The Stand.



After a strong showing with The Dark Tower I series, and a not quite as strong but still pretty good showing with DT 2; Marvel is offering an adaptation of The Stand.

This used to be one of my favorite books.

Used to be because, like my love of David Brin's The Postman, my love was diluted by subsequent ham-fisted movie and T.V. adaptations.

Still, I'm going to be reading this, and hoping they can capture Stephen King's doomed aura. To me, this is the best King book, not the DT.

Well, I'm looking forward to it, anyway. I have to admit, DT charmed my socks off.... But the Walkin Dude will always have a special place in my heart. If nothing else, think of the eye candy!
