I have written before about how much I enjoy Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, and now I have read The Gunslinger Born I can happily suggest that anyone interested in the series should read this graphic novel.
King has commented he would like to create untold stories of Roland and while he is only creative consultant on this series his influence shows through. Most of the writing duties are handled by the great Peter David, and the amazing art is done by Jae Lee.
The gothic tale of cowboys in a wierd west is faithfully brought to life, and readers of the book will be very familiar with the setting and the characters.
People coming to this for the first time without having read the book should not have any trouble following the story, and may even want to read the novels.
