The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger -The Little Sisters of Eluria
Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - The Little Sisters of Eluria #5 (of 5) - Robin Furth,Peter David,Stephen King,Luke Ross,Richard Isanove

 

This was a disappointing foray into a side story of the Dark Tower.

 

What I liked about it was its connection to King/Straub's novel, The Talisman. (Which is one of my favorite books.) If you've read it, you know that young Jack is trying to save his mom, (who is a Queen in another world), and she is very sick. When we first meet her, she is in a huge tent, fighting for her life. That huge tent is the main setting for this story. (A nice explanation of this comes in the foreword.)

 

This tale comes before the last entry in the graphic novel series, so we've gone backwards a bit in the timeline. I was okay with that but I'm not really okay with the change in how Roland looks and the artwork. While I loved the pencil drawings in the back, Roland looks like an entirely different person than in all the previous comics. I am having a hard time dealing with that. I think that the graphics in the previous novels are superior than the ones in this volume.

 

Overall, I liked the story and the setting, just not as much as the previous entries in this series.

The Dark Tower: Battle of Jericho Hill by Robin Firth, Peter David, Richard Isanove
The Dark Tower, Volume 5: Battle of Jericho Hill - Peter David,Stephen King,Richard Ianove,Jae Lee,Robin Furth

This was another beautiful installment in the Dark Tower series. The artwork is stunning, even though I am missing Jae Lee.

 

 

Taking place 9 years after the fall of Gilead, we pick up the ka-tet attempting to stand against the forces of evil at Jericho Hill. This is where it all happens, (no spoilers), and I'll admit it brought a tear to this cold heart.

 

I can't wait for the next one! (Thanks to my local library, I don't have to!)

The Dark Tower: The Long Road Home by Robin Furth, Peter David, & Jae Lee
The Dark Tower, Volume 2: The Long Road Home - Peter David,Stephen King,Richard Ianove,Jae Lee,Robin Furth

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!

The Dark Tower, Volume 1: The Gunslinger Born by Peter David, Robin Furth & Jae Lee
The Dark Tower, Volume 1: The Gunslinger Born - Richard Isanove,Jae Lee,Robin Furth,Peter David,Stephen King

 

 

 

I absolutely adored this graphic novel. The artwork was STUNNING!

 

It seems that the graphic novels tell the story quite differently than the books do. Having just listened to most of The Dark Tower: Wizard and Glass, the story of Susan Delgado and Rhea of Coos is still fresh in my mind. Their stories are told here, in Volume 1 of the GN series.I can't wait to read the next one!

You can get your stunningly beautiful Kindle copy here:

Deadlands: Dead Man's Hands by David Gallaher, Jeff Mariotte and Various Authors & Artists
Deadlands: Dead Man's Hand - Brook Turner,Ulises Roman,David Gallaher,Shane Hensley,Lee Moder,Bart Sears,Matthew Cutter,Justin Gray,Jeff Mariotte,Ron Marz,Sean Lee,Jimmy Palmiotti,Steve Ellis,Various

 

Deadlands is an absolute blast of a graphic novel!

 

Featuring a plethora of authors, including Jeff Mariotte and David Gallaher, (the two I'm already familiar with and the reason I purchased this volume), these stories range from horror western to steampunk laboratory fun. There's some cool stuff called Ghost Rock and even some magic.

 

I really dug the artwork, especially in the first story The Devil's Six Gun, (which I've also reviewed separately.) The way the skulls were worked into a lot of the panels in that tale worked well for me. In fact, the overall style of all the artwork throughout the entire graphic novel appealed to me.

 

(That's the Devil's Six Gun up there.)

 

I read this on my Kindle Fire with the Comixology app and it worked beautifully, (in case anyone is wondering or worried about how this comes across on a Fire).

 

This series has something to do with a video game of the same name. I am not a gamer and I have no answers as to how this relates to the game, if it's even the same world, or anything else at all game related.

 

I will say that I loved this mash up of the horror/western/steampunk genres and I plan to read more of them because they're a boatload of fun!
