Unless you live under a rock or your commute is just hell as well as iPod-less, you’re heard about Stephen King’s *cough* The Stand, a thirty issue joint graphic novel venture between the King of Horror and Marvel Comics. If you “cough* haven’t picked issue #1 up yet (Captain Tripps released on September 12th) and still need convincing, there are a couple of ways to check out the mag:
First, there is a trailer *cough, cough* available here (for some reason Marvel took the vid off their site). Or take a peek at a free digital comic of The Stand, a sketchbook by artist Mike Perkins and cover artist Lee Bermejo.
If that only wets the whistle, head to King’s site and take a look at another Marvel bit, Dark Tower: Treachery. More goodies following Roland and his ka-tet. Kinda makes you want to head on down to the comic book store, eh? Disease, redemption and *cough* plague nonwithstanding. Just don’t head down any corpse filled tunnels on the way, dig?
