    My local library may have them as well. That's how I read Locke & Key without touching my collectables.

    "I really can't do that with the Dark Tower comics except to say "other worlds than these" but even then are we supposed to believe that there are multiple Rolands in different universes all on different quests for the Tower?"

    I haven't given the comics shot yet - heck, I've only read "The Gunslinger" at this point! - but since "other worlds" is a theme, I can't see why comic version wouldn't work, assuming they're of decent quality.

    Does the below scene from the comics play out the same way in The Gunslinger? If not, is there a moment close to it?

    Spoiler:

    lol just goes to show how no one cares about the comics anymore.

    No, that scene never happened. There's never any point in 'The Gunslinger' where Roland considers leaving the Tower behind to raise Jake.

    Heck I don't think there's ANY scene in the entire series where Roland contemplates leaving the Tower behind even when he's become cuddlier with the Ka-tet.

    I recently acquired the rest, from the Tull story on, after several years. My first impression echoed someone else's complaint about the "rambling out loud to himself" uncharacteristic Roland. I tried to set that aside and forgive it, because obviously it's how they chose to give us the narrative and the gunslingers inner workings. The introduction explains some of that but I still don't understand why it had to be first person spoken...Fuck it, I'm going to enjoy them as much as possible
