Furth on "The Gunslinger Born"

I was part of a Marvel teleconference today on “Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born.”

The miniseries, based on Stephen King’s “Dark Tower” novels (specifically “Wizard & Glass), is plotted by Robin Furth, author of “Stephen King’s Dark Tower: A Concordance,” scripted by Peter David and illustrated by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove.

Furth talked about the process. She worked to boil down “Wizard & Glass” to its essence, bounced ideas off Stephen King, then took those ideas to a trio of editors at Marvel.

“Once we had something that we felt good about, it went over to Jae,” Furth said. Then off to Isanove and finally to David for dialogue. Now that they’ve been working together for a while — Lee is at work on issue No. 7 — ideas are flowing back and forth, Furth said. “I think that’s really neat. It’s become this really collaborative thing.”

Look for several miniseries to follow, leading up to the battle of Jericho Hill, Furth said.

Those old comics seem to be worth a lot of money. I used to have a load of old Beano/Dandy but my brother pretty much vandalized them ...

I found you quite by chance by the Blogger "next blog" button.

Come by my blog if you like. It's in a diary format and it's pretty different to yours ...

All the Best,
Take care,
