    That's it? I guess the last hardcover will collect Sheemie's Tale, Evil Ground, and this.

    Sounds cool, theoretically. I hope it's better than the first issue of Evil Ground, which was ... not very good.

    Nice art.... but I'm not keen on the fact they seem to be heavily borrowing from a certain Biblical story...

    And I'm sure Lord Perth and Arthur lived in different time periods, although there is nowhere that is actually stated. Just a feeling, ye ken.

    Jake mentions in The Waste Lands that the story sounds like the story of David and Goliath; that comes straight from King, and is not an invention of the comics.

    Arthur Eld being involved in it, though, does seem to be a new wrinkle; in the novel, it's only mentioned that Lord Perth was felled by a little boy.

    Hi people !
    Did I understand well ? Is it the conclusion of Marvel's saga?
    There won't be "The drawing of the three" adaptation ?

    (I'm french an not entirely sure of my translation skills )

    According to this, it's the end of the adaptation. For now, at least.

    After what seems like maybe 7 years of the comics I'm glad that its ending and kind of sad that they more then likely are done and won't be showing the doors. Drawing of the three is one of my favorite books.

    I wonder if this set of 30 issues has done well enough that Marvel will do a second omnibus.

    And, if so, I wonder if they will put Sheemie's Tale, Evil Ground, and Lord Perth in a more chronological placement between other books or just stick them at the end.

    Merlin, see post #8 above for why that is.
    "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.

    So I got an email from my local comic store and they show that this is scheduled to come out tomorrow. So unless they have something at the back of the comic teasing another comic it looks like tomorrow will be the last comic in the Dark Tower run.

    I'm kind of both happy and sad that this will be the end. I'm glad this is the end because for some stupid reason comixology stopped carrying the comics half way through a story arc but then started carrying the last arc. But at the same time I'm sad it's ending because I liked seeing the story made into a comic. Drawing of the three was my favorite book and would of loved to see that made into a comic.

    I would have loved it in theory for it to continue, but I find myself being kind of glad that it's stopping. Marvel put a few of the arcs in The Gunslinger out with art that I thought was fairly awful. (I'm thinking specifically of Alex Maleev's stuff; which is weird, because he's a highly-respected comics artist, not that you'd know it from his Dark Tower issues.) I'd hate to see that happen to [I]The Drawing of the Three[I].

    WTF?! My local store had a huge issue with there deliveries and a bunch of comics were ruined. So now I have to wait a week or two until they get a new shipment.

    Got mine today, and just finished reading it. I didn't like it much at all, personally.

    Agreed. I'd have preferred an adaptation of the original material, not new material written by someone else.
