The Stand Returns With American Nightmares

2nd arc in King comic series

This year, Marvel Comics held to its promise and delivered one hell of an adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand.” Or, at least the beginning of one. Arc number one – “Captain Tripps” – is coming to an end and a second one is about to begin. Marvel has revealed the cover art for “American Nightmares,” the five-part sophomore arc in “The Stand” series.

The deadly super flu Captain Trips has devastated the country and now the few survivors must pick up the pieces and go on. Larry Underwood seeks escape from New York City. Lloyd contemplates an extremely unsavory dinner option in jail, and Stu Redman makes a desperate bid for freedom from his interrogators. Most ominous of all, the strange being called Randall Flagg continues his dread journey across the devastated landscape of America. You must not miss it!

The series is adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
