Review by Daniel.Estes
I cannot imagine experiencing <i>The Gunslinger Born</i> for the first time without being well-versed in Stephen King's Dark Tower universe, or specifically having completed the seven-volume series. This one is for the fans, and starting your journey on the road to the Dark Tower with this book may result in bewildered head-scratching. This first volume of the Dark Tower graphic novels is an expedited retelling of the back stories from <i>The Gunslinger</i> (book #1) and <i>Wizard and Glass</i> (book #4).The literary landscape of King's Mid-World creation is a mess of contradictory imagery and events, which eventually evolved into part of the series' hypnotic charm. The collaboration of Peter David's writing, Robin Furth's story adaptation, Jae Lee's drawings and Richard Isanove's colors brings King's magnum opus to life in a way that is nothing less than a gift. Say thankee.
