Three bands of weary survivors regroup — all sharing the desperation of survival in a world bereft of hope and the deadening desolation of the soul that comes with it. But when the hard work of living to see another day is done, there come the dreams: of an old, guitar-playing black woman on a front porch in Nebraska, offering the promise of hope. But “Mother Abagail” shares the dreamscape with nightmare visions of the “Dark Man”, Randall Flagg. As these two battle in the hearts, minds and dreams of the last standing, who will be the “soul survivor?” Collecting The Stand: Soul Survivors #1-5. MAR120688 $19.99

THE STAND VOLUME 3: SOUL SURVIVORS TP (MR)

Who are the Hardcases? Like the rest of the one percent who outlived the worldwide sweep of death known as “Captain Trips”, they are survivors. But as followers and acolytes of the Dark Man, Randall Flagg, they are enforcers of a nihilistic plan that will reshape the new world in his image. One of them, the Trashcan Man, satisfied his hunger for fire by burning Gary, Indiana, to the ground. And now that he’s heard the Dark Man’s calling, drawing him halfway across the country to Las Vegas, there’s no turning back. It’s time for the whole world to burn.

Signs of life are returning to Boulder, and those who chose to follow Mother Abagail have made a new home tucked inside the Rocky Mountains. But Larry Underwood and Fran Goldsmith don’t feel so optimistic. A dark vibration shakes Boulder’s foundation, Harold Lauder’s secrets come out into the open, and Nadine Goldsmith begins to display ever more bizarre behavior. The pull of Randall Flagg will prove irresistible as Harold and Nadine begin their trip west… Collecting The Stand: No Man’s Land #1-5. OCT120693 $19.99
