    Poll: The Stand: Cut & Uncut

    Years ago, when I read The Stand: Complete & Uncut for the first time, I read King's preface without really understanding his point in any but the loosest intellectual sense. Having never read the...

    I must say: thank all the gods who involve themselves with comics and/or graphic novels we won't be waiting until next damned February or March this time! And without creating any spoilers myself, I...

    Anyone in their right mind would say no! Now, if the CK had offered to share the throne and rule of the multiple worlds as they were, that's a whole other can of tuna. But no one with the wits Gods...

    Right. What looks like a spoiler to those of us who know the rest of the story won't mean anything to someone who's starting with the comics. They may, when they get to the books, have a better...

    Christ, you'd think such a powerful, magical being could at least have conjured himself some decent abs! What; is he just so evil that he doesn't care, or is it just that no one has the nerve to...

    Right. Even though he isn't involved on a daily basis, I don't think any of us would trust it if we didn't know he'd approved everything, and that he'd given them the outline- particularly, the...

    Reading everyone's theories and speculations above just reinforces, for me, what a wonderful thing this series is for us. If not for Marvel, we'd have nothing new to talk about for most of the year,...

    Never too busy. . .

    In spite of the fact that I constantly have too much to do, what with the fact that I'm still taking full-time care of my immobile, high maintenence roommate, I still made it up to the comic book...

    Wow, really? You can stand having it in the house, just sitting there for months, and not read it? I couldn't do that; no way in hell would I be able to pull that off! I agree in principle,...

    Go back and re-read the end-stories in the last arc. The CQ gives birth to Los soon after Arthur takes power- remember the original story of the Wizard's Rainbow? Queen Rowena's misfortune happens...

    If you're waiting for the full arc to be published and only reading the hardcover, you're missing half the story. So far, the hardcover neglects to...

    D.T. Comics Still Worth The Trip!

    Duma Key: A half-assed review. . .

    I finished the book at 4 this morning. When I sat down to resume reading around midnight, with about 200 pages to go, I wasn't expecting to finish it; I figured I'd read until roughly 2 AM then go...
