Book Description

18 Jan 2012 Stand (Marvel) (Book 2)
Someone at Project Blue was keeping a secret. A secret they thought they could contain. They thought wrong. Now, with 99 percent of the country's population dead or dying, the viral strain developed at project Blue--dubbed 'Captain Trips'--has brought about the end of the world. For the survivors--including Nick Andros, Larry Underwood, Frannie Goldsmith and Stu Redman--this ending is a nightmare that's just begun. And for Randall Flagg, this is an American Nightmare come true, as his macabre vision of the future continues to unfold. Based on the popular

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Artwork 19 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
I first started this series back when only a few volumes were out and decided to stop and wait until it had been completed. So here I am back with Vol. 2. This volume jumps around the country showing us who the survivors (major players) are, where they are, their current circumstances and how they get on their journey heading towards where they are being pulled. Randall appears more frequently this volume and the characters experience the bad dreams from him, this time there is only one dream of the old woman and corn field and that is by Nick. Main storylines are Nick still coping with being Sheriff and his last prisoner in the jail. He finally leaves and begins his journey after getting directions from his dream of the cornfield. Larry Underwood meets Rita they travel off together and the famous scene in the tunnel occurs. Frannie meets Harold and their whole set-up story takes place as they decide to head out on the road together at which point they meet up with Stu. Stu starts starts off at the CDC and the plot covers his break-out and journey till he meets up with Fran and Harold. Randall Flagg saves Lloyd from prison and recruits his first henchman. Oh we also meet Trashcan Man in this volume. Everybody is portrayed faithfully to the novel and I feel like I know everybody already. I'm enjoying seeing the story played out in this format. The only thing I don't like is the portrayal of Harold; he's not how I imagine him at all. First he looks like Hank from "King of the Hill" which totally kills the creeps that character gives me in the book. Otherwise I love everybody. The art in this novel is absolutely gorgeous! Not that there are any pretty scenes but just outstanding art and I'm really looking forward to the next volume as things start to get darker and Tom Cullen should be introduced, I think, with Vol. 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Pictorial Companion to Stephen King's Novel (*spoilers included*) 9 May 2012
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The second installment of The Stand, American Nightmares, continues Marvel's amazing first series, Captain Trips, in a planned full-scale graphic novel adaptation of Stephen King's masterpiece. The artists have done a phenomenal job illustrating King's well-known characters, remaining faithful to the source material and paying close attention to detail. The most horrific sights from King's book are depicted in raw, disturbing scenes of the gory, plague-ridden streets of various cities, as well as the violent mayhem that ensues from society's breakdown. From rats gnawing on decaying corpses to a looter hung from a streetlight, hands cut off and eyes eaten by birds, Marvel pulls no punches when it comes to the violent nature of The Stand. This series chronicles the final collapse of civilization, and serves to get the main characters moving away from their grief and loss and toward each other, introducing more characters along the way. Fran and Harold in Maine, and Larry and Rita in New York, leave home behind in an attempt to find other survivors. Nick leaves Arkansas after escaping an attack from Ray Booth, and Stu escapes the disease center in Vermont where he's nearly killed. Stu eventually meets Glen Bateman and his dog Kojak as he travels through New Hampshire. Lloyd escapes prison, but only after giving his soul to Randall Flagg, who arrives to offer him salvation. The Trashcan Man is introduced, blowing up an oil refinery in Indiana before heading west. Chapter Three is the highlight of this series, showing Larry's terrifying walk through the Lincoln Tunnel. The artists do an excellent job showing Larry's paranoid thoughts as he imagines all of the horrors that could be creeping up on him in the darkness. Unfortunately for Larry, his traveling companion Rita overdoses on pills shortly after the tunnel, and Larry awakes one morning to find her dead in the tent they had slept in. As the characters begin to have nightmares about Flagg and dreams about Mother Abigail, they make gradual progress west. Near the end, Stu and Glen meet up with Fran and Harold, and they all decide to travel together despite Harold's reluctance, setting up the key personal conflicts to come in the next series. Marvel's adaptation of The Stand is incredible, and I can't imagine them being able to do a better job of bringing Stephen King's book to life. Each installment is a must-have for any dedicated fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent graphic representation of the novel 12 Mar 2014
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In 1978, Stephen King published his post-apocalyptic novel, The Stand. It was a fantastic novel, so dark and so fascinating, and it got an immediate following. In 2008, Marvel Comics began publishing their graphic novel version of the book, which appeared in six series of five comic books each.

This graphic novel contains story arc #2 – the deadly plague, Captain Trips, has devastated the country, and left a group of shell-shocked survivors wondering what future there is for them, if any. But, there is one man who has definite plans for the future, Randall Flagg, and he is going to bring those plans to fruition!

This is an excellent graphic representation of the novel. The artwork was excellent, much better than a lot of comic books. And, the story moved along quite well. I think that this book captured very well the feeling of the original novel. So, if you enjoyed reading The Stand, then you will enjoy this graphic novel (and the others in the collection!). And if you want to use these graphic novels to give you a condensed and easy-to-read version of the novel, you can do that too!
