| A message from Marvel|
April 4th, 2007 12:31:20 pm
The first chapter of Stephen King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower, arrived last month in graphic fiction form from Marvel Comics to great response across the country. Despite an incredibly healthy overprint, the demand for this issue has been greater than anticipated and the issue has sold out. But fear not, King fans, Marvel is pleased to announce that we will be going back to press on the first issue, with a brand new cover by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.
Following the adventures of young Roland, Stephen King's Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born continues to win over fans both new and old. Says Quint of AintItCool.com, "Get to the comic store and pick this up!" Issue 3 of the series will be in stores on April 4th.
Please note, the first printings of this title may still be available at the retailer level. To find a comic shop near you, call 1-888-COMICBOOK.

Picking up from last issue's startling cliffhanger, DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER BORN #2 keeps the action going as well as gives readers their first glimpse at some of the epic's most popular- and important- characters. Learn the fate of Roland and his ka-tet as they head East to avoid the scheming of Marten, fear the introduction of the deadly Big Coffin Hunters, and meet the young woman who will always be in Roland's heart- Susan. But it is the first terrifying glimpse of the deadly Crimson King that will truly haunt you after reading! All of this, plus a map of the Barony of Mejis, a short story describing the creation of Maerlyn's Rainbow, and an open letter from the Master himself, Stephen King!
