Nobody's Talking...

...about whether or not Stephen King is actually writing the Dark Tower comic book series coming from Marvel.

Moved back a year, from early 2006 to early 2007, the series will fill in the gaps in the life of Roland the Gunslinger.

I'm starting to fear -- from articles like this -- that King's total involvement will be to give it his stamp of approval. That doesn't mean it will be a waste of time. It just means that the hype has been a bit misleading.

(Yeah, yeah, I know they haven't said he'd be writing it, but when Marvel trumpets a deal for King to do a Dark Tower comic, what's a fanboy to think?)

And I'm sure it will be a hit. I just wish Marvel would be up-front about his status. If King is NOT writing the series, why not just come out and say it?
