    Mike Perkins' art continues to hold up well, despite not having much of a break between "Soul Survivors" and "Hardcases". The cast of this story continues to grow by the month, yet Perkins never seems to struggle with lending each character a unique visual appearance. Laura Martin's colors are easily the star of the show this time. From the haunting glow of the Gary blaze to the climactic trek through the desert, Martin's colors remain lush and varied. The only significant difference in this series when it comes to the art is that Tomm Coker has replaced Lee Bermejo as regular cover artist. If that's the most significant change readers will face in these last three mini-series, it should be safe to assume The Stand will be able to finish as strongly as it started. Read Full Review
