Stephen King's The Stand from Marvel

The first issue of Stephen King‘s The Stand is to hit from Marvel Comics in September. Once you cut through all the backslabbing hoobah in the press release it basically comes out that it’s based on the uncut version (four color pistol sodomy!). Also, Big Love scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will adapt with Captain America artist Mike Perkins doing the art chores.

“There’s nothing more interesting–and more fun–than seeing an old work take on new life in a new medium.” states Stephen King. “I’ve enjoyed working with Marvel on The Gunslinger series, and am excited about this collaboration regarding The Stand, which will bring Stu Redman, Frannie Goldsmith, Lloyd Henreid, and Randall Flagg to a new audience.”

Joe Quesada then gushed about plans to have the first Gunslinger/Wolverine crossover in first quarter 2009.

Actually, though, wouldn’t it be hilarious to see Roland of Gilead crossover into so many comics that he would turn into the Logan or Punisher of our time?

No. No, on second that there’s absolutely nothing funny about that idea. But you know it’s been proposed.
