The greatest super-hero comic of all time — now a major motion picture directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Nicolas Cage.! Have you ever wanted to be a super hero? No, I mean REALLY wanted to be a super hero? Dave Lizewski has — but unlike you or me, he’s not willing to let it stop with simple daydreams. Designing a suit for himself, and taking the name “Kick-Ass,” Dave decides to make his dreary existence more exciting — and maybe even help some people in the process. But with no special powers and outmatched by New York City’s most hardened criminals, Kick-Ass might be in for a little more than he bargained for. With his super-hero secret identity gaining more and more fans due to a popular viral video, and other masked vigilantes beginning to make their presence felt in the city, Dave knows that his extracurricular activity is dangerous, maybe even stupid — but he’s got the itch, and it ain’t going away.

Cover by JAE LEE & RICHARD ISANOVE
“The Man in Black fled across the desert…and the gunslinger followed.” With those words from a short story published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Stephen King launched one of the most seminal characters in his lifetime of writing into a destiny fraught with danger, death, triumph and loss. In the almost thirty years since that momentous occasion, King introduced millions of readers to the densely textured realm of Mid-World through his magnum opus, the Dark Tower series of novels. King joined with Marvel in 2007 to bring his masterwork of fantasy to a new generation of readers. Adding stunning new textures to the mythos of Roland and Mid-World for four years, the initial arc of King and Marvel’s union is now complete, and the entire run is collected here. Collecting DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER BORN #1-7, THE LONG ROAD HOME #1-5, TREACHERY #1-6, SORCERER #1, THE FALL OF GILEAD #1-6 and THE BATTLE OF JERICHO HILL #1-5.

And one of them is coming for him even now. One of them known as the last gunslinger, Roland Deschain. And not all the horrors of Thunderclap will stand in his way!
