Stephen King's the Stand

Just finished The Stand, published by Marvel over 31 issues and about 4 years. I've always been a fan, I think I've read the book twice (no small feat), and seen the TV movie many times.

I really enjoyed seeing many parts played out that weren't in the movie (I kept having to ask my wife if this was really in the book, since she's read it more often than me), many pieces of the characters that there was no room for in the movie. Even parts of the ending I don't remember, but I trust were in the original novel, were satisfying. Great adaptation by Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa, and stunningly realistic art by Mike Perkins.

Enjoy a few of my favorite covers from the series:
