Stephen King's The Dark Tower Graphic Novel Omnibuses Are 50% Off

Stephen King has published over 60 novels in his 50-year career as the most recognizable name in horror. Most of King's books are standalone works, though he has penned a few series, including The Dark Tower. By far King's longest story, The Dark Tower comprises eight books released over a 30-year stretch starting in 1982. In 2007, Marvel began adapting The Dark Tower into comic books. Although the adaptation was eventually canceled before reaching its proper conclusion, fans of original novels will still find lots to love in what was released. Publisher Gallery 13 recognized this and re-released the comics in hardcover omnibus format late last year. All three of The Dark Tower comic omnibuses are on sale for steep discounts at Amazon. The Dark Tower Graphic Novel Omnibus Deals The Dark Tower: Beginnings Omnibus -- $49 ($100) The Dark Tower: Gunslinger Omnibus -- $45 ($100) The Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three Omnibus -- $51 ($100) The Dark Tower series features a compelling mix of high fantasy, science fiction, and horror. But at its most basic premise, The Dark Tower is a traditional hero's journey. Set in the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, the story follows Roland Rechain's quest for the eponymous tower and the Man in Black, a powerful dark sorcerer. The novels often jump across time periods and different worlds, but the graphic novels, for the most part, are more linear, which gives them a more intimate reading experience that can be interesting to both longtime readers and Dark Tower newcomers. The Dark Tower: Beginnings Omnibus may be of particular note for longtime fans of the series. Essentially a prequel, this hardcover omnibus contains five graphic novels chronicling Roland Deschain of Gilead's coming-of-age story that led to him becoming the last gunslinger. It covers and expands upon Roland's backstory as alluded to in flashbacks and conversations throughout the series. Although King himself didn't write the comics, he served as the creative supervisor on the project. Clocking in at 800 pages, The Dark Tower: Beginnings Omnibus is only $49. Considering it was still selling for $100 at times earlier this year, this is a pretty awesome deal. Continue Reading at GameSpot
