Reviewer Rating:


Since I've not read many graphic novels, I decided to read one based on a book I have already read. I like The Stand's story, so I could concentrate on the artwork and how it presents the story. This is actually part 1 of 6 books in the graphic-novel series--the original The Stand is more than 1,000 pages.

The Stand 1: Captain Trips introduces the main characters and the apocalypse that befalls the world: a superflu engineered by the American government that accidentally escapes into the human population. It's a scary book, and the graphic novel's drawings do it justice: lots of infection, gross bodily fluids, and violent mayhem.

I'm looking forward the other books in the series, but I'm going to take it slow; this is definitely not before-bed reading.
