Hardback Publication Date: 08/01/2019

 
The complete graphic novel prequel series Stephen King's The Dark Tower: Beginnings-- now collected in a beautiful hardcover omnibus. The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King's iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a "gunslinger" charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world--a world that "moved on," as they say. In this desolate reality--a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways--Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower.

Now, in this graphic novel omnibus collection of five books originally published by Marvel Comics and overseen by Stephen King himself, the untold story of Roland's past is finally revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, these five prequel graphic novels (The Gunslinger Born; The Long Road Home; Treachery; The Fall of Gilead; The Battle of Jericho Hill) delve in depth into Roland's origins--ultimately serving as the perfect introduction to Stephen King's modern literary classic The Dark Tower for new readers, while long-time fans will thrill to adventures merely hinted at in his blockbuster novels.
