“The saga continues and so does my enjoyment of them. The story has serious undertones and overtones, let’s just say for a graphic novel the plotline makes you think a little more than the average good guy /bad guy thing. Roland, the youngest gunslinger, continues to be tested as he tries to navigate through Mid-World to reach the fulcrum of existence –The Dark Tower. I am going to put the rest of the post into the hands of Mr. Ralph Macchio, and give you a piece of his intro into the graphic novel. His words are to the point and hit every nail on the head :
“I think with this hardcover collection the Constant Reader should pause and reflect on the nature of the protagonist Stephen King has so brilliantly conceived. What manner of man could not be broken by all that has happened to him in the space of but a few years? Are these tests or trails some higher has doomed necessary to determine if Roland has the strength of character to pursue the Dark Tower quest to its unknown conclusion? Future volumes may tell the tale.
Roland Deschain is a fascinating character rich with potential and contradiction. His journey toward the ultimate truth of existence is one of the more compelling in popular literature. “
That was a mouth full, but well put. Have you read the novel or followed the graphic novels as I am now? Maybe you have read both. What are your thoughts on the words of Mr. Macchio? Point on or was he missing something? I only left out what I thought would be spoilers for the story.

“Another wonderful addition to the Dark Tower books. (If you look closely, you'll see "Easter Eggs" from Stephen King's other works, like the clown from It, etc)”Sandi wrote this review Saturday, June 26, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“After a couple of volumes that didn't really do anything for me, this volume really upped the ante. We get the forces of Farson attacking Gilead, heroes fall and just a lot of story development. Very good.”JimYung wrote this review Monday, May 10, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“An excellent GN, that stands on it's own, or if you are a fan of the Dark Tower novels, it fills in the back story incredibly well. And, it gives us a clear idea of how Roland became who he is in the novels. Wonderful artwork, although I wasn't too excited by the cover.”Kevin L wrote this review Friday, February 26, 2010.
