About the Author

Stephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes The Institute, Elevation, The Outsider, Sleeping Beauties (cowritten with his son Owen King) and the Bill Hodges trilogy, End of Watch, Finders Keepers, and Mr. Mercedes (an Edgar Award winner for Best Novel and an AT&T Audience Network original television series). His novel 11/22/63 was named a top ten book of 2011 by The New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. His epic works The Dark Tower and It are the basis for major motion pictures, with It now the highest grossing horror film of all time. He is the recipient of the 2018 PEN America Literary Service Award, the 2014 National Medal of Arts, and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

Peter David is a prolific writer whose career, and continued popularity, spans more than twenty-five years. He has worked in every conceivable media—television, film, books (fiction, nonfiction, and audio), short stories, and comic books—and acquired followings in all of them.

Robin Furth is perhaps the only person around who knows more about the Dark Tower mythos than Stephen King himself, and is the author of The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance.

Jae Lee is an Eisner Award winning comic book artist known for his interior illustration and cover work for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, and Dynamite Entertainment.

Richard Isanove is one of the comic book industry’s premier color artists, skillfully transforming traditional black-and-white illustrations into richly rendered final compositions on such acclaimed series as Wolverine: Origin and Neil Gaiman’s 1602.

The Battle of Jericho Hill (Dark Tower Graphic Novel Series #5) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 16 reviews.

The Battle of Jericho Hill, finally. Referenced in Stephen King's Dark Tower books, this is where Roland fought against John Farson alongside his friends, but ends up walking away alone, to spend his life pursuing Marten Broadcloak and the Dark Tower. I have been waiting to reach this point in the story for a long time. Perhaps the anticipation was better than actually getting there. It's not a bad graphic novel, it is just nothing special. We know what is going to happen, how it must end, and there is nothing very exciting to keep us interested in getting there.On a side note, I am a bit disappointed that everyone involved has decided to continue producing these comics, basically The Further Adventures of Roland. The five volumes of the Dark Tower so far fill in some of Roland's history that is only talked about but never detailed in King's books. My fear is that anything going forward will be extraneous to the larger Dark Tower story, which is pretty much perfect as it stands now. Time will tell.

The Battle of Jericho Hill completes the tale of Roland and his ka-tet as Roland is leading the free people against the Good Man Farson. Once again Farson has placed a man into the ranks of his enemies as a trusted friend and adviser. This leads to a devastating betrayal. For those hoping over the last 4 Graphic Novels for SOME kind of getting even or comeuppance for the side of good you will be sorely disappointed. This is like the end of Star Wars:Revenge of the Sith. If we're lucky the next one might more closely resemble 'A New Hope'.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.

This is the fifth and final book in the first "chapter" of prequels to Stephen King's Dark Tower series. For some reason, this book was the only one that didn't compel me to read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Thankfully, illustrator Jae Lee was back for this edition so the artwork is amazing (even if brutal), but there's just not much of a plot to this one. It probably could have been shorter and fared well for that, as the final chapter/issue was really the core here. When Aileen was introduced in Treachery, I thought she was a fabulous character so I'm disappointed they didn't do more with her in this book. Overall, after anticipating reading this book for several months, I just felt "meh" about it.

This has been quite the series. The art style is still weird but pretty good as ever. Good volume.

The story in this book went to quick. I had to read it several times for it to sink in. At the end, I was like, "wait, what?, wait, did they just...." I've read King's series and was excited when the graphic novels were going to come out. But seriously... Sad though...
