**UPDATE** I returned my original damaged copy to Amazon and had a brand new perfect copy in my hands within 48 hours.Read more ›
Unfortunately Amazon decided to ship this 11 pound tome in a box with absolutely no padding whatsoever. The 2nd day air box showed up at the door with the seams splitting. The plastic wrap was rubbed through in places and the set's slipcover is crushed on all 8 corners and seriously scuffed. The books themselves only took damage on the spine. I can't imagine what shape this book is showing up in for deliveries via ground service.
Now you can't even return it to Amazon for a replacement.
For now I'll hold off on returning it to see if Amazon fixes the packaging and I can get an exchange, but if not I guess I'll just miss out on this one.
What a shame.
The contents of the first book are fairly straight forward; it contains all the material that was previously published in graphic novel form in the first five graphic novels that Marvel has released of the Dark Tower series: Gunslinger Born, Long Road Home, Treachery, Fall of Gilead, and the Battle of Jericho.
The second volume in the set collects all the material that has previously been left out of the graphic novel releases of the Dark Tower. Each of the original comics featured a chapter of the story and then a brief essay on Roland's world by Robin Furth. This volume collects these essays together for the first time. Also collected for the first time are the Gunslingers Guidebook, the End-World Almanac, the Guide to Gilead, Marvel Spotlight: Dark Tower, and the Dark Tower Sketch book. Added to this are more than a hundred pages of sketches with commentary.
Pros of the Collection: It has everything that was written, drawn, and published up to the end of Jericho Hill. It is beautifully bound and collected. The companion volume gives relatively easy access to material that would otherwise have required you to remove a comic from its bag and board to re-read. The companion volume will be completely new to any readers who didn't collect the series in comic book form but only collected the graphic novels.
Cons: This doesn't make for a very convenient way to re-read the comic books. Certainly, more convenient than removing a comic book from a bag and board but nowhere near the portability of the other graphic novel releases.Read more ›
Amazon seems to have listened to the reviewers here as they shipped mine completely wrapped in at least 6 feet of bubble wrap. I had a rather large order, consisting of 3 other hardcovers and two large metal dishes, and this was the only item in the box to be wrapped up. Sadly, the spine of the slipcase suffered some creasing. I can't fault Amazon as they obviously tried their best. This is simply too large, and heavy, of a book to be protected in today's means of shipping. My best advice would be to track this beast of beauty down in a retail store if you are looking for a mint copy. Then again, Amazon's price is hard to beat!
