After its amazing debut last month, THE STAND: CAPTAIN TRIPS #2 (of 5) is on sale TODAY! Based on what is commonly deemed Stephen King's best work, join acclaimed writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (SECRET INVASION: FANTASTIC FOUR, ANGEL: REVELATIONS) and Eisner-nominated artist Mike Perkins (CAPTAIN AMERICA, HOUSE OF M: AVENGERS), as the deadly super-flu known as Captain Trips continues to spread across the U.S., killing everyone in its path! Meet Stuart Redman, a man the U.S. government has taken a particular interest in and happens to be the only person immune to the Captain Trips infection. Then, in New York City, see what's going on with pop-star Larry Underwood! And something terrible falls upon Frannie Goldsmith and her father! Also, find out what happens to Nick Andros when he takes a wrong turn in Shoyo, Arkansas! Plus, mind blowing regular & sketch variant covers 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."
Benjamin Birdie of ComicBookResources.com said, "Mike Perkins and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa do a fantastic job of adapting King's work here."
