4.0 out of 5 stars The Battle of Jericho Hill 17 Aug 2010
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This is the fifth book in the Marvel Dark Tower series so far, brilliantly scripted by Peter David and illustrated in full colour by Richard Isanove and Jae Lee. The plot doesn't have the same depth as the original books, but nothing significant is left out. This book collects the 5 issues of the Battle of Jericho Hill in their entirety and features the covers of the original issues in the back of the book.

It has been nine years since the Gilead was overthrown by the Crimson King and slow mutants have claimed the ruins for their own. Thrown out into the wastes, whats left of the Affiliation of Gunslingers have regrouped and begun training new recruits, raising an army to shake off the oppresion of mid-world by John Farsion's faction. Treachery is afoot amongst the Gunslingers and when mid-world is shaken by the breaking of a beam that holds the fabric of reality together, it strengthens Roland's resolve to reach the Dark Tower and end the Crimson King's reign of terror.

Graphic novels in the series so far - in order;
Gunslinger Born #1
The Long Road Home #2
Treachery #3
The Fall Of Gilead #4

Excellent animation with a story that really draws you in - although newcomers to this graphic novel series will want to begin at the start. The reason I have only given this 4 stars and not the universal 5 star reviews this series receives is that in this particular instalment there is not a great deal of story progession at all. Still recommended!!

I love the way the comics, I now have up to the one following this one in the series, cover the time leading up to the start of the books. The art work is superb and the the story moves along at a pace. I find, once I start one, I can't put it down till I've finished it.

Another great touch is the way the fill in text talks to you direct, not just an anootation explaining an event or bridge from one scene to the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars When Gilead falls 1 May 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
In the comic books adapted from Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, Gilead has been crumbling away for a long time now... but it's still a wrench when it's gone. And in "Dark Tower: The Battle of Jericho Hill," we see what is left after it falls -- a wrenching bloody battle, a bleak rotted world, and the strength of a young man who loses everything.

Gilead is gone forever, Midworld is "dying," and the only remnants of it are Roland Deschain and his ragtag ka-tet. Roland's plan: to reach the legendary Dark Tower and use its power "to set things aright," by following the Beam. And nine years later, Roland and the ka-tet reunite on Gilead's ruins, and form a half-hidden rebellion bent on bringing down Farson.

But he is not the only danger to them -- slow mutants, crazy cults, bandits. Worst of all, one of Roland's men has been blackmailed into a treacherous pact with Walter O'Dim, and for the sake of his child he has turned against his own friends. And at long last, the battle comes to the ka-tet at Jericho Hill...

There's a line in the fourth chapter that sums up this entire comic book -- "Sometimes you think you see the light, and you think the dawn is coming... and so you don't realize that, in fact, the darkness is laughing at you because it knows it's closing it." At first it seems like the worst is behind Roland and Co., and there might even be a small sliver of hope.

But of course, anyone who knows what's ahead for Roland knows what will happen in this story. Using King's book as source material, Robin Furth produces four chapters of Robin-Hoodesque fighting and training in secret, and a fifth chapter that is the stuff of Shakespearean tragedy -- murky, blood-spattered battles in which Roland loses even more people that he loves.
