The Dark Tower
So I saw _The Dark Tower_ comic books for sale when Tim and I visited the comic shop at Pike's Place Market around two weeks ago. As I currently have around $3.45 in all of my bank accounts put together, comics aren't really in my budget, especially because I have an upcoming move to Boise to finance!
I admit it: I took the lowdown no-good skanky way out of things: I found a torrent of the Dark Tower series. It's pretty nice, actually; good quality scans (I assume) of the comic books, which were apparently beautifully printed on beautiful paper, because there are little to no artifacts preserved.
I have devoured the first four issues in the last hour. It's a little painful to read them on a 13" laptop screen, but, I mean, I'm not paying for them. I wish I could, though; the comics are beautifully drawn, colored, lettered and scripted (not in that order?), and I hope that there are many more of them!
When I get some monays, Marvel, I'll be back at that shop to buy these exact comics at their current market value. Perhaps in one of those sleek omnibus editions if you have them out by then. I promise.
