I don't want to be a pain in the arse here, but I get serious about great--classic--books, particularly those that you need to take down off of the shelf and read every year or two. The Stand by Stephen King is one of those. Marvel has begun a beautiful and respectful adaptation of The Stand, not breaking it up, but carefully sectioning the work into five issue arcs that, as you read them, draw you deeper and deeper into a dark world, our world, where an apocalyptic battle between the good and the very, very bad is about to take place. Marvel is not doing here what it's been doing with King's world of The Dark Tower--that is a broader, much different canvas, of which The Stand is actually a part. No; you don't fool with The Stand. If reading the adaptation of The Dark Tower is like going to hear a hot jazz combo on ten straight nights riffing differently and brilliantly on the same set, reading the Marvel adaptation of The Stand is like going to hear your favorite rock band perform on a night when they're on it in every conceivable way, playing all the songs you've come to know and love them by. They're not doing a slavish note-by-note imitation --- you could have stayed at home and listened to them on your iPod if that was what you wanted to hear --- but they're playing the songs with an energy and love that one associates with hearing them the first time through.

The collection of the first of these arcs, The Stand: Captain Trips, will send the blood rattling through your veins, as the boys in Spoon would say.

Format: Hardcover
I've read the entire series and revisited the first volume years later to see what I thought again. It's held up very well.

Any fan of Stephen King or the book should easily get engaged with this entire series. You would think that a 1000-page novel simply couldn't be condensed into this form, but it works all the way around.

The only thing I don't like is that it uses the "Complete and Uncut" version of the book, not the 1978 original edition. So there are extra scenes that I've never liked - but that's me. Fans of the longer edition are going to appreciate their inclusion.

It's worth it. If you're on the fence about checking this series out - especially if you want to re-read the original book but don't have the energy to tackle 1000 pages - this will reward the time. And, now that the entire series is finished you won't have to wait six months for each chapter like I did!

The rumor is this same creative team might tackle "Salem's Lot," which would be good news.

Its the end of the world as we know it and I - don't feel so good. Maybe it happens to be the thing with that little fiasco out in the middle of nowhere, where the people heard alarms and saw the place shut down. and maybe that would havebeen for the best - had it not been for one little mistake that killed us all. Still, were it not for the death that hovers over the land we would not see the way that people look when they start to fall off the board forever, or how it seems when the nightmares come to those that remain. Even now you can see them, the way that things are taking shape, and the way that people are trying to figure out what everything means. You also have the scraps of civilization trying tohold on, clawing and scaping and hoping to learn something from the people that are immune to what is now being called Captain Tripps.
But the Captain is bigger and badder than anything the world can throw at it.

When one talks about major undertaking, this should be listed as such. The Stand itself was a major undertaking and, honestly, it is one of the best books I have ever read. I'm not really the King type when it comes to my morning commotion, either, but the Stand is one of those things that really hits you on a human level. what would happen if the world ended and less than 1 percent of us survived? you know a lot of people would turn into monster and a lot of others would want to become their Night of the Comet dreams but, really, what would we be reduced to?

In the Stand, King answers this by focusing on two groups of people as they gather. These people are bad and good in some ways but, in some ways,, they are also neither. The people calling to them - now there is your good and your evil putting out the signal to the fallen and the still Sytanding alike.

Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: I re-read The Stand this year and heard about the comic adaptation, so of course wanted to check it out.

This is a very faithful adaptation of King's The Stand and I enjoyed it immensely. This first book covers the whole superflu leak. The government part of the story is taken care of pretty quickly, giving us enough information and background to know what happened but care has been taken to include the significant small things such as the man whose face is in the tomato soup. We meet most of our heroes in this volume and what they were doing at the time the flue, nicknamed Captain Trips, hit. We only meet one member of the dark side in this volume. We are introduced gently to the dreams of the cornfield as a couple of people have the visions and Randall Flagg is introduced here as well. We are given his background, what he knows of it, and we are in no doubt that he is the evil force.

I'm really pleased with how closely the story stayed to the book. Of course, things have been condensed. Whole situations have been summed up in a few scenes but the important plot points are there along with the small things that are important to character development. I really like how the characters have been portrayed as well. It's been a quick introduction in this volume so not all the characters have come into themselves yet, but so far I think Stu, Frannie and Randall have had the best characterization. All in all, well done. I'm really looking forward to continuing with the series but I'll take my time with it since it's only 4 volumes in so far.
