I was hooked from the first page and got through the whole book in a sitting.
Rob Parker
The Battle of Jericho Hill is the fifth series of Marvel's Dark Tower comics, and it's my favorite one since the first.
J. Hill
The story was disappointingly thin, and at times the dialogue was trying to get too "cute" for its own good.

I pre-ordered this 5 months before it was available for sale. As soon as I received it I opened my Amazon package and read the whole thing. I thought this was another great chapter of the Dark Tower saga. As the entire DT story goes it's not the typical western, sci-fi, adventure, action, drama, so on type of story and it's best attributes are it's flawed characters, deep seeded story line, the underlying community feeling, gritty reality, and fearless dives into the tumultuous world of Mid-World. This chapter did not disappoint in the least. I immediately pre-ordered the next hardcover bound edition to come out in January 2011 and can't wait to see it's interpretation and continuation of the story. I'm just waiting for the DT graphic novel that ends with the words "the man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed" to truly cap off a great adventure!

This volume felt a little anti-climatic. The previous volume was brilliant and a real sense of significance and urgency came across well. This one is a little bit of a let down. The plot is practically the same as the others in terms of a hero is blackmailed into helping the villains. Also, I'm not so sure how Roland survives at the end. The art is very good & approporiate though. I'm still looking forward to the next volume but I hope it picks up again.

Format: Hardcover
The Battle of Jericho Hill is the fifth series of Marvel's Dark Tower comics, and it's my favorite one since the first. The previous few have drifted farther and farther from Stephen King's novels, fleshing out Roland's past by elaborating on fragments of ideas from the books. This series might have been King's baby, as he mentioned in interviews that one of the first things he imagined when approached by Marvel about the project was his desire to see this very battle illustrated. Set nine years after Gilead's fall to John Farson, Roland and his fellow gunslingers have an encampment at Jericho Hill, but are beset by Farson after being betrayed by a gunslinger named Randolph. As written in King's books, Alain is gunned down by Roland and Cuthbert, Cuthbert is killed after being shot through the eye, and a gravely injured Roland is left for dead after the massacre. In addition, some key plot holes are filled in, one when Marten transforms into Walter, who himself takes the disguise of a monk, revealing clearly that all of these characters are one and the same. King never really comes flat out and states this quite as directly as it is in this series. Also, Roland proclaims at one point that he and his ka-tet will pursue Marten to punish him for his hand in all of the death and destruction, which includes a Beam that was damaged when Gilead fell. Roland vows that they will reach the Dark Tower, and demand a restoration of all that has been lost. These statements are the clearest declarations of Roland's intents and motivations ever articulated. The book has its flaws, usually stemming from added characters or corny narration, but with The Battle of Jericho Hill, the good far outweighs the bad.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We faithful readers of the Dark Tower books have always wondered about the battle of Jericho Hill, which was mentioned many times in the novels but never gone into in depth. What we did know was that this was a climactic battle, and the forces of evil defeated the dedicated band of gunslingers, leaving only Roland to survive. There was also mention of the horn of Arthur Eld, without more explanation. This excellent graphic novel fills in the details of this sad portion of the Dark Tower saga.

Once again we have excellent scripting and tremendous artistry combined to present to the reader a complete and engrossing book, even if we are not pleased with how the plot goes. It's compelling and, as usual with these works, the reader is hooked from the first page and just goes through the whole book in one sitting.

It's a work that should satisfy even the most rabid King fan, and it gives us the background knowledge to more fully understand the Dark Tower mythology. I assumed that this book would take us to the beginning of the first Dark Tower novel, but I see now that is not the case. That being said, prepare for further volumes in this timeless tale that will eventually take us to when "the man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed".

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 17, 2010
Format: Hardcover
In the comic books adapted from Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series, Gilead has been crumbling away for a long time now... but it's still a wrench when it's gone. And in "Dark Tower: The Battle of Jericho Hill," we see what is left after it falls -- a wrenching bloody battle, a bleak rotted world, and the strength of a young man who loses everything.

Gilead is gone forever, Midworld is "dying," and the only remnants of it are Roland Deschain and his ragtag ka-tet. Roland's plan: to reach the legendary Dark Tower and use its power "to set things aright," by following the Beam. And nine years later, Roland and the ka-tet reunite on Gilead's ruins, and form a half-hidden rebellion bent on bringing down Farson.

But he is not the only danger to them -- slow mutants, crazy cults, bandits. Worst of all, one of Roland's men has been blackmailed into a treacherous pact with Walter O'Dim, and for the sake of his child he has turned against his own friends. And at long last, the battle comes to the ka-tet at Jericho Hill...

There's a line in the fourth chapter that sums up this entire comic book -- "Sometimes you think you see the light, and you think the dawn is coming... and so you don't realize that, in fact, the darkness is laughing at you because it knows it's closing it." At first it seems like the worst is behind Roland and Co., and there might even be a small sliver of hope.

But of course, anyone who knows what's ahead for Roland knows what will happen in this story. Using King's book as source material, Robin Furth produces four chapters of Robin-Hoodesque fighting and training in secret, and a fifth chapter that is the stuff of Shakespearean tragedy -- murky, blood-spattered battles in which Roland loses even more people that he loves.
