This wasn't my favorite in the series. I appreciated and enjoyed the additional back story to the gunslinger saga, but this seemed to move rather slowly. At times the artwork was brilliant and at others I found it too dark and rather odd.

I was disappointed that the first series of Dark Tower comic books was taken directly from one of the novels, so this was a pleasant change. New stories and a fleshing out of the past is really what this series should be about.My only real complaint is that it feels like a transition between stories rather than a story in and of itself. But the art is great and the writing is pretty good too. I guess I'll just have to wait for the next set to see where this goes.

This is the third title in the comic book series adapted from Stephen King's Dark Tower fantasy series. The illustrations are, as usual, absolutely breath taking. I still find the language a little cheesy and overblown, but I enjoyed the story more this time – there were more intricacies to it, I believe, and the characterization was more fully realized, even for more minor characters. I also liked the introduction of Aileen – a much more interesting female character than Susan, in my opinion.

Treachery continues the tale of Roland and his ka-tet as Roland is in the thrall of Maerlyn's Grapefruit and his friends worry about what to do with the situation. Alain comes into the scene and makes her intentions known and Sheemie is still popping in and out, as more of a plot mover than a real character.This series is interesting and I still haven't read any of King's Dark Tower novels. As a comic series I think I'd find this a little slow and lacking in story, but since I'm reading them in the combined 5-6 comic sets it hides this somewhat. I liked the series, the artwork is incredible. This is a fairly gruesome and gritty bit of artwork so not for the squeamish.

The third installment of the Dark Tower graphic novel series is better than the second, because more things are happening and more people are involved, and because you see a little -- a very little -- of the inner workings of Gilead. Treachery is the theme of the book and it well shows the lurking forces of corruption at work in the hearts of the folk of Gilead.The artwork is once again sumptuous. One thing which frustrated me a bit about the story-telling is that the viewer is often in the wrong place. I'm thinking especially of the scene with Roland and Aileen outside the palace chatting while dastardly deeds occur within. The books have no problem with presenting multiple narrative viewpoints, but not at this crucial point. By the end of the book it is clear that one or more grievous acts of treachery have taken place, but only some of the perpetrators and victims are clear. That's how it's told but it seems at times deliberately obfuscating, with too little plot exposition.
