The Visual Darkness

I am not a graphic novel reader, but being a Stephen King obsessed fan I did read the first collection of the Dark Tower. Overall the interpretation was pretty good, even thought the dialogue seems stiff at times. The drawings are wonderful and are just how I pictured...
I am not a graphic novel reader, but being a Stephen King obsessed fan I did read the first collection of the Dark Tower. Overall the interpretation was pretty good, even thought the dialogue seems stiff at times. The drawings are wonderful and are just how I pictured everything in my head when I read the books. I am reading the next collected installment and am hoping it is just as good.

Missing huge sections of the comics

The essential storyline is excellent, although those not familiar with the book series may have a hard time following it. The problem with this edition (the bound hardcover), is that the small sidebars giving a history of the "Dark Tower" universe are completely missing...
The essential storyline is excellent, although those not familiar with the book series may have a hard time following it. The problem with this edition (the bound hardcover), is that the small sidebars giving a history of the "Dark Tower" universe are completely missing. I found these to be a bigger draw than the storyline itself. This is a great story, but collect the individual comics and skip this edition.
