The Dark Tower: The Fall of Gilead

The Dark Tower: The Fall of Gilead may have been the most graphic and violent of all Stephen King's Dark Tower graphic novels I’ve read so far. The art was brilliant and bloody. The story was very fast-paced. I was reading along and suddenly the battle was over and I was at the end of the story.

The Fall of Gilead was a great continuation of the series. We are able to learn more about the wizard, Marten and how he influenced the people and helped orchestrate everything that happened. We also see that he did have human feelings, as shown by the death of Gabrielle Deschain. We get to learn more about the Pink Grapefruit, which is amazing and very weird. Mostly, there is carnage. We see what happened to most of the people in Gilead during the final battle. I felt that The Fall of Gilead could be read on its own, as the focus of the story is mainly on the battle and if you like bloody battles, this is a story for you. It is definitely part of a fantastic series. I’m excited to read the next installments, especially since the next one tells the final story of Roland’s young friends.
