The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger BornThe Marvel Dark Tower Graphic novel series began when the first of Marvel’s Stephen King's Dark Tower Comic books was issued at midnight on February 7th 2007. In this first volume, The Gunslinger Born, the apprentice gunslinger Roland Deschain is taunted by his father’s sorcerer into undergoing his coming of age test at the early age of 14.
Instead of failing, as Marten had hoped, Roland wins his gunslinger’s guns. Roland’s father, Steven Deschain, sends his son on a mission to the Outer Arc town of Hambry to save his son from assassins. Roland and his friends must find out if Hambry’s Horsemen’s Association is still loyal to Gilead.
They discover that Hambry is far from the sleepy backwater that Steven Deschain thought he had sent his son to.
The Dark Tower - The Long Road HomeIn the second volume of The Dark Tower graphic novels, Roland’s forbidden lover Susan Delgado is accused of treason and burned on a Charyou Tree fire.
Even though Roland is still grieving his loss, he must travel to Gilead to hand the Maerlyn’s Grapefruit seeing sphere to his father. Maerlyn’s Grapefruit traps Roland’s consciousness inside its pink dreamscape.
While Roland battles with the demons within the grapefruit, his ka-tet, Cuthbert Allgood and Alain Johns, journey home, guarding the comatose young dinh’s body against the forces that are conspiring to destroy them all.
The Dark Tower: TreacheryRoland, Alain and Cuthbert make it back to Gilead, but Roland is still entrapped by the evil of Maerlyn’s Grapefruit. He doesn’t tell his father that the sphere exists and he continues to peer into the grapefruit, despite the effect that it has on his health and the nightmares that it brings to him.
Alain and Cuthbert are declared gunslingers, but fellow apprentices are jealous and say that Roland’s tet-mates gained their guns dishonestly.
Meanwhile, Roland’s father, Steven, eagerly awaits the return of his wife Gabrielle, who has left her former lover Marten.
Gabrielle’s love is not so easy to renounce, though, and a chain of events is set off that will have dire consequences for all.

When he wakes up again, Roland finds that he has been suspended in white bandages by the Little Sisters of Eluria.
