Marvel Unveils Exclusive Sneak Peek of 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: DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1! Today, Marvel is proud to present your new, lettered look at the highly anticipated first issue. New York Times Bestselling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski and colorist Nick Filardi present an all-new spin on King’s dark fantasy magnum opus that will keep even the most die-hard fans on their toes!
As King’s saga moves into the second volume, The Drawing of the Three, the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City! Fans will meet Eddie Dean – an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man with a powerful gift: the ability to unlock doors to other realms. But forces conspire against Eddie – and he must overcome his inner demons if he is to rise up and challenge the Man in Black. Witness the story of a man on his path to 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, Piotr Kowalski and Nick Filardi are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.”
Filled with all the drama, pathos and horror you’ve come to expect from master storyteller Stephen King, no fan should miss out on The Dark Tower’s triumphant return to comics. Perfect for new and long-time fans, a bold new chapter begins in THE DARK TOWER: THE DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1 – on-sale September 3rd!
If you’re a fan of the Canadian TV drama Orphan Black, you have plenty to be thankful for these days. The second season recently wrapped up, and a third season has been greenlit for release in 2015. And now we’ve learned that the mythology of Orphan Black will be expanding into other media.
IDW announced during Comic-Con that they’ve acquired the rights to produce an Orphan Black comic book. While the creative team have yet to be revealed, IDW said that they’re working closely with the show’s producers to take advantage of the storytelling possibilities afforded by the show’s second season.
For those who don’t follow Orphan Black, the show stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning, a con-artist who witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes the dead woman’s identity and career as a police detective in order to investigate the mystery. Manning discovers she is one of many clones caught up in a vast conspiracy. It’s unclear right now whether the comic will also star Manning, or if IDW will focus on other areas of the Orphan Black mythos.
“Orphan Black, in addition to being a captivating TV series, is a perfect premise for comics,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall in the company’s press release. “And as the second season has expanded the series in exciting new directions, that has only increased the amount of stories we’ll be able to tell in comic-book form.”
Orphan Black #1 will be released at some point in early 2015.
For the second time on Comic-Con preview night, DC is releasing first look art to a high-profile future project. In this case 2015’s Batman: Earth One Volume 2, the Geoff Johns-Gary Frank sequel to their 2012 original.

The Marvel Netflix series Daredevilhas found its love interest for Matt Murdock. True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page, according to THR. Page is the secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock, who eventually learns about her boss’s secret superhero life. The article states Page will be “brought to life in a meaningful way,” and not be a minor role. Elden Henson was recently signed to star as Foggy Nelson, Page’s other boss.
NBC’s Constantine has found its replacement leading lady, Zed in telenovela actress Angelica Celaya, according to Deadline. Zed is described as a psychic who has an interesting dark past and is a perfect foil for the lead character.
The premiere date for the second season of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was announced – Tuesday September 23 at 9pm ET. Marvel has several Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. variant covers releasing in August to keep the show fresh in everyone’s minds.
Details have also emerged regarding the Pacific Rim animated series which is planned as a bridge between the first and second film. Collider is reporting that filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is in talks with several Japanese companies to produce the animation.
