It’s the comic book that everyone’s talking about this week– THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #1 (of 5), the first graphic fiction adaptation of Stephen King’s acclaimed novel, is on sale NOW! 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. Written by acclaimed scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four) and featuring 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 regular cover and sketch variant cover from acclaimed artist Lee Bermejo and the first of five connecting variant covers from Perkins, this is a must for any King fan!

Fans and critics alike can’t stop raving about The Stand: Captain Trips #1!

“Aguirre-Sacasa and Perkins work magic with the subject matter they’re given. The Stand could wind up being a whole new entry point for non-fanboys to get into comics.”—WizardUniverse.Com

“This one’s a no-brainer for King and Marvel-Dark Tower fans, but I think that the casual or unconverted reader will also find a lot to appreciate”—Troy Brownfield, Newsarama.Com

“Can this project really live up to the standard set by the Dark Tower comics? Boy can it.”—Jesse Schedeen, IGN.Com
