The final issue of Stephen King Dark Tower Treachery – #6 was easily the best issue of the series. Sure issue 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 all had their moments but nothing like the end of this issue.

This issue in one masterful stroke brings together the three key threads of this whole series:


Roland’s Mom

and Merlyn’s Grapefruit.

There is no crimson king and the ‘Good Man’ Farson doesn’t swoop in. But there is a finality to this issue as Roland forgets the face of his mother as he fires his gun into her chest.

All in all though..this series was enjoyable – though at $4 an issue a bit too expensive for us given the current economy…though the next episode in this saga is a one-shot issue..
