The series will be illustrated by Eisner-award winning artist Jae Lee (Inhumans).

“My life changed overnight when I learned I'd be working with Stephen King!” exclaims Jae Lee. “I know how special The Dark Tower series is to him. I'm incredibly honored that he would allow me to be a guest in his world.”
