Impressive adaptation that so far, is following King's epic narrative very closely. The art is truly impressive, and I don't think I've ever seen the "Walkin' Dude" look so fierce (very cool). It's been a fun, nostalgic ride re-entering the world of Captain Trips, visiting with Stu, and Franny, Nick and Larry (and Flagg of course) all over again. Unlike many Constant Readers, The Stand has never been one of my favourite King novels, but I do recognize it as a staggering achievement in storytelling and am certain of its lasting cultural legacy. It's been a delight to see this story re-imagined in graphic novel format. I can't wait for the Marvel team to launch The Talisman (now THAT should be something).
