I love these graphic novels. The Dark Tower epic is my favorite fiction, and Roland one of my favorite characters. Besides the beautiful graphics, this take on the source material fleshes out the legend by offering a new look at experiences King's "Constant Reader" knows about, but never actually "saw" through King's storytelling.
They give the reader the opportunity to look in on Roland as a young man, some might even say as a boy, in a way that, of the source material, only Wizard and Glass sought to achieve. They are also great for offering to a friend to get them hooked on the Gunslinger without them committing to a 7 book, several thousand page series. If you like graphic novels, epic tales of good vs.
Wonderful illustrations, they truly help give reading the stories a new meaning. It is great to get a deeper behind the scenes view of the DT series, on to the next book in the series! This series just keeps getting better and better. Richard Isanove may not be the producer of fine art that Jae Lee is, but his renderings of young Roland, Cuthbert, Alain, and Aileen are less the static images that Lee's interpretations are.

Still, a lot of the sound effects that are labeled are in tiny print, and are thus underwhelming. Yet the complaints about the artwork are minor when compared to the story. Being a longtime Dark Tower junkie I can honestly say that these stories written by Peter David and Robin Furth rival the original stories set down by Stephen King especially the last three entries in the cycle. Familiar characters are treated with the respect they deserve, especially in this most darkest of chapters when the light of their world goes out forever.
Although the tragedy can be appreciated by anyone, it is the longtime readers that feel the impact of the loss more clearly. This would not be the case but for David's superb scripting, written in his hard-bitten, melancholic prose which plainly illustrates the heartache these characters feel. The only place where it falls short is the climatic battle scene; what would have been rendered in fifty or so pages in prose is detailed in a few quick pages.
It's just that now, more than ever, one wishes that the end could have been prolonged just a little bit more, if only to enjoy the shining world of Gilead just a little bit longer.

I had to wait a full year since "Treachery" before I could get my hands on this one. And the wait was worth it! The Fall of Gilead is, so far, the best volume of the series.

The Good -Brilliant art The art in the entire series has been awesome, but this volume stands out. Some of the panels, the way they were framed, the colors Every tragic death scene is horribly memorable Roland holding his deceased mother, bleeding Cort in his bed, Vannay and Dr.
DeCurry, just to name a few and Farson's massive army truly instills a feeling of hopelessness. Most importantly and noticeably in this volume were the character's faces. A few panels, such as Roland in the jail cell or Sheemie The same hopeless feeling, the intensity, the race against time, all of the right elements are there. Especially after "Treachery", The Fall of Gilead cranks the intensity up to eleven.
There is so much here, so many familiar names, Arthur Eld himself even makes an appearance! This volume made me realize how much I like Cort. I love the additions to the universe as well, most notably Alieen. The Bad -So many people die They changed the artist. This series is being written by Robin Furth, not Stephen King, which creates an understandable bit of confusion as to what is official Dark Tower canon and what is not although King does give his approval to the series and I'm sure he's involved in the production somehow.
Maybe, I just need to go back and reread the original novels, but I seem to remember Steven Deschain and his ka-tet dying differently than is being presented in the Fall of Gilead. That could just be me though. This is, in some ways, entirely new territory for Dark Tower fans.
The story being explored here is merely referenced in Wolves of the Calla, when Roland recounts his mother's fate, and cryptically mentions the Battle of Jericho Hill that claimed the lives of his friends Alain and Cuthbert.

Here, we see what happens as events unfold in Gilead and learn a good deal about the most eventful and meaningful formative experiences in Roland's life: the death of his father, his ascension to dinh, and his failure to protect his father's city, the city of Arthur Eld, and his friends from John Farson and the Man in Black. Let's face it though: Furth is not Stephen King, and though she tries to emulate him in box narration "do ya kennit?
The artwork in this volume leaves much to be desired, and it's fantastically gory the death of Cort is gruesome to say the least. For more on Dark Tower , please visit StephenKing.
