I still don't know how I feel about this story, which is fine, I suppose.

I'll read a bit more to see if I'll get attached to the characters but so far the only one I care about is Sheemie and I might be reading this story wrong haha.

Art work is impressive and that's mostly why I'm still here.

Well done with the second volume! Lots of new stuff and hints of the future and I really, really enjoyed it! I especially am enjoying the time we get to spent with Alain and Cuthbert. Yeah they're really just trying to muddle through until Roland gets his act together but I like it. Can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

The Long Road Home treats us to more original material as compared to its predecessor, The Gunslinger Born. In the Dark Tower book series (from which this comic book series is based on), Roland, Cuthbert and Alain's journey from Mejis is mentioned only in passing, as are the major plot hooks (Sheemie's powers, Roland succumbing to the glam of Maerlyn's Grapefruit), but here the individual moments are fleshed out in better detail with some new revelations.

We know so little about Roland's tet-mates (his friends, say thankya) that having much of the story told from Alain and Cuthbert's perspective is a welcomed addition. The narrative is a little thin, but that's okay because it's sandwiched between two larger tales. And the professional panel artwork is breathtaking, as I come to expect.

This was not as good as the first book in this series, but it was still an exceptional comic. I will be reading the rest of the series, regardless. The artwork in this series is amazing. Some of the best I've ever seen. I wasn't was impressed by the storyline or the dialogue in this book, but I am still hooked.
