Preview: The Stand #2

Posted by Luke Brown On September - 19 - 2008

We’ve got an early look at the next part of Marvel’s adaptation of The Stand after the jump. I never read The Stand before I picked up issue one, and now I really want to. I think I should’ve done that a long time ago. Thanks Mike Perkins and Robert Aguirre-Sacasa.

After its critically acclaimed debut this month, one of the years most anticipated new series, from World Fantasy Award-winning writer Stephen King, continues in The Stand: Captain Trips #2 (of 5)! Acclaimed writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four, Angel: Revelations) gives the apocalyptical novel new life with beautiful interiors from the Eisner-nominated artist, Mike Perkins (Captain America, House of M: Avengers). As the unseen killing super-flu, Captain Trips, spreads disease and death across the country, the US government has taken a keen interest in Stuart Redman, who seems to be the only person immune to the Captain Trips infection. With or without Stu’s cooperation, they are determined to find out why! Then, in Maine, something terrible falls upon Frannie Goldsmith and her father! In New York City, out of 8 million people, pop-star Larry Underwood may be the only one still alive! And Nick Andros runs into more trouble than he can handle when he makes a wrong turn in Shoyo, Arkansas! Plus, a mind blowing regular cover and a sketch variant cover from acclaimed artist Lee Bermejo and the second of five connecting variant covers from Perkins – this is a must for any King fan!

AintItCoolNews.com raves, “The artwork is fantastic, the story is spot-on, and Marvel hits a home-run with THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS…It is a rare treat for new and old fans of King’s epic.”

Dan Phillips of IGN.com said, “If you decide you’re not quite open to a thousand-page commitment, you have this immensely faithful and competent comic book adaptation to enjoy. There’s no excuse not to pick up one or the other.”

Why does Stu keep having nightmares about a dark man standing in a cornfield with red eyes? Don’t miss the next exciting chapter in the horror epic, commonly deemed Stephen King’s best work, in The Stand: Captain Trips #2 (of 5)!
