Skottie Young Creates New Variant Cover For STEPHEN KING’S THE DARK TOWER: DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1!

This September Stephen King’s fan-favorite Dark Tower epic returns to Marvel for an all-new beginning in THE DARK TOWER: THE DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1! But first, Marvel is proud to officially unveil a brand new variant cover to the first issue by Eisner-award winning storyteller Skottie Young! Depicting the iconic Gunslinger Roland Deschain rendered in Skottie Young’s inimitable style – no Dark Tower fan should miss out on this hilarious variant cover when it hits comic shops next month!

Marvel once again teams with America’s #1 storyteller Stephen King on his dark fantasy magnum opus that has captivated fans the world over. As the saga moves to the second volume of King’s story, The Drawing of the Three, the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City! Perfect for new and long-time fans, readers will experience the Dark Tower like never before as the rich and vibrant world of King’s tale comes to life in a whole new way!

Thought you knew the whole story? Think again! Fan-favorite writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski present an all-new spin on The Drawing of the Three that will keep even the most die-hard fans on their toes. As this tale of urban crime opens, fans will meet Eddie Dean – an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man with the ability to open doors to other worlds. Can he overcome his haunting addiction, family tragedy, and deadly forces that conspire to stop him from challenging the enigmatic Man in Black? Witness the story of a man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life!

“This is the ‘All-New Marvel NOW’ version of The Dark Tower. We’re now refocusing our spotlight to explore the events that led to the formation of the Ka-Tet that aided the gunslinger Roland Deschain on his quest,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “But instead of encountering Eddie Dean later in his life, as you do in the novel, we zoom back to 1964 and meet him as a toddler, so while we are adapting the second novel, we’re also weaving together events in a new way that will surprise everyone who has already read the book. We’re ‘assembling the Avengers’ of the Dark Tower universe, but Robin Furth, Peter David, and Piotr Kowalski are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.”

Fans can get their hands on the hotly anticipated Skottie Young variant cover at their local comic shop when the first issue hits comic shops next month. A bold new chapter in the Dark Tower saga is about to begin – and no fan should miss out. Don’t miss the historic return of this landmark series in DARK TOWER: THE DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1, on sale September 3rd!

    Awesome cover. Not sure if I’m a fan of the changes being made to Eddie’s backstory though.

    That’s the genius of the novel’s ending. Changes can be made.

    I miss Jae Lee’s Gunslinger. This one looks too cartoonish

    That’s disgusting! Big lack of respect for one of the greatest S.K’s novels!!

    Let’s keep the rhetoric to a minimum. Comicosity embraces criticism, but not rudeness. This is not your average comment section where anything goes. Posts over the line will be deleted immediately.

    “The Fall of Gilead” and “Battle of Jericho Hill” were worth reading. The rest are just absolutely superfluous, with illustration that is too mediocre to justify recycling the material. King needs to leave the graphic novels to his son, IMO, because “Locke & Key” blows these out of the frickin’ water.
