If you haven't yet read the Dark Tower series (or finished the series) and plan to, don't read this book! The writers and artists have crammed an impressive number of spoilers into this brief volume, and have also bulldozed levels of nuance which make the Dark Tower series such a good read.

Some elements of the artwork are inspired and atmospheric, which I appreciate, but the artists still work for Marvel, so the male characters look like they're on steroids and have had chin implants and the one female character who's supposed to be attractive looks like a Barbie doll who's been posterized. And you can forget about character development in such a short book.

Oh well.
