NO MANS LAND OVERVIEW: As Flagg's influence continues to draw Nadine and Harold further towards madness and destruction, the Free Zone Committee makes their first play against the Kingdom of Evil: They will send three spies to Vegas--provided, of course, that their "volunteers" agree to what could very well be a suicide-mission. It's bitter goodbyes in this heart-wrenching chapter of Stephen King's apocalyptic epic. Also: What's the trouble with young Leo Rockway?
As fans of the insta-classic know, "The Stand" has gone through a few incarnations in the years since King first released it in 1978. While the story remained the same—two groups of survivors face off against one another in a mythical battle of good versus evil following a devastating pandemic—the 1990 "Complete and Uncut Edition" fleshed out the action significantly.
This version, according to THE STAND editor Bill Rosemann, has come to life in the Marvel Comics adaptation. From the very first cough to the sinister showdown with the Walkin Dude himself, this is the official and authentic translation of Stephen Kings sprawling saga—taken from the Complete & Uncut Edition—only as Mighty Marvel can!
Written by ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA Art & Cover by MIKE PERKINS. Of course, as with the Gunslingers series, the project would not be complete with out a stamp of approval from the author himself. Rosemann reassures fans, each and every issue of THE STAND will be scrutinized, digested and blessed by the incredibly helpful and wise King Krew…and by King himself!
ISSUE 1: While Frannie and Stu struggle to find a balance between their personal lives and their public personas, an unholy, unspeakable alliance is born between Harold Lauder and Nadine Cross. It's a date with destiny, orchestrated by the Dark Man, and it could very well mean doom for the Boulder Free Zone. It's time to commune with the spirits of the dead, True Believers, and their message is clear: 'You cannot miss what's coming next!

It's bitter goodbyes in this heart-wrenching chapter of Stephen King's?apocalyptic epic. Also: What's the trouble with young Leo Rockway?

The clock is ticking for the forces of good, True Believers, and we've hit the point of no return... Don't dare miss it!
ISSUE 4: There is a traitor living among the faithful of Boulder. Harold Lauder, his true nature discovered by the people he once called friends: Stu Redman, Larry Underwood, and, of course, Frannie Goldsmith.

With the pair in deep hiding, danger could be lurking in every corner, but the Free Zone Committee has no choice but to carry on business-as-usual.
