I just cannot get enough of Roland, Mid-World, or the Gunslingers. The Marvel series of comics/graphic novels really does a great job of fleshing out Gilead and Roland's life as a teenager, while still keeping King's tone of the books. Highly recommended for all Dark Tower fans.

For those who already know the story of Roland Deschain's ascent to gunslingerhood and the tragedy of his love for Susan Delgado, the main story arc will bring no surprises.

However, there are also some very intriguing additions to the story, especially in the appearances of both The Good Man (John Farson) and the Crimson King.
