The Stand: TNHC #6 (Russell Faraday Spoilers)

This was mostly epilogue, but it was good stuff, and it finished the story in style, with Perkins’ art looking better than ever. This has been a fantastic adaptation of one of my favourite genre novels, and it’s been great fun re-experiencing the trials and tribulations of all of the characters over the last few years again in the hands of two great creators. Aguirre-Sacasa turned King’s novel into comics pretty much perfectly, and made the wise decision to keep a lot of King’s prose in as captions, which although some could see as excessive, gave the book a different feel to almost every other comic, and Perkins, man, he drew almost every character exactly like they appeared in my head! It was uncanny, thanks for the ride guys (and Laura Martin) and let’s just hope the upcoming movie is as good to the novel as this was.
