Has anyone picked up the first two Dark Tower comics? I picked them up yesterday. It was really weird seeing Roland's backstory come to life. I pictured the characters much differently. The Marvel vision of Gilead is not at all what I have in my mind's eye. There are maps in each of the comics - One of Gilead in #1 and one of Mejis in #2.
Marvel also released a Sketchbook, which I still need to track down. The local comic book store didn't have a copy in stock. Next month thery are releasing #3 as well as "The Gunslinger's Guidebook".
There are going ot be 7 stories in this series, but I read that there are supposed to be 30 comics total. Once all the comics are released, they will compile all seven into a graphic novel. They are releasing two alternate covers per book.
