Where [b:The Gunslinger Born|342445|Dark Tower The Gunslinger Born|Stephen King|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1173898471s/342445.jpg|2402933] follows Roland's gunslinger apprenticeship pretty faithfully to King's original telling, The Long Road Home traverses a previously uncharted portion of the gunslinger's tale. Namely, it tells of the journey--nay, flight--of Roland and his friends from Hambry back to Gilead.

I like the story for two main reasons (other than simply being a new story). Foremost, I like it because ultimately it is more a story about the other members of Roland's ka-tet - Cuthbert and Alain - than Roland himself. This is primarily because Roland is unconscious for most of the trip. But don't worry, Roland does make appearances in the story, because as anyone who has ever read a King story knows, "unconscious" does not mean "inactive."

Secondly, I liked the story because it has one of the few genuinely happy endings in the gunslinger oeuvre. Well, mostly happy, since anyone who has read through the rest of the oeuvre knows what's yet to come; but still, it's purt'near as close to a happy ending to a gunslinger story as you'll ever run across. And sometimes you just damn well need a happy ending. ( )

It's funny, as I read this, I was thinking to myself, "Why don't I remember this from the books?" Well, I guess that's because Stephen King did not write this! And it shows! I love Roland, and I loved his ka-tet (Cuthbert and Alain), and I really wanted to like this graphic novel. And it looks great too! But the story is very muddled, and, for me, it did not add anything to the DT tale. The whole Sheemie subplot completely baffled me! It wasn't a long read, but it wasn't really worth it either. ( )

There is so much to love in these Dark Tower comics, and while I've only read two at this point, the artwork is absolutely brilliant. Shocking, evocative, colorful, crazy, and simply gorgeous.

The stories have so far retold and filled in aspects of Dark Tower #4, Wizard and Glass, which is Roland's young days and his initial tragedies, but I should point out that there is MORE story and less. Aspects are filled in that are freaking amazing while a lot of the palaver and mystery from the original book are streamlined nicely in the comic. :)

That's all great. No problems here. I would, however, recommend reading these AFTER you've read the original books. The spoilers are mild for the most part, EXCEPT in one specific way.

After the comic, proper, there are short stories. These shorts carry us back to the days of Eld and give us a glorious look into Arthur, his Ka-Tet, the birth of the Crimson King, and even some rather fantastic insights into the North Central Positronics Corporation. The bestiaries are quite nice, too. :) In other words, we are glutted with great information. It really DEEPENS your understanding of King's worlds. :)

I am tempted to say that these extras are somehow more important and impressive than the glorious artwork. ( )

The second volume of The Dark Tower graphic novel series is as visually stunning as the first, but I felt the story quality was slightly below that of the first volume.

Our boy Sheemie, after his transformation:



It's a real treat to see the artist's renderings of these characters, but it's even better to see the settings and the Crimson King. There is so much detail in the art, that I could gaze at these images for hours and never get bored.

Sheemie is a badass now:

Based on the two volumes I've read of this series so far? I'm in love with Jae Lee and believe that he's a comic God.

That is all.

You can buy your copy by clinking the link below, or you can check your local libraries as I have. Either way I highly recommend this series!

There's a lot to love about this series. Cuthbert and Alain are some of my all-time favorite series characters and seeing new adventures with them is always a treat. Moreover, though, it's really illuminating to see what Roland looked like in his younger days, to see him capable of forming and enjoying connections with others. It makes it that much more powerful when you see him start to lose his heart and humanity, and there's something sad but comforting about the fact that his friends are mourning that along with you, the reader. This was a fantastic addition to the story, and Peter David's writing is absolutely on point. ( )

It's a truism that to have a great super hero comic, you need a great villain.
In a world that has moved on Roland Deschain was goaded by his father's enemies into facing his coming-of-age battle early earning the title of Gunslinger at the unheard-of age of fourteen.
