The Dark Tower: Treachery #1 (of 5)
Overview

A festival in Gilead is going to be held to celebrate the three young gunslingers. Steven Deschain, lord of Gilead, congratulates the new gunslingers. Cuthbert and Alain were celebrating their new position as gunslingers when they were stoned by some jealous "wanna bes."

Alain and Cuthbert go to tell Roland of the jealousy they are dealing with and find him not answering his door. Through the keyhole they discover Roland is still obsessed with the pink grapefruit. They didn't know where Roland had gone in the grapefruit but they knew it was trouble.

Roland of course was welcomed by the Crimson King. And, the Crimson King orders Roland to bow or die. The Crimson King jumps down on Roland.

Roland screams back into his own world, secures the grapefruit and decides to keep it from his father, to protect his father from it.

Steven Deschain, Cuthbert's father and Alain's father and several other gunslingers ride out on a mission to stop John Farson.

Farson's men are tired of the blood and murdering. During the conversation they are killed by the gunslingers. One calls out, "Mercy." The gunslinger offers their life for information on Farson. The wounded man explodes a grenade. There is an explosion.

Gunslinger Litany

I do not aim with my hand;

He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.

I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my hand;

He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.

I shoot with my mind.

I do not kill with my gun;

He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.

I kill with my heart.
