5.0 out of 5 stars Marvel surpasses itself with The Dark Tower, 20 Aug. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Tower: The Battle Of Jericho Hill Premiere HC (Hardcover)
Volume Five of Marvel's Dark Tower series is the latest in the series. As an aside, I strongly suggest the buyer invest in the first four volumes all available at Amazon and at reasonable prices. As a collection of hardback graphic novels, Peter David and Robin Furth's interpretation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower can only be described as quite remarkable. Accompanied with artwork from Jae Lee and Richard Isanove the overall presentation of the story is quite outstanding. Fans of Stephen King will find these volumes true to the original story and I suggest they should be read slowly and the artwork appreciated as the story progresses.
Unlike some recent graphic novels from Marvel (eg Vampire Tales), this graphic novel retains the original size of the partwork publication and the covers of the mini series are beautifully re-presented at the back of the volume. The book is wrapped in cellophane and has a wonderfully painted dust cover.

I'm not sure if you meant "last in the series" as "newest" 5-issue volume, but just to clarify, there is at least one additional arc after Jericho Hill, called "The Gunslinger - The Journey Begins".
It has officially seen its first issue on May 19th and is supposed to last, at least according to an unconfirmed wikipedia article, through September 15th. This looks legit, as it would be in accordance with the monthly release plan of past issues.

Announcement of the first issue:

Wikipedia article for the whole arc:

All the best!

Thanks for the update and yes you are correct that there is another hardback edition due for release on 26 January 2011 from Marvel through Amazon. The Gunslinger - The Journey Begins takes place 12 years after the Battle of Jericho Hill.
I apologise for the error and based it on the info on the back of Battle of Jericho Hill which read: "The Dark Tower's thirty-issue run concludes with a final showdown between darkness and light at Jericho Hill." Teach me to believe all what I read on the cover of a book...hahaha
