Stephen King’s The Dark Tower
Graphic Novel: The Gunslinger Born (Marvel Comics)
(con’t from the last post)
The graphic novel makes some, mostly minor, changes to the story of The Dark Tower.
In the novels she is not naked, but is still humiliated and later beaten by Marten.
The storyline is the same though: Marten did that specifically to provoke Roland into challenging Cort early, in order to get his gunslinger title and obtain the guns (at left) so he could kill Marten, thinking he might fail.
But the beauty of the illustrations gives more than just story details, it gives a sense of wonder and romanticism to the land of Gilead (at right). King did an amazing job on the books, but there is no way to match graphic novels when it comes to literary visualization.
I will review the later chapters of The Gunslinger Born as the scenes come up in later Dark Tower books.
