“Randall Flagg came to me when I wrote a poem called ‘The Dark Man’ when I was a junior or senior in college, but that guy never left my mind.” — Stephen King

Stephen King first wrote about the Dark Man in college after he envisioned a faceless man in cowboy boots and jeans and a denim jacket forever walking the roads. Later this dark man would come to be known around the world as one of King’s greatest villains, Randall Flagg, but at the time King only had simple questions on his mind: Where was this man going? What had he seen and done? What terrible things...?

i have ridden rails...

More than forty years after Stephen King first wrote his breathtaking poem ‘The Dark Man,’ Glenn Chadbourne set out to answer those questions in this World’s First Edition hardcover featuring more than 70 full–page illustrations from the talented artist behind The Secretary of Dreams.

i have slept in glaring swamps...

This Cemetery Dance Publications hardcover is a true marriage of words and art, with Chadbourne pulling the images from King’s imagination and illustrating them in magnificent detail. This incredible blending of King’s words with Chadbourne’s art creates a unique page turning experience you can return to again and again, always finding new details hidden in every illustration. You’ll discover hidden layers and mysterious secrets for years to come.

i am a dark man...

So who is the Dark Man and why is he traveling the country? The answers are terrifying...

    Brilliant Accomplishment!

    Beautiful (and terrifying) graphics convey the deep cloud of horror surrounding one of King's most famous antagonists...The Dark Man.

    Interesting, but not really worth the price

    I have ALWAYS followed the adventures of the Dark Man, through his incarnations in Mr. King's prose, so found the thought of reading the poem from whence he sprung to be an exciting event. The poem is good, but I was not impressed with the illustrations. Yes, several are very interesting, but I was expecting more than just pen/pencil and ink drawings. This will join all my other King books on the shelf, but in many respects I wish I would have saved myself the money.
