Last year saw the release of a Castle related graphic novel with “Castle’s Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm,” a graphic novel by Brian Bendis, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Lan Medina and Tom Raney which was quite enjoyable as a fan of the show (we even got the opportunity to advance review it thanks to an Amazon screw-up). This year sees another entry into that series as Bendis and DeConnick pick up the writer pen again, this time joined by Emanuela Lupacchino for the second “adaptation” of Richard Castle’s novels about Derrick Storm. Today sees us giving you your first peek at the interior of the book!
Here’s a four-page preview for you:
I haven’t personally watched Castle at all during the pat season (I watch too much TV as is, it’s getting hard to keep up), but I can’t help but be excited for a new Bendis/DeConnick collaboration.
For the full press release from Marvel, please see below.
