Re: Dark Tower

Got my copies!

Re: Dark Tower

This should probably go in the "Horror Gaming and Collectibles" section.

Re: Dark Tower

You're right...I just need to explore this wonderful, informative site more. Thanks!

Re: Dark Tower

Is this based on Stephen King's "The Dark Tower"?

Yep.  They gave it a great review at aintitcool.com

Re: Dark Tower

Thanks, kev, I will have to check it out.

Re: Dark Tower

The Dark Tower series are a few of the only Stephen King books I haven't read.  I might just read the comics instead.  tongue

Re: Dark Tower

OMG The Dark Tower series rules! But be warned, its not horror. It is actually very hard to catagorize.

Re: Dark Tower

I bought all three different covers for 92.38...wow...what they'll be worth one day!
Get em while they're hot folks they won't ever be printing them again.
Collector's Items for Sure.

Re: Dark Tower

I can't wait! as my title shows I love anything that Stephen King is involved in.

Re: Dark Tower

the comic book store was open late night for this one:) got my copy, I have been reading 300, the movie comes out soon also.

Re: Dark Tower

STephen King says he has no intention of ever bringing the Dark Tower to the big screen - I believe the success of this comic will govern differently and that this is just a precursor to this series actually becoming a big screen animated blockbuster in the style of Lord of the Rings...

Re: Dark Tower

I've always thought that The Dark Tower series could be amazing on the big screen but does anybody really think that they would give it an epic movie series like it deserves.

Re: Dark Tower

A movie would be interesting.  I have books 1 thu 4.

Re: Dark Tower

Peter Jackson comes to mind.

I am a huge fan of The Dark Tower series (and Stephen King in general) and would have to disagree with you on this one.  I believe that it is horror.  What makes it scary is not only what The Gunslinger, or Roland of Gilead, must face but what he must deal with inside as he is fully obsessed with reaching the Dark Tower.

Re: Dark Tower

Same here, I would say that the Dark Tower series mixes many different types of genres and horror is for sure one of them.
