    The Circle Opens.. As I'm curently reading the Complete 1440 pages of The Stand, Half way through I find out I don't want it to ends...well, this comics is a great way to fast-re-living the experience. The Beginning In this comic you see the beginning of 3 of my very interesting characters; Captain Trips How this strange killing flu starting...how it start to be catching.. with patient Zero, the first people he encounter...the people at the Gas station... There's Stu..but more on that later, back whe The Circle Opens.. As I'm curently reading the Complete 1440 pages of The Stand, Half way through I find out I don't want it to ends...well, this comics is a great way to fast-re-living the experience. The Beginning In this comic you see the beginning of 3 of my very interesting characters; Captain Trips How this strange killing flu starting...how it start to be catching.. with patient Zero, the first people he encounter...the people at the Gas station... There's Stu..but more on that later, back when I was reading this chapter I didn't thought any of them will make it. Frannie She's one of my favourite characters, may be it didn't struck me at this beginning but in later chapter you'll love her. Here, she's pregnant and confronting her friend.she's lost with decision.. And then there's Larry Underwood The comics catches him, and the mother figure, Alice Underwood, perfectly.. BUT, reading the Unabridged novel, I'd understand Larry deeper than the comic, why he left California was prolonged but better in the novel.. I pictured him as Leo DiCaprio, his mother as Meryl Streep. Anyway that's so far the only scene that I prefer that anyone read the comic try to find it in the novel... amazing, prolonged but so deep. -Glad that they add the rat that eats the belly of the dead cat here.- The comics is good, haunting... yet still it's perfect if you preceded it with the Novel itself.

    I have heard a number of things about Stephen King's novel called, "The Stand." I see there will be a new television mini-series about it soon in 2021. I'm aware of at least one other television series about it. I haven't read any Stephen King books before, but when I saw I could read a graphic novel about "The Stand" I decided I would take a look at it. The first graphic novel by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa covers five chapters of the book and it is called, Captain Trips which is the name of the dis I have heard a number of things about Stephen King's novel called, "The Stand."

I haven't read any Stephen King books before, but when I saw I could read a graphic novel about "The Stand" I decided I would take a look at it. The first graphic novel by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa covers five chapters of the book and it is called, Captain Trips which is the name of the disease that is killing people around the United States and the world. The disease got out of a secret military base in the United States and spread rapidly across the country. We are introduced to a number of characters who will be featured in the next installment of "The Stand." For me, this was an easy way to read and understand this novel. I probably would never read the novel on its own. It makes me curious about the new television mini-series and I have learned enough about it that I have ordered the second installment of the book to read soon. If you enjoy graphic novels, I think you would enjoy reading this version of "The Stand" and appreciate the artwork and writing in it.

    I loved this adaptation. I think they did a fantastic job of bringing the story to life and adding an extra element to it. Still as creepy as the book and the movie, the art brings this compelling story to an even darker place. We watch as the world goes to hell when a super virus is accidentally leaked from a government facility. From city to city we watch the break down from all angles.

    This is a fantastic graphic novel adaptation of the book. If you like the book, do try this as well. If you like comics/graphic novels, this one is a must. The various storylines which fuse together, the exquisite detail in the pieces of art, (spoiler) for instance, I was blown away by the woman and child in the car who had been dead for some time.

    Primer volumen en formato de cómic de la novela "The Stand" (título traducido al principio como "La danza de la muerte" y después como "Apocalipsis") de Stephen King. Desde mi punto de vista, no supieron adaptar muy bien la novela al lenuaje de secuencias gráficas.

    This book will stay with me forever. I read the unedited version and I'm certain there is nothing like it nor will there ever be. My favorite King book. The King of King.

    Ich hab grad keine Lust jede einzelne Ausgabe der Reihe hinzuzufügen, aber ich fand alle toll! Eine eindrucksvolle Umsetzung des Romans, den ich jetzt wohl schon in jeder Form - Buch, Film, Hörbuch und eben Graphic Novel - kenne! Generell ein Meisterwerk, das es auf Grund seiner Einsicht in die Entstehung und Entwicklung verschiedener Gesellschaftsstruckturen verdient hätte, einen Platz in der Weltliteratur zu erhalten.
