The Battle of Jericho Hill,
This review is from: Dark Tower: The Battle Of Jericho Hill Premiere HC (Dark Tower (Marvel Comics)) (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
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!!
