    Default The Dark Tower: Evil Ground

    DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER - EVIL GROUND #1 (of 2)

    ROBIN FURTH and PETER DAVID (W)
    RICHARD ISANOVE (A/C)

    While traveling through the Desatoya Mountains towards Eluria, Roland comes across a haunted camp. While there, he relives one of his past adventures, in which he and his ka-tet fought Farson's forces, only to be trapped by supernatural enemies. A fascinating prequel to THE LITTLE SISTERS OF ELURIA, and also a return to Roland's much-loved early adventures, EVIL GROUND is a must-read for all Dark Tower fans.

    Does King have any input into this series?

    Robin always runs ideas past him. I asked about that in my interview with him for the Dark Tower Companion. His response was interesting!

    They're still milking this?

    I think it's great. Brings a younger audience to actually King books. Good stuff.

    I think I remember them saying that when the series was renewed past the first 30 issues that there would be another 30 issues.

    Since each of the 5 series so far have only been 5 issues each, it could be that they're doing these two issues along with the 2 Sheemie issues and maybe another one-shot to fill out the other 5 issues and enable them to do another hardcover.

    I was actually curious at what they were planning to do if they had only had the 2 Sheemie issues as stragglers since they love to collect things into HC for double-dipping.

    I bet!

    I've been hot-and-cold on the comics overall, but some of them have been good. I really liked the first issue of Sheemie's Tale, for example, and Evil Ground sounds interesting. I'm happy to see Richard Isanove doing the art; he does good work, and one of the major problems I've had with the comics is that some of the artists who've worked on The Gunslinger have been ... well, let's just be charitable and say they didn't fit in as well as they might have.

    I interviewed quite a few of the artists for my book -- it's interesting to hear their varying approaches to the work. And there's one great anecdote about the model that was used for Sylvia Pittston in Tull series.

    Well, I was already going to be buying your new book, but now I'm even more excited about it!

    Just saw this thread. I wonder what all is planned for the comics? I wonder if they will go onto the drawing of the three book and beyond?

    I have most of the Dark Tower comics, but stopped reading when they started overlapping with The Gunslinger. (For me the comics are about the new stories. That being said I enjoyed Gunslinger Born which is predominantly a retelling of a large chunk of Wizard and Glass but that did include a lot of new material.)

    Sheemie's tale (and it seems I'm out of date on that! I didn't realise it was out already.) and this though... yes. Right up my street.

    Is it in reference to the model who
    Spoiler:
    died from lukemia and King sent the autographed book to a benefit auction for
    her and the people running it kept the book
    ?

    It is in reference to that, but I didn't hear about either of those outcomes.
    Spoiler:
    1) that she died and 2) that they kept the book
    .

    Wonder if this will be combined with Sheemie for the hardcover?

    Either that or Marvel will hold both out and include them only in the omnibus, if an omnibus is made.

    I'm hoping for another two parter after Evil Ground so they can combine all three into a new hardcover.
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I didn't see this at my comic store. Marvel says it hits stores April 3. Has anyone seen this yet?

    It's not out until April 3 according to TFAW.com, which is the most useful online comic store I know of.

    Comic stores don't always get all of the titles that are released and set them on the shelves. Better to tell them ahead of time that you are interested in it if you plan to buy there.
