Lauded for their collaboration on the acclaimed series THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS, this fan-favorite team returns with the second chapter to their adaptation of Stephen King's seminal novel "The Stand"! Randall Flagg continues his journey amidst the ruins and destruction that surrounds him. He travels through the devastated landscape of America while the few survivors of the deadly super flu, Captain Trips, fight for their survival. Featuring variant covers from superstars Lee Bermejo (THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS) and David Finch (ULTIMATUM), this is the issue you can't miss! Critics are raving about the creative team behind THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS: "Aguirre-Sacasa deserves a lot of credit for so aptly weaving various chapters together into a cohesive narrative. The writer has covered a lot of ground in a short time, and I'm not sure there has ever been a point where the comic has come up lacking." Jesse Schedeen, IGN.Com "Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa does such a phenomenal job capturing the tone and the spirit of the book it's hard to believe King isn't whispering in his ear as he writes the scripts. The art by Mike Perkins and the coloring by Laura Martin could not fit the story better if they tried." Jeff Dixon, iFanboy.com Pick up The THE STAND: AMERICAN NIGHTMARES #1 – in stores this week!
