Originally published in 2007 as a seven part series from Marvel Comics. Writers: Robin Furth (adaptation), Peter David (script). Art by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove. Hardcover.
This first series works in conjunction with the events of Wizard & Glass and the showdown between Roland’s tet and the Big Coffin hunters. The series expands the saga of Roland Deschain by filling in the much asked about background of the character. For the first-time ever, the comic will examine the complete origin of Roland, showing him grow from a boy into the adult millions of readers have followed for years.
Robin Furth is the personal research assistant to Stephen King and the author of Stephen King's The Dark Tower: A Complete Concordance (2006). It is a compilation of her two previous encyclopedic books dealing with King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower: A Concordance, volume I – which explores the first four books in King's series – and A Concordance II, which gives the reader definitions and explanations of pivotal terms used over the course of the final three books of The Dark Tower.
Furth was raised in Upper Darby and along the coast of Maine. She illustrated the maps that appear in the novel The Dark Tower. Furth plotted the comic book spin-off miniseries The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born, which serves as a counterpart to the series of novels written by Stephen King.
