About the Author
Robin Furth was born and raised in Philadelphia and attended the University of Pennsylvania. While enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Maine, she was introduced to Stephen King, who needed a research assistant. Her work with King as he completed the "Dark Tower" series produced the "Dark Tower Concordance". Furth has since written the story lines for Marvel s bestselling comic book spin-off series "The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born". She divides her time among Maine, the south of England, and Mid-World.
Stephen King has written more than forty books and two hundred short stories. He has won the World Fantasy Award, several Bram Stoker awards, and the O. Henry Award for his story "The Man in the Black Suit."

Then, somewhere around or after The Battle of Jericho Hill, the quality became sporadic. Some issues, or even entire arcs, failed to impress the way the earlier ones did. The artwork became more standard and cartoonish, the narration became unbearable, and needless changes began to be made seemingly on a whim. Bright spots still emerged, like "The Little Sisters of Eluria", but there was no consistency.
Now comes the climax in the adaptation of Stephen King's novel The Gunslinger, and the negative qualities have finally eclipsed the good. Forget the stunning two-page splashes; you don't even get full-page drawings. Forget the original novel; you'll need to if you want to avoid growing irritated or outright angry over changes that are offered with weak justifications from Robin Furth. About 80% of this book is a disappointment, with some sections, particularly Chapter 4, almost reaching must-have status for Dark Tower junkies.
I really hope Marvel finds the commitment it had to this series when it started. The only upcoming releases are two-issue ancillary tales. It has taken years to follow Roland to the golgotha on the edge of the Western Sea, and the characters from The Drawing of the Three have been informally introduced during the course of "The Gunslinger".Read more ›
