The Stand Sketchbook debuted at Wizard World Chicago, but it is now making its way to comic book stores. The Stand Sketchbook is being released to stores on Wednesday, July 2, 2008. The sketchbook features never before seen art from The Stand: Captain Trips interior artist Mike Perkins and cover artist Lee Bermejo. The sketchbook also features exclusive commentary both from the artists of The Stand: Captain Trips and from writer Robert Aguirre-Sacasa. One of the best things about The Stand Sketchbook is its price. It's free. The first issue of the five issue mini-series The Stand: Captain Trips is scheduled to hit comic book stores on August 7, 2008. It's not free, but is only $3.99 per issue. There will also be a The Stand color poster, released on August 20, 2008.
