With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King's iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead.
Roland is the last of his kind, a gunslinger charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world--a world that moved on, as they say. In this desolate reality--a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways--Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower.
Now, in the graphic novel series adaptation Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland's troubled past and ongoing saga is revealed.
Sumptuously drawn by Richard Isanove, Sean Phillips, Luke Ross, and Michael Lark, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, The Gunslinger adaptation is an extraordinary and terrifying journey--ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King's modern literary classic The Dark Tower, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures transformed from his blockbuster novels.
The barony of Gilead has finally fallen to the forces of the evil John Farson, and the surviving young gunslingers were massacred at the decisive Battle of Jericho Hill. But one has risen from the ashes: Roland Deschain. Now as the last of the gunslingers, Roland sets out in search of the mysterious Dark Tower--the one place where he can set the events of his out-of-sync world right again. Along the way, Roland will battle forces from his worst nightmares as he trails the elusive Man in Black--the inhuman sorcerer who holds the key to Roland's desperate search.

Even for newbies, however, it's material that helps establish a mood and document the sad state of Mid-World 20 years after the fall of Gilead.
Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - The Journey Begins #1
The farmer Brown and his lovable raven Zoltan eventually enter the picture. Here the story finally begins to diverge in significant ways - some good and some not so much.
The writers falter somewhat in their presentation of the scene. All those years ago it was Roland's encounter with Brown that truly sucked me into the novel. King's prose produced an eerie, dreamlike haze where Roland couldn't quite be sure whether Brown was a man or an illusion crafted by his black-clad enemy.
Furth and David don't entirely capture the dreamlike quality of this scene.

Their insistence on maintaining an omniscient, first-person narrator alters the tone in a fairly significant way. What the narrator doesn't try to communicate, Roland himself is forced to speak. I've seen so many cases where these comics have outdone the original novels in their handling of characters and scenes, but it's clear the original is sometimes better.
Only in the final few pages does the scope of The Gunslinger become apparent. Ultimately, these scenes of an older Roland are every bit as much a framing device as the original scene was in The Gunslinger Born 1. The real story to be told is set immediately after the conclusion of The Battle of Jericho Hill. On one hand, this is excellent news. I'm rarely very pleased with how the writers abruptly cut off each mini-series.
The advantage has always been that another mini waited in the wings to pick up the pieces.
