The producer of 300 and The Dark Knight, Thomas Tull, The Tower Chronicles is a collective title from Legendary Entertainment that is made up of three separate books, making up a trilogy. The first of which will be written by Matt Wagner. Recently announced at San Diego Comic Con, the publisher revealed that a second title, “Shadow Walk”, will be co-written by Mark Waid and Max Brooks (writer of World War Z), taking place in the same universe. Unfortunately, you have to wait until 2013 for that one. Below you can check out a lengthy preview of “The Tower Chronicles” which is due out in September.
