Marvel is pleased to announce that Stephen King’s Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #2, the second issue of the highly publicized and acclaimed limited series, has sold out at Diamond. Telling the origin of Roland, the protagonist from Stephen King‘s Dark Tower novels, readers and critics alike have thrilled to this milestone comic book series.
To meet demand for this issue, Marvel Comics is going back to print on Dark Tower #2 with an all new cover by Stuart Immonen!
Written by Robin Furth and Peter David, with involvement by the legendary Stephen King himself, this stunning tale is enthralling Dark Tower fans new and old. “Peter David’s script is slowly, deftly turning Robin Furth’s story plot into something that will no doubt fit nicely into King’s already established gunslinger mythology,” explained BrokenFrontier.Com’s Kert McAfee.
It’s not just the writing that’s causing excitementâ€”the art team of Jae Lee and Richard Isanove are drawing rave reviews. “Jae Lee and Richard Isanove’s art is stunningly gorgeous,” said Augie De Blieck of ComicBookResources.com. “Submit it to whatever comics award committee you wish to right now. It deserves an award or two.”
Note, Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born #2 may still be available at the retailer level. Marvel advises that retailers check their orders for upcoming issues as Dark Tower continues to earn rave reviews and sell outs with each issue. And don’t forget to pick up #3, in stores now!
