Marvel Announces Next Chapter in Stephen King's Dark Tower Series

Marvel Comics has announced that the next installment of the Dark Tower series kicks off in December. Dark Tower: The Gunslinger – The Little Sisters of Eluria will be written by Robin Furth and Peter David, with art by Luke Ross.

Synopsis from Marvel is as follows:
Roland’s journey has been long and treacherous and now there is nothing he can do to fend off the Little Sisters and whatever they have in store for him. Will the Gunslinger live to see the light of day? Find out in Dark Tower: The Gunslinger – The Little Sisters Of Eluria #1!
I am a huge fan of the Dark Tower Series.  I enjoy having this comic in my rotation on a monthly basis. I am extremely excited that Marvel and Stephen King has agreed to keep this series going on a regular basis.  Robin Furth does a wonderful job of exploring and expanding the Dark Tower world.

  1. You know, When the Marvel series was announced I seem to remember them saying they wanted to do that because between Hambry and where we pick up in The Gunslinger, a ton of other stuff takes place, but it seems like the most they've done is re-integrate Sheemy and introduce (and kill off quickly) Aileen. I am hoping that after Little Sisters, we see fewer familiar tales and adaptations, and more of Rolands travels that were left untold (save for maybe The Walking Waters...).
