FIRST LOOK: Marvel and Stephen King team up on The Dark Tower: The Drawing of theThree

July 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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!

THE DARK TOWER: 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 THE DARK TOWER: THE DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1 on sale September 3rd.

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….
