Shane L. Johnson covers Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born 1

Original cover by Jae Lee; Marvel 2007. Shane L. Johnson's website is here.


  1. Jae Lee is amazing, but this equally great in a different way.

  2. Wow, someone actually redrew a cover without just doing the same thing in their own style. Sweet cover change!

  3. Excellent. I agree with the others. I'm curious if this is what you thought Roland looked like based off the books? While I love Jae Lee's art I never visualized Roland looking the way Lee draws him. I always pictured him looking closer to this. A bit like Clint Eastwood.

    PS: Great perspective on the hand and the arm.

  4. I usually don't like this style of art but this is just SO well done...Really nice linework and the coloring is great, too. I think Roland looks kind of like Robert Redford, myself!
    And if you're reading this, Mr.Goodin, please consider dis-abling the "lightbox" feature on this blog! I much preferred it before with the little magnifying anybody with me?!?
