Top positive review
Great writing and illustrations, but not a new storyline
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2018
I am not a comic book/graphic novel guy but I am PASSIONATE about The Dark Tower. I saw that this first collection was on Amazon for $12,50 and figured, why not? I enjoyed "The Gunslinger Born" quite a lot. The writing was spot-on (in fact, I assumed much of it was taken directly from the books but this doesn't appear exactly so), and the illustrations are amazing. (Although there were several panels where I wondered why the artists chose a particular angle, facial expression, or in a few cases, what I was looking at to begin with. I chalk that up, however, to my ignorance of the style.)
While I did greatly enjoy the series, I was somehow under the impression that it was a new adventure but at least for "The Gunslinger Born," this is not the case as it combines part of "The Gunslinger" and parts of "Wizard and Glass."
Still, if you're a fan of King's "The Dark Tower," I don't think you'll be disappointed at all with this series.
