The Stand: TNHC #4 (Silent white light Spoilers)

This issue contained probably the most problematic scene in the whole book, which is the hand of God showing up to kick-start the nuke, whether it’s in prose form, film or now comics, this scene still doesn’t work for me. It in no way ruins the story, but having the ending be literally a deus ex machina is annoying. But there were still some great scenes here, like Lloyd killing Glen, every time I come across that scene I’m willing Lloyd to do the right thing, but it’s to no avail. And I have to mention the Stephen King cameo, he shows up here as ‘Rich Bachman’ so it’s pretty obvious, but it was a nice touch, and since King’s has done a lot of meta stuff in his novels, it worked really well. Only 2 more issues to go, but I’m not even that sure that there’s enough story to fill 2 issues, it’s all epilogue now.

It's actually running 1 issue longer than was planned. They said it would run 30 issues back from the beginning.
