Official Press Release

Stephen King's chart-topping epic continues with the release of Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #5 this week. Just outside Hambry, Roland makes a monstrous discovery: the evil Farson and his Coffin Riders have stolen the awesome weapons of the Old Ones and now have the oil to power them and launch an attack against the Affiliation-a group which counts among its members Roland's father, Stephen Deschain! And, at just the wrong time, the young gunslinger's ka-tet may be splintering, when Cuthbert accuses Roland of cowardice and rides off on his own. Things are going sour in Mid-World, sai. All this plus a six-gun full of extras!

With the release of this week's issue, Lilja's Library declares "With over half of the story arc done I can honestly say that Gunslinger Born is a success."

With only two issues to go, the action's only going to get hotter, the stakes higher, and the danger greater!
