Carnage in the desert

Roland is following the Man in Black across the deserted landscape of mid-world when he comes upon a small settlement (hardly can be called a town), and decides to rest for the night. He knows that his adversary has passed this way, although it's difficult to get any coherent information from the people of the area. Staying at the local saloon, he befriends the owner and learns about events of several days previously, when his sought-after foe has passed through.

Thus begins one of the most gruesome and sexual episodes of the Dark Tower series to date. The artistry is excellent and the story line holds the reader's interest from beginning to end. There are very strange and unusual people abounding, including the reanimated body of a dead man (brought back to life by the Dark Man). A sullen stable keeper who, apparently, molests his daughters, a piano player who was involved in the burning of Roland's one true love, and a female preacher who rails against The Interloper (Roland, of course).

We have much blood shed, depicted in quite graphic style, and the gore just seems to ooze across the pages. When it's all said and done, the whole "village" has been cleansed of its population, and Roland must go on with his search, this time across a trackless desert that appears to be related somehow to the beams supporting his world. Can't wait until the next installment

Good review. As I remember I think I still have this as a graphic novel, buried some place.
