Critics are raving about the creative team behind The Stand: Captain Trips:

 

"Aguirre-Sacasa deserves a lot of credit for so aptly weaving various chapters together into a cohesive narrative. The writer has covered a lot of ground in a short time, and I’m not sure there has ever been a point where the comic has come up lacking." Jesse Schedeen, IGN.Com

 

"Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa does such a phenomenal job capturing the tone and the spirit of the book it’s hard to believe King isn’t whispering in his ear as he writes the scripts. The art by Mike Perkins and the coloring by Laura Martin could not fit the story better if they tried." Jeff Dixon, iFanboy.com
