The Dark Tower series (King) is in my top 10 all-time fiction reads. The movie adaptation of "The Mist" was incredible...the ending was perfect.

I didn't even know about this until I got an email. The Stand is in my Top 10 Books of all time. This was released today:

Don’t Miss THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #1 Midnight Opening!

Marvel is proud to unveil the complete list of retailers participating in the landmark midnight opening to commemorate the release of THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #1.


Click over to http://www.marvel.com/news/comicstories.4757 to see which retailers are hosting this event at their stores, beginning the next epic comic book series from Stephen King and Marvel Comics!

Acclaimed writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four, Angel Revelations) brings the first of several limited series to life this month in THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #1 (of 5)! The Stand, which is commonly deemed as King's most popular novel, is a story of Biblical proportions; after a government-made virus mows down majority of the human race, the few survivors must band together in order to survive. With visually stunning interiors from Eisner-nominated artist, Mike Perkins (Captain America, House of M: Avengers), the human race is going make their last stand! Plus, a mind blowing, sketch variant from acclaimed artist Lee Bermejo and the first of five connecting variant covers from Perkins!

I Second the Dark Tower. Its his Opus, without a doubt.

Also enjoyed Needful Things, the book, as well as Bag of Bones.

Couldn't stand Tommy Knockers but enjoyed the audio book for Dream Catcher. Also did kind of like the Stand the 1st time I read it, but then I listened to the Dark Tower series on Audio Book and the Stand just doesn't....Stand Up to it.

I really liked Twilight Eyes and Lightning, and Phantoms was also a great read.
