Stephen King‘s “The Stand” (along side “The Dark Tower” masterpiece of course) are considered by fans as Mr. Kings Magnum Opus.

The recent news has it that after the highly adaptation of “The Gunslinger” into a graphic novel, Marvel will be doing the same for the classic apocalyptic novel “The Stand”

The production will oversee the whole project being the acting as a creative supervisor, and itโ€™s going to be written by Roberto Sacasa, with art by Mike Perkins and covers by Lee Berjemo.

The first issue will be released by September of this year

There are unanswered question still:

  • How many issues will the series run?
  • Is this going to be a direct adaptation?
  • Or is it going to be like The Dark Tower in that it will be a kind of spin-off?

Stephen King fans are surely excited about this! Including me! I have my own set of The Gunslinger marvel comics myself! ๐Ÿ˜€
