When you run down your monthly Previews list and see a Marvel hardcover listed as Premiere Edition, those are the copies that are sent to comic book stores.  With Stephen King’s The Stand: Captain Trips Premiere Hardcover, Marvel is making the edition available to anyplace books are sold.

The $24.99 premiere hardcover arrives in book stores nationwide beginning in January 2010.  While you can still go down to your local comic book shop, I wonder how the local comic book shop feels about this offer?

    I think the LCSs should be excited about this. If the book adverstises the other King titles that are being sold in LCSs and how to find your LCS. This could be a great gateway for new readers to get into comics.
