5.0 out of 5 stars Gilead's fall 17 May 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The young gunslinger will soon embark on his world-spanning quest to destroy his sorcerous nemesis... and Gilead is definitely doomed.

The graphic novel prequel of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series grinds toward its inevitable end... and as Gilead and everyone in it is about to crumble, the story takes on the harrowing dimensions of a Greek tragedy. "The Dark Tower: The Fall of Gilead" is filled with blood, tragic deaths, treachery, and evil magic -- and it's a truly brilliant story.

Roland wakes to find that he's killed his own mother under the Grapefruit's spell. Even though it's found that she was a traitor planning to kill her husband, he's faced with the gallows. But it isn't the last death that will tear Gilead apart -- Cort's investigations in Marten's room leads to tragedy when he's exposed to a poisoned book, and another of Stephen's ka-tet falls to the Slow Mutants.

As Marten's web begins to tighten around the city, others fall prey to John Farson's plots and die terrible, bloody deaths -- and Stephen Deschain is gravely wounded in an ambush. Roland and his young friends are called upon to save Gilead from the traitors that riddle its population... but they cannot prevent the death from spreading to even the most invincible gunslinger.

"Dark Tower: The Fall of Gilead" is like tumbling down a steep, rocky mountain covered with briars and thistles -- everything just goes downhill, and there's a lot of blood, pain, misery and death. Reading this comic book is a pretty painful experience because our callow young gunslinger is slowly losing everything and everyone that he loves, and the worst part is that there are a few more issues to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark chapter in the Dark Tower saga. 4 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
I'm a huge Dark Tower fan, having read all of Stephen King's seven-novel epic, as well as the previous Marvel collections. I'd say this graphic series is getting better as it goes along - the first collection (which essentially covers Roland's adventures in Mejis from book 4, 'Wizard & Glass') I didn't really enjoy aside from the art work, but since then Marvel has covered parts of the Dark Tower saga which aren't covered in the books (or only hinted at), and both the telling and the artwork have gotten better and better.

I won't tell you what happens in 'The Fall of Gilead', but I will tell you that it continues the trend of the collections getting better. The story is pretty much what you'd expect, but some of the artwork is amazing, and you'll be itching to discover how the story pans out in the next collection, which is the series finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars The sorcerer 16 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover
On receiving the book I realized there was a story between the Dark Tower: Treachery and The Fall Of Gilead called the Sorcerer, on braking the seal on the book I found that this story is included in this book, to which I was very pleased as the Sorcerer is very hard to find and expensive, the graphic novels are very good and fill in some of the blanks from the Dark Tower saga they are a must have for all Stephen King/Dark Tower fans

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story 8 April 2011
By Portent
Format:Hardcover
This is the ongoing trials of Roland and his friends. Without writing a spoiler let me say that this continues the epic story of Roland's search for the Dark Tower and is the best epic of all time. The story is originally taken from Stephen King's series of books ' The Dark Tower', and if you've not read them, then do!
