The first story in Stephen King’s epic fantasy adventure series, The Dark Tower introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, the world’s last gunslinger.   The enigmatic Roland tracks an even more mysterious “Man in Black” toward a forbidding dark tower, battling man-made monsters and otherworldly creatures along the way.  Roland’s quest in the eight volume Dark Tower series transcends the bounds of MidWorld and may even transform Roland, the ultimate loner, himself.

Roland's story has been converted into the graphic novel format and there is a much anticipated film adaptation in the works.  It all began with The Gunslinger!  Check it out if you enjoy epic fantasies.
