Gallery 13 To Publish Eleven Graphic Novels Based On Stephen King‘s Dark Tower Novels

Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President and Publisher of Gallery Books announced today that Gallery 13 will publish eleven graphic novels based on Stephen King‘s series of novels The Dark Tower.

Marvel Comics first published The Dark Tower series of comic books, based on the Stephen King novels, with Peter David, Robin Furth and Jae Lee back in 2007 but now Marvel has lost the rights to publish Dark Tower comic books to Simon And Shuster’s graphic novel imprint Gallery 13.

The acquisition of publishing rights includes five prequel works focusing on Roland Deschain of Gilead’s coming-of-age and told in chronological order, now officially titled Beginnings: The Gunslinger Born (Book #1), The Long Road Home (Book #2), Treachery (Book #3), The Fall of Gilead (Book #4), The Battle of Jericho Hill (Book #5); and the six-part comic adaptation of the 1982 bestselling novel The Gunslinger: The Journey Begins (Book #1), The Little Sisters of Eluria (Book #2), The Battle of Tull (Book #3), The Way Station (Book #4), The Man in Black (Book #5), and Last Shots (Book #6).

Creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, these official graphic novels are illustrated by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Dark Tower expert Robin Furth, and scripted by Hulk‘s Peter David, serving as an introduction to Stephen King’s classic The Dark Tower for new readers, and giving longtime fans adventures merely hinted at in his novels. And you know it’s going to be better than the film.

Gallery 13 will be publishing the Beginnings prequel graphic novels every two weeks starting with The Gunslinger Born on August 14, 2018. The Gunslinger novel adaptation will publish in Spring 2019.

“I’m delighted to see my stories in this exciting format, where they can reach new readers,” said Stephen King.
