    I read on some of the comic sites that "Sheemies Tale" was supposed to released in the HC edition of "Little Sisters of Eluria" but I don't see it in the HC issue. Was it supposed to be released at the same time as the HC?

    My wife got me this for Father's Day, but I'm holding off on it until I finish the actual LSOE novella. I have Everything's Eventual, but I decided to read my Grant Artist Edition instead. It felt so wrong to crack that book open, and yet it felt so right because it is such a nice volume. I love the leatherette cover, and the heavy paper they used; the artwork is beautiful as well. On a barely related note, I started reading "Locke & Key" as well, and now I wish I hadn't left that to sit on my shelf for so long.

    While I understand King and Marvel are trying to expand the audience, why wouldn't folks just read the books? Seems "wierd" to me.
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    In places where the stories overlap, King's novels are vastly superior. For example, everything happens way too fast in "Gunslinger Born". There just isn't a good way, I think, to boil 500 pages of the W&G story down into a 125 page comic book that takes 30 minutes to read. I think the LSOE comic did a good job with the story, but the novella is still much better. I didn't like how the narration in the novella became Roland's spoken words in the comic. Finally, though, I do like the other comics that provide supplemental material that isn't covered in great detail in the books (although it drives me batty when they contradict the books).

    Especially as it was often or not a monologue! I don't mind them moving text around a bit as I understand that different mediums tell the story a different way, but that chattering was just unnatural and out of character.

    There was a particular example of text that was moved that was actually incorrect, at least to my eyes. There is a scene in King's version where
    Spoiler:
    Roland looks at one of the Little Sisters and gets a sense of 'variousness' when looking at her skin. I.e. the sense that she is actually made up of various smaller parts.
    The reason for this becomes evident later.

    In the comic that observation is used by Roland
    Spoiler:
    when he see's Jenna's final fate. Now I understand that Jenna is becoming like the other vampire sisters. And her final fate proves that the 'variousness' applies to her too, but I didn't get the impression that Roland got that sense from her beforehand. He knew she was becoming like the other sisters, but I think that in that sense she was just like any other young woman. I got the impression that the sense of 'variousness' was something that Roland actually physically saw when looking at one of the other sisters, a sense of movement in her skin. Jenna never showed any sign of that. She just appeared one way... then when he awoke she was another. If that makes sense.


    That being said, I liked the comic adaptation overall and I quite enjoyed Furth's back story concerning the sisters' origins.
