Stephen King Gets Adorable With The Dark Tower: Drawing of the Three - The Prisoner #1 Skottie Young Variant

Marvel Comics have released the latest in their seemingly never-ending supply of adorable Skottie Young variants -- this time for Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three - The Prisoner #1 from writers Peter David and Robin Furth with art by Piotr Kowalski.

The variant depicts the gunslinger Roland Deschain in Young's inimitable style.

"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, and Piotr Kowalski are doing so in a way that you've never imagined."

You can check out the cover above and solicitation text below.
