The Dark Tower Seeing Light as Comic Books

Stephen King's beloved book series, The Dark Tower, is suddenly being reborn in several different forms. First, the Hollywood Reporter learned that King is working with "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams on a film version of the addictive 7-book series — possibly a miniseries. But before that, Marvel Entertainment is publishing graphic-novel versions of the fantasy/Western, which King calls his life's work.

The second comic-book installment, Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #2, hit stores last week, and each book will expand the back story of the central character, Roland Deschain. So far, King, who has served as a consultant for the comics creators, is pleased:

"I don't usually think of writing as a collaborative sport," he said. "But to me, the 'Dark Tower' looks more like a movie panel. Little by little, we've created this whole world."

You can watch a very cool video preview of the next book on King's web site. Or, to watch an interesting interview with Dark Tower artist Jae Lee and Marvel editor Joe Quesada,
