The violently contagious superflu Captain Trips has now encompassed the entire country in its deadly embrace and there’s no turning back. America is rapidly becoming a country of the sick...the dead...the damned. Against that ever-darkening backdrop, Randall Flagg, the Walking Dude, the Dark Man, at long last saunters into this, the climactic chapter of the first volume of Marvel's acclaimed adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic. Abandon hope all ye who enter here... Parental Advisory…$3.99 ©2008 Stephen King. All rights reserved.

    That said, Aguirre-Sacasa deserves a lot of credit for so aptly weaving various chapters together into a cohesive narrative. The writer has covered a lot of ground in a short time, and I'm not sure there has ever been a point where the comic has come up lacking. Marvel certainly picked the right creative team for the job in this case. This adaptation holds no surprises for fans of the novel, but I just don't care. If there's a more faithful literary adaptation out there, I've never seen it. Bring on Part 2, please. Read Full Review
