The Stand: The Graphical Novel

September 28, 2008

That’s me with my newest addition to my Stephen King collection.. Marvel Comic’s The Stand! Amazing! Bought it in Vancouver Canada for $4.25 CND

Already blogged about this on my other blog, read other details there. Also mentioned there something about redtube and xhamster but there really is no connection. Will dowload the movie The Stand to further remember the genius of Mr. Stephen King.

Yep that’s true, I’ve seen it. Marvel already released teh video trailer of their lates collaborative work with Stephen King, “The Stand”.

I couldn’t find any video of it yet on yuotube (Utube), that’s why I couldn’t post it here, but  you can check out this link to see if for yourself.

or at Marvel’s website

Exciting isn’t it? It sure is!

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 it’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! 😀
