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!

The content of this illustrated book is very good, following the treasured Dark Tower story of Stephen King. Unfortunately, there are pages I can't read because the pages are too small on my Android tablet. Those I can read are wonderful. There is no sizing ability that I can find for the pages except for font size, which has no effect on images such as these.

I tried to bring this book up on my computer with the Kindle app thinking it might be large enough to read all the pages, however, I simply received an error saying it couldn't load this format. It's possible that an authentic Kindle tablet would allow re-sizing, however I can't verify that.

I love the Dark Tower story well enough that I don't regret purchasing these books but it would be helpful if all the pages were readable.

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 ›

it gives us the background knowledge to more fully understand the Dark Tower mythology, particularly the Battle of Jericho which has many references throughout the series but little explanation until now. An emotional journey that fills in the details of this sad part of the D.T. Saga

This is the fifth book in the eleven book graphic novel series based on the Dark Tower books by Stephen King. This was an excellent installment in the series and moves the story along quite a bit.

Years have passed and Roland and his ka-tet have struggled to move on from Gilead and search out the Dark Tower. Just as things are looking interesting and Roland is preparing to take a stand against Farland, a traitor in their midst ruins all. This is the end of one era and the beginning of another.

I really enjoyed all the mythos about the Dark Tower and how its supports echo throughout the world. I also enjoyed all the action and fighting in this volume (there is quite a bit of it).

That being said this is probably the goriest and most depressing of the volumes yet. Although I was happy to see that Aileen was back in fighting style in this book and more than holding her own with her Gunslinging abilities.

Roland and his ka-tet are truly destroyed by a traitor in their midst and it is absolutely the end of an era. It leaves me very curious to see where the next volume will pick up.

I continue to really enjoy the detailed and full color illustration in this graphic novel series. These have been very well done.

Overall this was a well done continuation of this gritty western fantasy set in a post-apocalyptic type of world. I enjoyed the expanded mythos around the Dark Tower and am curious as to what the next volume will hold for us. I would recommend this graphic novel series to fans of dark fantasy.
