This is one of the most focused, chilling issues of The Stand yet. Much of the credit must be due to Stephen King for his original concept, but Aguirre-Sacasa and Perkins bring King's story to life wonderfully, capturing the atmosphere of the story perfectly. What's more, it's very accessible as a jumping-on point: you could give this book to someone who had never read an issue of The Stand, and they would still be able to understand and enjoy it. However, for established readers of the book, it's a high point of the story so far, and one that perfectly encapsulates the grim horror and unpleasantness that has permeated the rest of the series.
