    I have to admit that I haven't yet started the series; I'm waiting for all seven issues before I begin. I know that doesn't make a lot of sense to many of us (and to me either, actually, because I read each volume of The Green Mile as it came out) but that's just what I'm doing.

    Well, it sorta' makes sense in a way maybe. I just couldn't do it personally.

    It would have been easy for me with my limited access to comics but I've been driving miles for them for years already.

    I've bought all of mine via eBay. I could drive to a comic book store, but I'm lazy and the one that is near my place doesn't carry it.
    I really hope there isn't a long wait between the first arc and the second...

    My favourite part of the comics thus far has been the addendums that Robin Furth's been writing, explaining the geography of Mid-World, and the creation of both Maerlyn's Rainbow and gunslinger's guns.

    That's the sort of stuff I've been salivating for since I started reading them oh so many years ago.

    I like the backstories too. I think I enjoy just seeing the characters too!

    I like seeing the ones that were only referred to in the books, like John Farson.

    Hell yes! I love the way that Farson is portrayed in the comics, he looks brutal.

    You know, i think this is my favorite as well. I like having this history and part of the story that wasn't told in books 1-7. Rolands memory at times is vague and swiss cheese like. Robin Furth just laid it all out in a short descriptive story.

    mmmm swiss cheese.

    Whoever reads anything on the second arc (how many will there be anyway?) has to promise to post it here for everyone.

    I'm reading the comics as they come out (or a little after they come out, as AJ has to mail them to me from PA). I have to say that I'm enjoying them quite a lot, and they've made me start rereading the series, which I'd been intending to do for some time now. I'm partway through the Gunslinger for the umteenth time, and loving it.

    The style of the artwork took some getting used to, but now I'm really enjoying it. Not being a comic fan, really, I can't comment on how they stack up compared to other comics...but they seem pretty freakin' awesome to me.

    Yay for new Tower stuff for us old-timers to get excited about again!

    I've been busy

    There is also a page for the Gunslinger Born series. I gave heavy credit where it was due for the images.

    I get mine from g-mart.com - they're awesome. You can even set up a subscription so they'll automatically ship to you, and they do a great job of wrapping them up so that they don't get folded, stapled or mutilated.

    In the Marvel Spotlight issue focusing on The Dark Tower comic, it says that the second arc will be 5 issues in length, and cover the boys return to Gilead. The rest of the arcs are supposed to all be 6 issue arcs, so that would be 3 more 6 issue arcs after the second arc.

    Thanks dude! By chance did it say when we could expect the second arc? Or, how long between each one?

    No, it didn't give any info on how long there will be between each arc. All I've read are the various unconfirmed things I've found on the net, that there will most likely be a few months between arcs, but again that's just speculation. I sure hope we only have to wait a few months between the arcs though.

    Me too. I can't imagine having to wait again like we did with the books.

    Honestly, one of the things I liked the most about the books was the waiting between. Well, I certianly didn'y enjoy it at the time, but now that I look back, it helped the release day seem all the more sweet. So if we have a couple months wait between arcs, I won't mind terribly.

    Anticipation is the best. For any of you who were younger when you started the DT series of books ( I was REALLY young, in my early 20's yet) you can appreciate the anticipation...it's the BEST!!!

    I was fine with the original waits and suffered through them all. Its why I never shop online--to "instant gratification" oriented.

    So it would be nice if it wasn't too long

    I did the best I could with what I had but now...we are going totally techno.

    Look for this page on the website to be auto updated from the information here you guys. It'll look a little different but this is pretty much what we are talking about.
