This final volume, as excellent as all others in the series, hints at a possible future graphic novel adaptation of 'Salem's Lot.

M-O-O-N.... That spells good times.

It seems like cheating to say that I read six books here. In reality you have one single story, illustrated over six volumes. Each volume consists of approximately 120 pages of comic book form story telling. Each volume would take me approximately two hours to read and fully appreciate. In terms of actual writing content, if you read a traditional 300 page novel, I would say you probably read an equal amount of text to these six volumes.

But that isn't the reason why most readers picked up this
The adaptation takes an interesting turn on the final battle of good and evil. There is a literal interpretation of good and evil and Perkins relies on classical red devil with horns vs. white and pure. The hand of god that King writes which I believe is intended to be abstract and subtle is made blatant with religious connotation.

A fitting end to a great story. Several characters come to a full circle and so does Randal Flagg. For him, it ends exactly where it started for him and he knows how i

I have read the book and read the unedited version of the book, but I didn't look closely at this when I took it out of the library. There was nothing on the cover to indicate that this was one in a series. I should have known though because the original was so long. I just thought that the publisher was trying to keep it short for comics. That said this was the final in a six graphic novel series.

It didn't ruin it for me because I already knew what was going to happen. It was interesting to se

Una excelente adaptación de una de las mas ambiciosas novelas de Stephen King (The Stand). Leí The Stand hace décadas, antes que hubiera ningún lugar como este para reseñarla y guardarla en la memoria. Igual mi recuerdo era que me había encantado. Así que cuando exploraba Issuee (un verdadero tesoro para BDs/Comics) y me topé con esta adaptación gráfica, era inevitable probarla. Y el resultado es excelente. El ambiente, la historia, los personajes, reflejan espectacularmente la novela original. ...more

This final volume reaches its climax, with surprises and betrayals and turnabouts all on display. The Vegas contingent is more central here, as Flagg's people start to falter. The book does a good job with the major showdown, which still doesn't quite work in my mind, but plays out better here than in any other medium. The sacrifices and impact play out well, and the final journey and denoument are given more impact than I remember from the novel, focusing on how this doesn't really end the stor ...more

The last epic volume is now finished! It ended as well as it started. I guess the magic in the novel is the spread of Captain Trips immediately hooks and addicts you to the book, but then other problems come into play. This volume sure had a ton happening in it. I'm not sure why certain characters at the end didn't get the idea to find a snow plow to try to make it home faster. The panel that really got to me, made me tear up a little bit, was remembering all the people that had that been lost i ...more

Reprints The Stand: The Night Has Come #1-6 (October 2011-March 2012). The final battle has arrived. The forces of good and the forces of evil have gathered and now Glen Bateman, Stu Redman, Larry Underwood, and Ralph Brentner have been sent West to Las Vegas to meet Randall Flagg. Their battle will challenge the world and when they take a stand, not all of them will return.

Adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, The Stand 6: The Night Has Come follows The Stand 5: No Man’s Land and is the final volu

Although the majority of Marvel's adaptation of THE STAND is very fine indeed, it sputters out just a smidge in this final installment. Where Aguirre-Sacasa's slowly-unfolding scripts for the previous volumes employed subtlety in their storytelling, this one is a little heavy-handed in its rush to denouement. Even Mike Perkins' art seems less quietly evocative and more workmanlike in this episode, but still reliably enjoyable.

The climactic "Hand of God" sequence is presented far too literally fo

The End. I always feel a bit of an emotional tug when I finish this story, and I'm glad to say that the graphic novel version is astounding! Six volumes, all full of the best moments from the book (and I loved the Stephen King "cameo" in this last volume as Rich Bachman.) So glad I had the opportunity to read these! Long live Nick!

that was such a good ending. i knew it already from the book but this really made it come alive. Flagg still creeps me out for the most part but thats a good thing when it comes to bad guys and pure-fuck-off-evil. i love the dog Kojak and enjoy when the story line is told from his perspective. So glad i bought this series!

Loved the graphic novel format of this favorite. It really did justice to the book and that seemed almost an impossible feat. This truly deserved a five-star rating, but because it's an adaptation of the original, I gave it a four. I definitely recommend this to any fan of Stephen King's book.

The artwork is awesome. You have to hand it to the creators for being able to pare this famously huge book into a story that can still captivate and entertain readers, even those who have not read King's novel.

Stephen King when he was good and didn't write a lot of fluff. This is a good adaption of his book, although it feels a little rushed at times. Perhaps that's because I read the book many times when I was younger and I'm still familiar with the plot. The artwork is pretty decent and I'd like to see some other adaptions of King's work into graphic novels. There was one of the Talisman but it seems to have been shelved indefinitely. The Long Walk would be a great but shorter graphic novel. 'It' wo ...more

Stephen King is a magician with words and ideas. I think to read the novel in graphic novel format was indeed a good idea because I could never have stretched my imagination to the extent that the illustrators did.

My review for this is the same as the others.

I loved how all the characters were drawn according to how King described them in The Stand. For the most part, the miniseries had been a hit and miss when it came to picking the right actor/actress to play the character. I did not like Larry Underwood in the miniseries, but I loved, loved, loved him in the novel and the graphic novels. It was extremely sad to have his life end that way. That's the only downside of this volume... him dying. My poor L

Let me be completely honest. As a writer (King not me), I'm really not that big of a fan of Stephen King novels. I'm just not that big a fan of his prose... although I admit, that the guy does have some great ideas.
However, this story makes for a great graphic novel adaptation. I remember seeing the TV mini-series of this and thinking it was pretty good (I usually DO like Stephen King story movies) and would also make a good GN.

The best comic book adaption of Stephen King books. 31 issues is an enough to make justice to this epic and big novel. All the great things are here, sure you can hope for more a deepness to characters, but then book is always there to go back. Mike Perkins art is just right for this (his Captain America work gave me great hope for this project). I'm also very happy that they didn't skip the 'after Vegas' story, which was best part of the book for me, and upcoming (if it's coming) movies are sur ...more

Like the novel, this series closes not with a bang, but with a whimper. It was never more than an adequate adaptation, and this volume carries on that tradition, but it also has to contend with the terrible ending of the source material. No matter how big a lampshade you hand on it, deus ex machina is still deus ex machinca. Further, the denouement is just as drawn out here as in the novel (some 200 pages as I recall), with the story going on 2 issues (out of 6) after the climax. Neither of thes ...more

The Night Has Come felt a bit tedious despite being the final volume to conclude the adaptation.

Still not sure how I felt about this last volume. I definitely read it faster than any of the previous ones, definitely felt my self more eager to find out what happens next. But a lot of what happened felt... I don't know. Kind of anti-climactic. Kind of confusing. I was left actually wishing I had been able to get through the book because everything seemed to make more sense and have more impact in that medium. It was just too thick to make it through...

A pretty good interpretation of Stephen King's "The Stand" in graphic novel form... I enjoyed the moniseries/movie, but as much as that differed from the book, so too does this differ from the movie and book both. I'm really enjoying going through the series (it is contained in several different volumes) and seeing what the artists have done with the characters. How they see them, in thier mind's eye. What part of the book they found more important to showcase vs the miniseries/movie... it's goo ...more
