Marvel & Stephen King Unveil A First Look At The Next Chapter In The Dark Tower Epic

Marvel, in collaboration with Stephen King, is excited to release a first look at color art of the newest chapter in the Dark Tower series – Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1. Beginning in September 2014, New York Times Best-Selling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski and colorist Nick Filardi bring the action from Mid-World to our world as the epic series returns!

Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner marks another milestone for the graphic fiction sensation that’s captivated fans worldwide as the saga moves to the second volume of King’s magnum opus. And as the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City – old and new fans alike will experience the rich and vibrant world of The Dark Tower in new and interesting ways.

As this tale of urban crime opens, you’ll meet Eddie Dean as an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man gifted with the ability to open doors to other worlds. Can he survive family tragedy, a haunting addiction, and the deadly forces that conspire to stop him from challenging the Man in Black? Eddie faces trials and tribulations at every turn – and the badlands of Mid-World can’t hold a candle to the dangers of Brooklyn in the 1960s! Witness the story of a young man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life.

“The artistic team of Piotr Kowalski and Nick Filardi will take you on a bone-chilling visual journey into the depths of one man’s soul,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “Crafted to satisfy even the most experienced constant reader, but also created to be completely accessible for new readers, this series delivers all the drama, pathos, humor, and horror you’ve come to expect from master storyteller Stephen King.”

 A bold new chapter begins as the landmark series makes its historic return to comic shops this September in Stephen King’s Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1on sale September 3, 2014.

Stephen King Isn’t Afraid of The Big Bad Adaptation

enhanced-buzz-wide-28319-1403115836-30

The prolific and frequently adapted writer Stephen King has written an episode of CBS’ Under the Dome, but the series still diverges greatly from his original novel. As far as King is concerned, that’s part of the thrill of adaptation.

At 66, King is no stranger to adaptation: His novels have gotten the big-screen treatment time and again over the past several decades, from classics like 1976’s Carrie and 1980’s The Shining to more modern fare like 2007’s The Mist and the 2013 adaptation of Carrie. A film adaptation of King’s novel Cell, with a screenplay co-written by King, is due next year, and there is talk of new versions of It and The Stand, both of which already had TV miniseries adaptations.

But Under the Dome presents a unique challenge to King, who is more directly involved with the production than he has been with most other adaptations of his work. The way he explained it, that’s a mixed blessing.

Season 2 of Under the Dome premieres June 30 at 10 p.m. on CBS.

Marvel Reveals The Cover For Stephen King’s The Prisoner # 1

Marvel, in collaboration with Stephen King, is proud to announce the new chapter in the Dark Tower series – The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner. Beginning in September 2014, New York Times Best-Selling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski bring the action from Mid-World to our world as the epic series returns!

The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner marks another milestone for the graphic fiction sensation that’s captivated fans worldwide as the saga moves to the second volume of King’s magnum opus. And as the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City – old and new fans alike will experience the rich and vibrant world of The Dark Tower in new and interesting ways.

As this tale of urban crime opens, you’ll meet Eddie Dean as an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man gifted with the ability to open doors to other worlds.

Eddie faces trials and tribulations at every turn – and the badlands of Mid-World can’t hold a candle to the dangers of Brooklyn in the 1960s! Witness the story of a young man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life.

“To borrow some successful branding, this is the ‘All-New Marvel NOW’ version of The Dark Tower. As we now travel from The Gunslinger to The Drawing of The Three, we are refocusing our spotlight to explore the histories and events that led to the formation of the Ka-Tet that aided the gunslinger Roland Deschain on his quest to defeat the Man in Black and the Crimson King,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “But instead of encountering Eddie Dean later in his life, as you do in the novel, we zoom back to 1964 and meet him as a toddler, so while we are adapting the second novel, we’re weaving together events in a new way that will hopefully surprise and entertain everyone who has already read the book. We’re ‘assembling the Avengers’ of the Dark Tower universe, but Robin Furth, Peter David, and Piotr Kowalski are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.

A bold new chapter begins as the landmark series makes its historic return to comic shops on September 17, 2014 in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1.
