Horror Graphic Novel Series: The Stand

Horror Graphic Novels

Have you found yourself interested in reading the Marvel Comics adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand but been confused about which collection came first and what order to read them in?

I was.

My library had two of the six volumes (#2 and #5 as it turned out) and I had no idea where they were in the order or which of the other volumes listed on our webcatalog I should request first. So I requested all of them.

Once in my hands, (and with the help of my memory of the story), ordering them was pretty easy. To spare you the frustration I felt, I offer you this series list.

Stephen King’s The Stand breaks down into 6 books. Each book had 5 comic issues except book six which has 6 comics. Hardcover collection of each of the books is complete. The paperback reprints of the collections are still coming out.

The story is out there, finished and available to you. And its a good one, especially if you read the original
