Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born Graphic Novel (save £7.00)

Found 14th Jan 2008
Brilliant set of books by Stephen King turned into a graphic novel. Ideal for comic fans!

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." With those words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King's Roland - an implacable gunslinger in search of the enigmatic Dark Tower, powering his way through a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic. Now, in a comic book personally overseen by King himself, Roland's past is revealed! Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, adapted by long-time Stephen King expert Robin Furth (author of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower: A Concordance") and scripted by "New York Times" bestseller Peter David, this series delves in depth into Roland's origins - the perfect introduction to this incredibly realized world; while long-time fans will thrill to adventures merely hinted at in the novels. Be there for the very beginning of a modern classic of fantasy literature! This book collects "Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born", numbered 1-7.

This is a great graphic novel in my opinion, I got it from Amazon before Christmas for the same price but I had to add something extra to get free postage. This deal is obviously better if you just want the book, voted hot.

I'd recommend these graphic novels - i'd recommend the books even more though. Absolutely fantastic writing on Stephen Kings part - love them!:thumbsup:

Ordered thanks - the audiobooks are also highly recommended.

Ordered it from Amazon for the same price overall, however as I have prime with them I get it sooner.

I have read all the books (spanning many years as each one was released) and loved them all. You need to read the first one to see if the style is something you like, but then you run the risk that you may just become hooked on this classic series.

Voted hot as I need a Dark Tower fix after the final book, and I havent read a comic (or Graphic Novel) of any sort in a long time :thumbsup:

Brilliant! Have ordered it. Loving play.com for books more and more these days.

You need to read the first one to see if the style is something you like

Funnily enough, I found the first book pretty slow-paced and not to my liking, but books 2-7 were a huge improvement. Personally I'd suggest sticking with the series past the first book and read the second or third book to see if you like it!

i think the second book was my favourite. I liked the first book and i think it shows the character of Roland really well, in preperation for the further books. I was completely hooked by the second book but i had to read them slowly as the other books in the series had not been written!!!

I really liked these books at the beginning but the last couple weren't that good. And the ending........jesus! four and a half thousand pages for the most unfulfilling awful ending i have ever seen.

For me I think the style stayed quite similar, and book 1 is a good indication of the way the story is told (though it has been a long time since I read this book :-) ). It's a bit of a departure from some of his other books, but I agree the series improved as it moved on. I think that this is in part due to the evolution of the project, i.e. the time it was written over and that King himself was learning and developing the characters and the world as he wrote each instalment. Then there is the possibility where (like me) you read a couple and develop an irrational attachment to the plot and seeing it through to the end. :thumbsup:

Talking of that, I guess the ending was always going to be controversial, given the author, but It was one I actually liked.

BTW. Mine arrived thismorning, and I have to say that it does look incredible. I'm hoping to get time to read some of it this w/e.
