On its own, the story of this book would probably get an average score from me, but the extra material provided at the back adds just enough to the package to make the issue feel like something a bit special. In addition to a long text piece by Robin Furth (with illustrations by Lee and Isanove), the book contains pencil artwork from Lee and a transcript of a Q&A session which took place at a recent comics convention, featuring the book's creative team along with Stephen King and Marvel E-I-C Joe Quesada as speakers on the panel. It's an illuminating glimpse at some of the processes that went into creating the book which hints at the story's future direction and gives us an idea of how King views both his own magnum opus and the medium of comics. Even if you can find similar reports online, it's a more extensive report than I'd seen before, and these bonus materials go a long way to justify the high cover price and production values which have been applied to the Dark Tower series.
