I have had my eye on the Dark Tower series for a while now? It’s a short book, so a review for it would be pointless. Calling themselves The Little Sistersthey use tiny bug -like creatures they call “doctors” to heal his severe injuries. I liked the different take on vampires and didn’t guess the full secret of the doctor bugs till it was revealed in the story and then it was a little sad.

The Sisters bring one of the mutants sistdrs the hospital to remove the medallions from Roland and the patient next to him, since the Sisters are unable to touch the medallions themselves. I cherry-picked my copy from the short story collection: Jenna is also the one who put the necklace on Roland and who he revealed his true identity to.

The Dark Tower – Little Sisters of Eluria (Short Story)

He plans to eventually buy another horse, or perhaps a mule, which ties in with the events at the beginning of The Dark Tower: It can be read as a stand alone or as an addition to the Dark Tower quest, for those who already read the big series. Roland also meets Sister Jenna who is beautiful and doesn’t look to be hiding her true form. I think it is a good primer as to the lyrical styling in the series.

All in all, though, a very good issue, with great art and a good story based very closely on the original King story.

The Little Sisters of Eluria/Chapter One

The sisters, kept at bay by his Jesus-man medallion, were intriguing characters, with Jenna as the hero. What I can say, though, is that my initial assessment is that Ross’s style is a bit less realistic, and a bit more patently comic-booky, than Jae Lee’s style.

Or, if you don’t want to resort to font tricks, you can just use a sisteers point of view.

As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with elueia occasional boost from a short story sale to men’s magazines. Then again, given the omniscience of the comics’ narrator, it seems both permissible and even appropriate for the story to step outside of Roland’s ken once in a while.

The Little Sisters of Eluria by Stephen King

A decent amount of the blame for that probably ought to be placed at the feet of Sean Elura, who was the penciller on “The Journey Begins.


Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men’s magazines. Roland’s wounds are eventually healed, but he is powerless to escape from his malevolent benefactors, who keep him weakened with potions. I can’t wait for more tower sisgers. I recommend reading it after Book IV. Chronologically, the story within takes place before the events of the Dark Tower Series – though after the story of Roland Deschain ‘s past he recounts in Wizard and Glass.

Carpenter rated it it was amazing Shelves: Let’s move on to opinions, which are like facts, only slightly more prone to serve as troll-bait.

Usually, short stories that are part of a big saga universe are lacking something. Does the decision sacrifice more of the mystery than it ought? After all Desperation indicates that the unformed ones are a whole race, not just one being. I wished I wud have read it earlier. The next night, Roland and Sister Jenna initiate their escape, but the other Sisters try to stop them.

Jenna tells Roland that the plave he is in, is not a covenant, but a hospital.

She is his salvation.
