In this final issue of the arc, Cort, the trainer of gunslingers announces that Gilead has been infiltrated. The man responsible is one of John Farson’s spies and most likely has not been working alone. And the ultimate goal of the infiltration is the theft of the immensely powerful mystical object which Roland Deschain stole and brought to Gilead—Maerlyn’s Grapefruit!

    Team is always the operative word with these books. The five names behind these Dark Tower books - Stephen King, Robin Furth, Peter David, Jae Lee, and Richard Isanove - all bring something vital to the table. The result is something truly magical; something that never fails to number among the best books of the year. As we come closer to the end game, I want to know that the Dark Tower books will continue to remain as strong as they have been so far. Read Full Review

    The issue closes with some extra material in the form of a text piece by Robin Furth that explains the significance of the riddle competition in Gilead's cultural calendar. It's one of the more interesting pieces to have been published in the series. I have to admit that, as someone who isn't particularly interested in the wider universe of the Dark Tower books, I often skim these text pieces rather than reading them closely. However, this one adds some interesting background to the issue's riddle-solving contest without feeling like and excess of detailed backstory for its own sake, and even includes a set of riddles for readers to try and solve themselves. In addition to the usual sketch material and uncolored pencils, it makes for a decent package of extras that goes some way to justifying the series' $3.99 price tag. Read Full Review
