Report The Dark Tower in Marvel Posted February 12, 2007 While I haven't read Stephen King's original series I have to say that this first issue of The Dark Tower: The Gunsliger Born" was excellent. They really put together the perfect team in Peter David, Jae Lee, Richard Isanove and Robin Furth. It's been a long time since I've picked up a comic that melded story and art so well. It had a great pace and I'm really excited for the rest of the series. Has anyone read the novels? King is generally very on and off for me.
