Rating: 5/5 stars
This is the eighth book in the Dark Tower Graphic novel series. I think this was one of my favorite books of this series, along with the Little Sisters of Eluria.
In this book our Gunslinger goes to the town of Tull where he meets the disfigured Allie. While there he is delivered an ominous message from a dead man named Nort. Shortly after receiving the message he finds out that The Man in Black has already planted his evil seeds and left a trap for Roland.
I vaguely remember some of the town in Tull from when I read the original Dark Tower books. I really enjoyed this story and how it continues to show our gritty and hardened Gunslinger in all his gun totting glory.
The illustration is full color and absolutely top notch, I loved it a lot. I enjoyed the characters we met here; from the disfigured and sad Allie to the creepy old dead Nort.
There’s a lot of action and violence and Roland’s long journey to the Tower continues.
Overall a fantastic continuation of this series. I really enjoyed it. I love the illustration, the characters, the setting and the wonderful action scenes. I would definitely recommend this whole series to those who love dark fantasy graphic novels.
