Format: Hardcover
The Little Sisters run has been a high point in the Dark Tower comics. My enthusiasm for these visual companions to the novels had waned over the last couple of arcs as the series explored Roland's "lost years," the time between the end of his Wizard and Glass flashback and the first Dark Tower book, The Gunslinger. I was initially excited by the prospect of seeing events only partially described in the books, like the Battle of Jericho Hill. The problem has been that, as the comics drift farther away from original King material, writer Robin Furth's voice becomes more prominent than King's. Based on the short story from Everything's Eventual, Little Sisters brings back the charm and familiarity of the first couple Dark Tower arcs.

You'll find some of King's lines from the short story; you'll recognize, and sometimes be floored by, the representations of the Slow Mutants, the little doctors, and the Sisters and their pavilion. This run also presents some of the most shocking gore and violence of the entire series, as the Little Sisters story is one of the purest moments of horror in Dark Tower fiction. Although the series has not yet reached the first Dark Tower novel, Little Sisters brings it to the doorstep. We're now once again firmly entrenched in Stephen King material, and the Battle of Tull from The Gunslinger is up next. Marvel's illustrators have done an overall amazing job adapting the Dark Tower into graphic novel form, and from the looks of the Little Sisters of Eluria, they will not disappoint as they wade back into well-known, well-loved King territory.

This graphic novel is probably the best adaptation of Stephen King's Roland story, and is definitely the most creepy and horrific. It follows king's short story very well, and the artistry is excellent! There's a lot of violence and gore, and the drawings live up to the horror of the original story. I have gotten a lot of enjoyment out of this entire series, but this one tops all of the others. Hopefully, the writers and artists can keep up the good work they have been doing, and giving all of the Stephen King fans a visual treat, and a pictorial glance into the Dark Tower story.

I'm a big Stephen King/Dark Tower fan. I've been collecting the Dark Tower Series comics since they launched, they do justice to the novels, quite possibly the best part of these books is the back section with the history of the worlds, they really open your eyes to whats going around. Even if you're a purist of the sort that doesn't want to read comics these are worth picking up just for the back section.

I love Stephen King so when I discovered that he would not be writing the graphic novels relating to "The Dark Tower" series, I was a bit skeptical. I'm sorry I doubted you Robin Furth and company. I purchased the first dark Tower Graphic issues and stopped purchasing them as I found them difficult to locate (could not find local comic stores)as individual graphic issues. So I started purchasing the Graphic Novels (for those that are not aware, there are several issues comprising an individual story directly correlating to "The Dark Tower" story that come out every few months and once that series has been completed, the issues are compiled into a hardcover Graphic Novel). I started buying the completed Graphic Novels when "Treachery" was available and have been buying them since. The stories and background information is incredible not to mention the artwork. If you are even remotely interested in Stephen King's The Dark Tower" series of novels, these graphic novels are a must!

Format: Hardcover
There are countless bone-chilling creatures in Mid-World, but few are as creepy as the vampire nuns. Yes, I said vampire nuns.

Adapted from one of Stephen King's short stories, the graphic novel "Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, Vol. 2 - The Little Sister of Eluria" is a enduringly horrific, eerie story. Not only does it tap in every fear you've ever had about a hospital, but it brings back a lot of King's visceral, earthy horror into the comic books. And it has vampire nuns.

While exploring the abandoned town of Eluria, Roland is suddenly attacked a band of slow mutants. He wakes in a vast tent filled with hospital beds, being tended by the beautiful Sister Jenna. These are the Little Sisters of Eluria, but despite their habits and wimples, they don't serve the Man Jesus. Instead, they have a red rose.

And it doesn't take long for Roland to see what happens to those the Little Sisters "care for" -- and discover that the cross necklaces that he and one other "patient" wear are the only things keeping them safe. There won't be an escape for the gunslinger, unless the one tenderhearted Sister is brave enough to defy the others...

Considering that 90% of the story involves the hero lying in bed, it's a credit to "The Little Sisters of Eluria" that it's even half as scary as it is. Stephen King's story is a simple, straightforward one about Roland being where taken to a little hospital... where vampire nuns feast on their "patients" every night, with their skull-hag faces and long pointed teeth.

But if it had been handled badly, it still could have been really boring.
