A message from Stephen regarding 1408

Posted: June 19th, 2007 12:41:30 pm

It's a pleasure to be able to recommend 1408, the Dimension Pictures adaptation of my story. It stars John Cusack and opens this Friday. This is a genuinely disquieting movie--the damn thing gets under your skin and just CRAWLS there. For one thing, what could be more terrifying than a man haunted by The Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun?" I doubt if you'll hear much screaming in the theater (I could be wrong about that), but a lot of people are going to be sleeping with the lights on when it's over.

The end begins here with Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born #6, the penultimate chapter of the groundbreaking Marvel Comics limited series, adapting the classic Stephen King story. The Affiliation, a force of men gathered by Roland’s father, advance further into the Shaved Mountains, however unbeknownst to them, Farson and his Coffin Riders have lured them into a trap. Now, with Hambry’s oil powering the Old Ones’ weapons, the Affiliation stands to be wiped out unless Roland can get there in time. Writers Peter David and Robin Furth, and series artist Jae Lee and Richard Isanove bring you another issue of the acclaimed limited series that has the critics buzzing.

Richard George of IGN.com says “I’m mesmerized,” and calls Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born a “masterpiece”.

Luke Paton of SilverBulletComicbooks.com calls Jae Lee and Richard Isanove’s art “fantastic… Each panel is so meticulously detailed and beautifully rendered that you could just look at them all day.”

In the emotional aftermath of her baby’s sudden death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf and out to the loneliest stretch of Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a conch shack he has kept there for years. Em keeps up her running—barefoot on the beach, sneakers on the road—and sees virtually no one. This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences….

The Gunslinger Born #4 in stores May 2nd

Posted: May 1st, 2007 12:32:52 pm

The smash hit limited series exploring the early days of Stephen King's notorious gunslinger Roland (from the Dark Tower series of novels) continues this month, as Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #4 arrives in stores this Wednesday, May 2nd. Young Roland has met Susan Delgado and like many good times in his life, danger looms large...and dangerously close. The town of Hambry holds many secrets, but for Roland, the most intriguing new discovery is that of the equally enamored Susan. But will forces greater than both conspire to tear apart this blossoming young love?

The critics continue to laud praise upon this bold story, as ComicsShouldBeGood's Brian Cronin raved, "The control that David has over the dialogue in this work is expertly done. With the beautiful artwork of Jae Lee, it is almost like watching a stage play being performed for me, with the dialogue and the artwork mixing together wonderfully."

With each issue selling out at Diamond, and continued interest from the mainstream media, Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born is one of the most talked about series in years! For more information and art, please visit www.marvel.com/darktower
