And, not only is it faithful, but the adaptation is very good is well. Being true to the original book does not necessarily mean that the transition is smooth, followable, etc.

I was joking with my wife who has also read The Stand that this is probably one of the last books you would want to be accompanied by visual aids. As you can see by some of the photos I have included, this is definitely the case! Great art, true to story, well done adaptation - 5 stars all the way it and I am looking forward to checking out other volumes.
If interested, you should probably start with the book. But, if you are a more casual reader and not ready to commit to such a huge tome, this is a very good alternative. View all 11 comments. It has been many, many years since I read King's The Stand , so it is impossible for me to conclude how the graphic adaption compares to the original work, but everyone on the right side of the time map seem to say there is the deepest truthiness and respect towards the wordy, tile-sized masterpiece.
Captain Trips collects the first five issues in this six volume series, and it is one of the strongest starters I have come across since getting back to my comic life. There is an enormous pressure to It has been many, many years since I read King's The Stand , so it is impossible for me to conclude how the graphic adaption compares to the original work, but everyone on the right side of the time map seem to say there is the deepest truthiness and respect towards the wordy, tile-sized masterpiece.
There is an enormous pressure to adapt something this big and dear to many, and there is always a greater chance for it to blow up than become an celebrated part of a legendary story that would hold the dust of time, respectfully.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa delivers. It requires a lot of talent to represent multiple key characters within a shortish period of time, but here it is done nearing perfection. The timeline for each character and scene is timed almost flawlessly, there is nothing futile in the way Aguirre-Sacasa moves the story along, and there is quite a lot of depth even in individuals that aren't getting the panel time as much as it would usually require for a reader to get a grip of what someone is.
But the beauty really comes of the way Aguirre-Sacasa is able to capture the essence of how something contagious and deadly becomes an outbreak by transmission.
So much accuracy, so much excitement, so much good kind of thrills and emotions. Mike Perkins' illustrations I do not really have words because they are so outstandingly beautiful and full of many awesome details you want to get yourself hooked on. We are still at the early stage of something sinister, and I am super excited to continue to the next volume, and more so because thanks to Marvel's recent supersale weekend, I only paid two dollars of each volume, and that is like a mosquito's piss in an ocean, die worthy cheap.

Captain Trips is the first edition and collects the first 5 comics of the series. Nick takes his beating, Lloyd does his killing and Stu is locked up as the muppets in hazmat suits inject him with the virus. If you want to see the pictures http: View all 8 comments. Apr 03, Marc-Antoine rated it it was amazing. The Stand was my first Stephen King novel and reading the graphic novel sure brings me back. I hope I don't get the sniffles again this time around!
Well done. I know this is only the graphic novel and I like graphic novels. Still, this has the power of the full novel and I got so engrossed. I want to read them all. They did an amazing job with one of the greatest stories of the 20th century. The art is amazing. It can also be disturbingly gross, which fits the story. The characters are there and the story shines off the page. I am needing to finish this whole thing.
Whoever decided this would work in graphic novel format was a genius and thank you tha I know this is only the graphic novel and I like graphic novels. Whoever decided this would work in graphic novel format was a genius and thank you that we can read this story in a quick way and still get the story.
I'm in. Does this replace the novel? This is a great add on to the novel when you don't have 50 hours to read it. Does anyone know if there is a graphic novel for IT? That would be nice too. View 2 comments. Stephen King's stuff in graphic novel form is just a wicked good combination. Love, love, love the artwork in this, and I can't wait to read the rest in the series. The visuals are fantastic and the pace moves a lot quicker than the novel for obvious reasons. Randall Flagg is such a creepy character, a villain who one day walks out of the night and into everyone's nightmares.
I loved seeing him drawn in comic book form. The Stand has always been one of my all time favorite books, and this adaptation was fantastic. I was quite impressed.

I knew that there would be a lot left out, and I had prepared myself to be disappointed in the way it was done, but obviously, I was far from disappointed, and actually loved it.
The only thing that I felt was missing was Harold Lauder, but I am quite sure that he will be introduced in the next installment. The artwork was amazing. I loved the representation of the characters, and this was another area where I'd been nervous - I've known these characters for half of my life!
If they are depicted in a way that doesn't mesh with the characters I know, it could be very bad. But, while they did look different than they do in my head and in the mini-series adaptation , they represented their characters well. In a couple of frames, Larry Underwood even looked a little like Hugh Laurie, that sexy beast.
It's quite graphic, and doesn't sugar-coat or gloss over the illness caused by the superflu. It was awesome. D I loved this, and am headed to read the second installment right now. The 3rd is on my Christmas wishlist! This review centers on the hardcover collection of the series which include sketchbook material, creator comments and sample scripts.
The st The Stand: It is an excellent starting point as Aguirre-Sacasa fleshes out the background of the characters who are soon to have major roles as this adaptation progresses from this initial miniseries.
The art is a revelation. He usually has a secondary role in Captain America by Ed Brubaker where he supports main artist Steve Epting with inks and the occasional pencils in maintaining consistent visuals with their similar styles. Perkins provides art with an emphasis that is almost photorealistic and the figures move with a grace that is not static or posed that often plagues realistic art.
His depictions of the phlegm bloated corpses of the plague victims are both vividly gruesome and fascinating because of the detail.
Reading it gives you a feeling of the malevolence that emanates from the character and gives a chill to your bones. This is shaping out to be an excellent adaptation of a Stephen King book and an excellent starter to one of his more acclaimed novels.
I have no problem of downloading the succeeding chapters, if they do somehow end up in the bargain bookstore where I got his copy.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa does a fine job adapting the source material. The story moves along well considering the length of book.
It's been two years since I originally read it but I'm not really getting the feeling a whole lot is being left out. The characters match up pretty well with how I envisioned them, which is always a nice touch when moving from a novel to a more visual medium. I'm eagerly anticipating the arrival of Trashcan Man the most so hopefully I can get my hands on Volume 2 a lot sooner than I hope. View all 3 comments. Mar 28, Kandice rated it really liked it.
I can't believe how quickly images can get across a story that takes hundreds of pages in words.
Much like the mini-series, I have problems with the way some of the characters are drawn, but find others perfection. Frannie, Larry, Nick. Not so great: The Walkin' Dude his pants are sup I can't believe how quickly images can get across a story that takes hundreds of pages in words. Even with those small complaints I can't wait to continue. Mar 27, Trudi rated it liked it Shelves: Impressive adaptation that so far, is following King's epic narrative very closely.
The art is truly impressive, and I don't think I've ever seen the "Walkin' Dude" look so fierce very cool. It's been a fun, nostalgic ride re-entering the world of Captain Trips, visiting with Stu, and Franny, Nick and Larry and Flagg of course all over again.

Unlike many Constant Readers, The Stand has never been one of my favourite King novels, but I do recognize it as a staggering achievement in storytelling and am certain of its lasting cultural legacy. It's been a delight to see this story re-imagined in graphic novel format. This is Vol. It seems to be covering the main chapters quite well. That being said, I think this format is an excellent visual supplement for someone who has read the novel. Anyone reading The Stand this way will miss so much of what makes this such a Stephen King classic.
Was the illustrator trying to draw Stephen King into some of the scenes? Some of the random people in the crowds look an awful lot like SK. Rating this 4 stars for how well the introduction was pulled off in this format and how fun it was to read this way. Jun 20, Alistair M rated it it was amazing Shelves: The artwork in this is equal parts stunning and where appropriate absolutely gruesome. I actually cringed a couple of times. This being my favourite Stephen King book, I was pretty excited to see it had been turned into a series of graphic novels.

The most surreal bit was how closely the characters resembled my imagined versions of them, especially considering King doesn't go into a lot of detail about physical characteristics so much as the 'feel' of a character.
Nick Andros is a character that's stuck with me years since reading The Stand.
