Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 by Leslie Stein

LARRYBEAR HAS MOVED TO THE CITY IN NEW VOLUME

Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 is the second book collecting Leslie Stein’s loose, funny and charming autobiographical narratives that combine idiosyncratic fantasy and stark reality. Larrybear, our hero, has moved from the countryside to the city, where she finds work as a shop girl. Quotes from Theodore Dreiser’s Sister Carrie are sprinkled throughout the story to add humor and poignancy. Stein then takes us back to a childhood in the ’80s filled with odd experiences including joining a rock band with older people, sitting in on her mother’s AA groups, and the mystery of the disappearing gumballs. Finally, a fun story in which Larrybear and her new friend, Poppin the Flower go on a strange trip to see his father. Let us not forget that Marshmallow, Ping-Ping and Mimolette, Larry’s walking and talking instruments, have adventures all their own.

Stein’s gorgeous cartooning, highlighted by incredibly detailed stippling, and her dry sense of humor combine to make one of the most unique and immersive narrative experiences in comics.

When last we saw the gunslinger Roland, he was following the Man in Black’s path to find the Dark Tower and set Mid-World right. Along the trail, Roland came to Tull, a sleepy little town in the middle of the desert where the Man in Black’s sinister power had taken hold. Barely escaping with his life and leaving a pile of bodies in his wake, Roland arrived at the Way Station, where he meets Jake Chambers. Who is this sophisticated boy, and what is his connection to the world outside Mid-World? And is the Man in Black’s flight across the desert just an illusion? Prepare for a tale of fantasy, horror, revenge and betrayal - a tale that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Stephen King.

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - The Battle of Tull TP, co-written by Robin Furth

Roland Deschain, last of the gunslingers, continues searching for the Man in Black. Instead, he finds Tull, last stop of civilization - a town of devil grass, desert sand and despair. A town of lost souls, including Allie, the once-pretty barmaid whose encounter with the Man in Black left her saddled with a fearsome, cursed secret. Tull may seem to be on the very edge of the world, with nothing past the horizon but a steep fall to oblivion, but Roland believes otherwise: that beyond Tull lies a hidden truth that means everything to the fate of Mid-World. The Man in Black holds the key to that mystery, and Roland is going to keep following him - even through a trap set in Tull - to unlock it. Collecting DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER - THE BATTLE OF TULL #1-5.
