Adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and illustrated by Mike Perkins, Marvel's The Stand: Captain Trips #1 (2008) details the accidental release of a fast-acting viral bio-weapon that will shortly decimate the world's population!
Marvel needed six mini-series from 2008 to 2012 to adapt the 1990 revised and expanded edition of the already-massive 1978 novel!
Trivia: Randall Flagg, a character who appears in many of King's stories, unifying them into one "multiverse", makes his debut in The Stand novel.
But, in comics, he premiered in Marvel's Dark Tower adaptation, which was published before The Stand!
