THE NIGHT HAS COME OVERVIEW: It's all been building to this, True believers: The ultimate conflict between Good and Evil. The three spies sent by the Free Zone to infiltrate Flagg's ranks have crossed over to the west, but have they underestimated the dark man's power? And the loyalty of those who follow him? Blood will be shed as the final chapter of Stephen King's masterpiece of apocalyptic horror begins!
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, will 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!"

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!"

They started with four but there will only be three.

Everything has been leading to this last stand, Good against Evil, but there is one more surprise waiting for Flagg, out in the desert, coming towards Vegas like the Wrath of God...
