The Dark Tower: The Wind Through The Keyhole. Art pages by Jae Lee

February 23rd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Wow, you wait years for exciting Stephen King news, then two stories come at one. As all you Dark Tower fans will know, we are merely two months from The Dark Tower book (4.5 if you like) The Wind Through The Keyhole… and while we all wait with baited breath, early collector’s editions are now shipping from Grant Books for those who can afford the price tag.

These special editions feature art work from The Dark Tower comic artist Jae Lee. And we have some of that art here for you to look at. These are lifted from the first 5 pages of the book.

Here’s the press release:


We join Roland and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. As they shelter from the screaming wind and snapping trees, Roland tells them not just one strange tale, but two – and in doing so sheds fascinating light on his own troubled past.

In his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt ridden year following his mother’s death, Roland is sent by his father to a ranch to investigate a recent slaughter. Here Roland discovers a bloody churn of bootprints, clawed animal tracks and terrible carnage – evidence that the ‘skin-man’, a shape shifter, is at work. There is only one surviving witness: a brave but terrified boy called Bill Streeter.

Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, ‘The Wind Through The Keyhole.’ ‘A person’s never too old for stories,’ he says to Bill. ‘Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.’


These Limited Editions are embellished with 6 Full-Color and 11 Black & White illustrations by award winning artist Jae Lee. Jae is best known to Stephen King fans as artist for the Dark Tower Graphic Novels,

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
