in February by Marvel Comics. Its the first of a seven issue mini-series, with a total of 30 issues for the entire series/story itself. Says Jae Lee, "This seven issue miniseries is not a strict adaptation of Wizard and Glass. It’s part of a larger, ongoing story. So the first miniseries is just the beginning. The first story arc is an expansion of the Wizard and Glass that fits within the frame of the prose novels. There are obviously story elements that will be familiar to fans of the Dark Tower as well as content that has yet to be explored."

I'm looking forward to this!

It should be awesome! I'm excited about it both as a Dark Tower/King fan as well as a comic book retailer.

Everything's sweet, but don't care for Alain, He's suppose to be the tallest, fair hair blue eyes.. and he looks a bit like uncle fester...

Jonas is spot fucking on though..

Bert might be a bit too lou diamond phillips looking..

and roland looks good.. but not as lean as I imagined..

Anyway, despite the retelling of the Mejies storyarc first... Hopefully it'll rock..
