The dead are still dead and the living are still finding their way through this horribly altered landscape of America. Thus, it’s a perfect time to—bring on the bad guys! Randall Flagg performs his first act of magic and begins his cross country journey in a souped-up Buick. And then, there’s the strangest addition to the cast yet...Donald Merwin Elbert, the Trashcan Man, a pyromaniac who suddenly has no one to curb his unhealthy obsession with blowing things up. All this plus Rita suggests to Larry Underwood that they should start making their way out of New York, perhaps via...the Lincoln Tunnel! And you know what that means. Cardstoc more

    I get the feeling that those readers who follow this story from beginning to end will be treated to an enjoyable story with three-dimensional characters, a compelling core plot, and a high standard of artwork. The only question is whether The Stand can provide enough enjoyment on an issue-to-issue basis to encourage readers to stick with it until its climax. This is a story that feels like it will stand as more than the sum of its parts once complete. With that in mind, it's perhaps a comic that will read better in a collected edition than in monthly instalments. Read Full Review
