Simon & Schuster's Gallery 13 imprint has acquired the rights to the comic book adaptations of Stephen King's The Dark Tower previously published by Marvel Comics. First reported by Entertainment Weekly, the new editions are scheduled to begin this fall with The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born in August.

“I’m delighted to see my stories in this exciting format, where they can reach new readers,” King said in a statement.

Marvel published adaptations and ancilliary material of King's The Dark Tower from 2007 to 2017, collected into over a dozen trade paperback and hardcover editions.

According to EW, Gallery 13 will publish the "Beginnings" part of The Dark Tower twice-monthly starting with The Gunslinger is Born. In spring 2019, they plan to begin republishing The Gunslinger volumes.
