So this is the second collection in Marvel's graphic novel adaptation of King's Dark Tower series. While I LOVE reading about Roland again, and the art work is gorgeous, I'm deeply conflicted as well. There's something here that isn't quite working for me, that seems off. I think the problem is that I'm comparing it to the source material too much, when I should be enjoying the work as its own unique experience (like a film adaptation).

It's also very much focused on young Roland. And I guess th
Eh , ovdje već susrećemo nepoznatu priču iz DT serijala,priča nakon Mejisa i nešto što je promjenilo Rolanda zauvijek.

Fini mračni crteži , priča je sasvim uredu i mnooogo prelijepih citata.
This is the second graphic novel to feature young Roland and his ka-tet, which I found to be not as good as the first one, THE GUNSLINGER BORN.

Allow me to elucidate. The story starts off strong, Roland peers into Maerlyn's Grapefruit, sees something he disagrees with and then shoots the pink orb. Bad move on Roland's part. The orb transmogrifies and becomes an eye with tentacles, sucking Roland's soul into its surreal End-World pit. Okay, this is all wicked. I hardly even took the time to really

This continues directly on from the graphic novel The Dark Tower Volume 1 The Gunslinger Born. Roland and his Katet are pursued by the Big Coffin Hunters and their posse after destroying the oil fields that Farson wanted for his war.

In the main series, Wizard and Glass, Roland looks into the pink looking glass and is changed, but we don't really know exactly what he sees. Well, this fills that gap. We also get more of Sheemie's story and the role he plays while Roland's mind is imprisoned in the

I was killing some time at a Barnes & Nobles bookstore the other day and picked this graphic novel up. I’m a sucker for anything dealing with Roland the Gunslinger, especially back story regarding his younger years, so I figured this was a “can’t miss” for me. Unfortunately, I was wrong.

The story itself begins right after the death of Susan Delgado, as told so hauntingly by Roland the Gunslinger in “Wizard and Glass,” Dark Tower IV. Here, an emotiona

The first entry in this series took Stephen King’s Wizard and Glass and converted it to the graphic novel format. That was a huge success, and The Long Road Home takes the next step by carrying the Dark Tower story into unknown territory. Writer Robin Furth fills in the white space following Roland’s adventures in Mejis, inventing a new story about Roland and his Ka-Tet as they fight their way back home to Gilead. The gunslingers deal with external dangers, while Roland battles the internal demo ...more
I love the Dark Tower series - let me just say that up front. If you haven't read it, you should. When I haven't read it in a while, I miss the characters, I miss the journey, I miss Mid-world. It's King's magnum opus for a reason, and I cherish every word.

I was a bit disappointed with The Gunslinger Born, the first of the series of Dark Tower graphic novels, simply because I was looking for something to add to what we already knew of Roland's journey, and the first graphic novel didn't do that
2015- There is no denying the loveliness of the art work here, even the Criy, oh why did Lee decide to draw Susan as a 70's disco rollergirl? That small complaint aside, I feel these GNs really explain the orbs in a more elaborate way because of the visuals than the novels did.

2008-I'm not sure that the characters are depicted quite the way I pictured them in my mind, but they are very good renditions. Good enough not to detract from the story. I was a little put off by the speech patterns in t
And so the sage continues - I will admit that the story kicks off right after the conclusion (and shocking that it was) first volume. Now I know that sounds obvious but I am still finding my feet with graphic novels especially ones which not only have a strong story arc but in fact rely on it.
The events portrayed in the book take part over a relatively short period of time - which suggests that unless this is a one off there will be plenty of action and plenty of material. The artwork as ever i

The thing with licensed comics was that most comic publishers tend to give it to their not quite A-List creators because they didn't want to pay premium money on talent especially if they've shelled out for the license. It wasn't the case here. Marvel put one of its best writers in Peter David and a magnificent art team in Jae Lee and Richard Isanove for the first two volumes of its The Dark Tower prequels.

I just finished the second volume and it made want to dig out my issues of the first arc s

This is the graphic novel I've been waiting for in regards to the Dark Tower series. It's the first book to delve into the events that happen between "Wizards and Glass" and "The Gunslinger" chronologically speaking.

The good news is that the dialogue is worlds improved in this installment. What amazed me about the first graphic novel was how ham-fisted King's folksy Mid-World dialogue sounded when it was left by itself in little bubbles. Now that Peter David is writing without the training wheel
NOTE: the first part of this review is about the series, in general, and the last part covers this particular volume.


I never got into the novel series but after reading this particular graphic novel I just might give it another try. This volume focuses on the Gunslinger before he became a legend in this post apocalyptic Spaghetti Western Fantasy tale. It covers the legends of his home realm life, how he earned his guns at an early age and his first missi
3.5 stars. A good but not great second installment of the Dark Tower graphic novel series that began with The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born, which I thought was superb. I was hoping for better in this installment as Peter David, who I like as a writer, finally got a chance to write new material into the Dark Tower story. While interesting, the story lacked the emotional resonance of the first installment. Overall, it was pretty good, just not quite good enough for me to rate higher.

I am a huge fan of the Dark Tower series and when I came across the graphic novels I had to see what they were all about. I wanted to jump back on the path of the beam and revisit old friends. Well, I got my wish.

This book picks up right after the events of The Dark Tower, Volume 1: The Gunslinger Born, and we see what happens to Roland, Alain, and Cuthbert as they travel home. For those who have read the Dark Tower series we know some of the events that happen to Roland as he heads home, but t
So, I was worried initially that these graphic novels would just be a condensed version of what happened in the books, but with pictures. Definitely not the case - this one showcased a story in Roland's past, immediately following the flashback events of Wizard and Glass, that was only ever hinted at in the books. Now we get to see it as it actually happened - I love it. It's new territory. Though I generally know the outcome, the story itself is fresh and exciting. After reading Wizard and Glas ...more
It's hard for me to review graphic novels, but I'm committed to having a review for everything I read, so I'm at least going to try...

This was a nice and enjoyable entry into the series. Where as the first in the series stuck to the plot we already know from Wizards and Glass, this ventures into the unknown and covers the events we didn't hear about that follow that story. I guess it's more like 3.5 stars rather than 4 four for me. I liked it a lot, and will continue in the series.. But it wasn
This is the 2nd book in the Dark Tower graphic novel series. There are a total of eleven books in this series. I didn’t like this book quite as much as the first book, but still really enjoyed the illustration throughout.

Roland, Cuthbert, and Alain are fleeing the Big Coffin Hunters in an effort to get home in one piece. However when Roland’s mind gets taken over by the big grapefruit-like globe that they stole from the Coffin Hunters he goes on a strange metaphysical journey of sorts. Meanwhile
Well, this was a disappointment.

Following directly on from the first book (which was itself a retelling of a story-within-the-story from Wizard and Glass, the fourth novel in Stephen King's The Dark Tower series) this volume attempts to continue beyond the boundaries set by King's original tale, and in doing so addresses a couple of questions that were never explained in the novels in any particular detail: What exactly happened to Roland that affected his humanity? How and why did Sheemie come

Its a graphic novel of the Dark Tower series... enough said.

For Dark Tower fans this book begins to chronicle the missing time in between Susan Delgado's death and Roland's first appearance in The Gunslinger. The editors admit that this story is completely original and much of the plot and dialogue was at best a "best guess" based on King's works, but King himself gave the gold stamp of approval. And the writers did an extremely good job of putting words into the character's mouths - I really think that's what King would have wrote for his characters. Th ...more

If you enjoyed King's Dark Tower book series, you need to give these Dark Tower graphic novels a try. I love them. Especially the stories about the early days. Well written and drawn.
Gustavo Nascimento
Por um lado é interessante por ser uma história original completando lacunas da saga dos livros, por outro lado essas lacunas não acrescentam muita coisa à saga. Outra coisa interessante é que como foi escrita quando o autor já sabia o final da saga, tudo parece mais bem "amarrado", com pistas de coisas que estão por vir. A arte continua muito boa.
Reprints Dark Tower: The Long Road Home #1-5. Roland, Cuthbert, and Alain flee Hambry after the murder of Susan and Roland is sucked into the Pink Grapefruit to face the Crimson King. This is the follow-up to The Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born. Unlike the first story, this book seems like filler. The confrontation with the Crimson King and the transformation of Sheemie seem to be the biggest things that occur but it took 5 issues to get there. The art however is great and the series does have a uni ...more

The art by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove is just as superb as it was for volume 1. I talked a good bit about the art in my review for The Dark Tower, Volume 1: The Gunslinger Born. If you want to see what I had to say, go check that out. This volume also has a bonus gallery of variant covers for each single issue. The highlights of these were Mike Deodato & Isanove's issue #1 and Lee Bermejo's issue #5. Since the creative team didn't change and neither did the quality of the art, I'm giving th ...more
The first Stephen King book I read. A SEQUEL! haha!

I have no idea what it's all about although I know Stephen King's pretty famous for horror and all that stuff I gave this one a shot since I've always wanted to read some of his works unknowingly...

What I first thought was the beginning was actually where the first book I guess left off, something about a grapefruit,manhunt,dream realm and a kid in a freak accident.

It was a bit weird but it was alright I kinda get the vibe and some bits of the s
Coming off of the retelling in comic form of Wizard and Glass, I wasn't sure what to expect here.

It jumps right into the fray, showing what immediately happened following the events of Wizard and Glass, which while being the middle book, actually takes place prior to the events of book 1: The Gunslinger.

Here, we see the journey the three young men took to get back to Gilead, the peril and pitfalls, and also what they came back to.

This story was worth the price of admission itself, however, you a
We get to see more of Rolands old ka-tet, it's really the story about Roland growing up that we didn't get in the books. It's exciting and I'm going to read the rest.

Another illustrated glimpse into Roland's past. However, the comic's story seems a little divergent from what was described in the novels in a way that takes away from the greater impact of Maerlyn's Fruit on Roland's quest for the Dark Tower. While the comics go into more detail about the Crimson King, the details are one-dimensional are paint a villain with a singular and somewhat cliché cause that I wouldn't expect from a Stephen King novel. Granted, King probably gave his approval for every ...more
