Pompous and sophomoric attempt at grandness leads to incoherence.

Treachery is the 3rd volume in the Dark Tower comic series and I'm delighted the high production quality is maintained from the standards previously set. Each panel is a wonder to experience.

Here we are introduced to a new character, Aileen Ritter, and she desires the one thing typically off-limits to women of that era—to become a gunslinger. Tradition is definitely not on her side, and don't look to Roland's friends for any easy encouragement either.

Similar to the last volume, I feel this story is light on plot, perhaps intentional, as the stage is set for the foreshadowed fall of Gilead.

This is another installment in what is a fantastic Marvel comic series. Great artwork and storytelling. The action is graphic and entertaining. I will be reading the rest of the series. The character of Roland the gunslinger is one of my favorite characters and this does a great job of telling his tale.

Secret plots swirl around the gunslingers as Roland tries to save his father and himself from the evil influence of the pink sphere. All the intrigue leading up to the Fall of Gilead, the next in the series. Shows us how his obsession with the Dark Tower began and how his mother died.
