Re: Roland's Quest


Inspired by The Dark Tower series by Stephen King:

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed."

Quite possibly the greatest opening line of a story ever written. Long days and pleasant nights, my friends.

Halftones are 20 lpi.

Really feels like it is straight out of a graphic novel. Love that you used silhouettes to keep that mysterious feel of the opening line.

I feel so bad for the Gunslinger, about to start climbing that accursed tower, over, and over, and over...

Be justified in your convictions. Be completely committed. Earn what you want and need rather than waiting for others to give you what you desire. Deserve victory. Tagla vassternich.

Re: Roland's Quest


epic series that extends through so many more books than just the seven in the Gunslinger series (almost gotta add Salem's Lot, Hearts In Atlantis and Insomnia at least!)

So true. The series is epic beyond the heart of the books. Make sure you read the graphic novel compendiums to get the back stories! Oh, and Blaine the Mono scares me worse than Thomas the Tank. Now that's scary!!

You know King just announced he's going to write another book within the dark tower series. Supposed to take play inbetween 'Wolves' and 'Song'. Btw I love the shirt. Should have a whole derby dedicated to the series in my opinion

I stopped reading after Wizard and Glass. This reminds that was probably a decision I should correct soon. :^)

Re: Roland's Quest


When I saw the title I was all excited because I thought this would be about the Song of Roland. I will say, though, that I was pleasantly surprised!

Actually it's supposed to be between Wizard and Wolves. The book is finished (last i heard) and I believe it has a release date either this fall or fall of 2012. Not sure why a fall release date is stuck in my head. Title: The Wind Through the Keyhole (orvsomething like that)

This GMV. If it doesnt print here i hope ot does somewhere! Must have! Awesome work!
