“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...?

Beautiful (and terrifying) graphics convey the deep cloud of horror surrounding one of King's most famous antagonists...The Dark Man.
Love the illustrations - a must have for any King fan!
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.
