with one comment

Two new releases by Marvel Comics based on the work of Stephen King hit stores today:

The first issue of The Dark Tower: Treachery will kick off the latest comic book mini-series based on King’s famous The Dark Tower series of novels. It will be the first of six issues. Treachery is the third mini-series set in the world of The Dark Tower, after The Gunslinger Born and The Long Road Home, with two more planned for future release. They are set during the youth of the series’ protagonist Roland Deschain and explore the events that set him on his journey in search of The Dark Tower. The first two series were wonderful, and Treachery looks like to continue those high standards with the amazing artwork by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove a real benchmark in the comic world.

Also released is the first issue of a new mini-series based on one of Kings most famous novels, The Stand. This mini-series, entitled The Stand: Captain Trips, will be the first of a planned five that will cover the entire novel, with each series made up of six issues. With the huge success of the ongoing The Dark Tower comic adaptations, big things will be expected of  Captain Trips and both Stephen King and Marvel Comics will be looking to deliver.
