We also get a first glimpse of Mother Abigail in one of Nick’s dreams. It’s only a quick glimpse but it looks like Mike has gotten her fairly right. Hopefully we’ll see more of her in the next issue.
As usual the drawings and coloring is just right. The characters look very good and the coloring sets the mode of the story perfect. The team has definitely captured the feel of the book. And even though I realize I’m starting to sound like a broken record I must tell you that The Stand is one of the best comics I have encountered. I really love this one and I can’t wait for the next story act to begin.
The bonus material in the issue is a text by Lee Bermejo (who has done the cover) in which he talks about making montages, something he used to hate…
The second thing we get is a look back at American Nightmares from Mike Perkins. Then we also get the script to final that we’re getting used to as well as a sketch version of the variant cover for this issue and a sneak peak at the variant cover for issue #1 of Sole Survivors.
