Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Long Road Home Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Long Road Home, about which I write the following sentences: "'The Long Road Home' picks up where 'Gunslinger Born' left off, plot-wise, but it's a drastic improvement in almost every way. First of all, this is Robin Furth's story, with dialogue by Peter David. And although they both worked on the first adaptation, they are on their own here, taking a previously undefined moment in the life of Roland Deshain and fleshing it out into a full five issues. So, here, we don't get the jarring leaps from scene to scene. The writers don't have to cram a novel into a handful of issues. Instead, they can focus on one layered, intense, visually interesting sequence as the heroes journey back home."
