THE GUNSLINGER: THE DEAD TOWN
Throughout most of Michael Whelan's career as an illustrator, he took the unusual approach of rarely using models. This is especially noteworthy in the case of a painting like this one. So many figures in so many different poses-all out of his imagination!
The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger
This heroic fantasy is set in a world of ominous landscape and macabre menace that is a dark mirror of our own. A spellbinding tale of good versus evil, it features one of Stephen King's most powerful creations - The Gunslinger, a haunting figure who embodies the qualities of a lone hero through the ages, from ancient myth to frontier western legend.
The Gunslinger's quest involves the pursuit of The Man in Black, a liaison with the sexually ravenous Alice, and a friendship with the kid from Earth called Jake. Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, here is stunning proof of Stephen King's storytelling sorcery.
