Stephen King Dark Tower Treachery #5 Kiss the Devil February 6, 2009

Finally this drawn out series is drawing to a close at a good pace.

Last issue Roland finally gave up the grapefruit and we learned that his mom was still a beatch.

Now we see his mom’s treachery almost reach its climax…

Why Cort didn’t stop the dude from messing with his riddles – i dunno

But what thing for sure in this issue is that Roland now is finally shaping up to be the character we all know and love from the Dark Tower books.

Roland gives up the grapefruit and gives it to his father. It is totally ridiculous how long Peter David has strung this story line out…and it’s a damn shame too.

This serious is a good one but stretching out plot elements needlessly is just shameful.

That said – now we’ve got some forward motion here again and Treachery is all around.

Roland’s mom and Farson are all converging toward the climax of this series which should be a real winner.

Again very little of Roland in this book — but we know he’ll drop out of his funk soon enough.

Why Steven Deschain left his wife alive after finding out about her evil is beyond me – but now with her going back to his enemy…well we know where this will end up.

As always a riveting issue from an imagery point of view – but again one that is a bit too plodding for me with little action – and mostly plot development –

Well except for Aileen who met in the last issue – i don’t think she ends up with Roland thought that’s clearly Cort’s plan.

Stephen King Dark Tower Treachery #2 Here come the Jillies! October 14, 2008

Another female character! but this time it’s not a regular jilly – this time it’s a gunslinger. Aileen neice of Cort is a piece of work ain’t she?

Beyond that new character – we don’t have a whole lot going on here do we? No Roland (though his ka-tet is here) and Roland’s Father (whose face he still remembers) dispatches a few of Farson’s men (hooray!).

With this being a six issue series – i suspect that Marvel will stretch this out a bit – but I sure do hope we see a little more action next issue (and more of Aileen too).
