TheStand_CaptainTrips_PremiereHC.jpgNo, we are not changing our coverage to football and sports related talk, rather Marvel’s adaptation of the first volume of Stephen King’s The Stand is getting the hard cover treatment this March. Unlike other trades and deluxe editions which filter their way to Amazon, B&N, and other outlets, this hard cover is being released exclusively to direct market retailers.

“Marvel is excited to present this unique opportunity to our partners in the direct market who’ve helped make The Stand such a success,” explained David Gabriel, Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales. “We appreciate their overwhelming support for The Stand: Captain Trips and want to thank them with the option of either the regular cover or the limited edition gatefold cover.”

The Stand: Captain Trips Premiere Hardcover arrives March 11, 2009 for $24.99.

    Actually, that’s a bit misleading. In actuality, the Stand: Captain Trips premier hardcover is going to be exclusive to comic shops for……One day. Then, it will be available through other retailer, like the aforementioned Amazon.com
