Marvel made a big announcement on Monday that they will be releasing a graphic novel based on the popular ABC detective show Castle. Titled Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm, the 112-page hardcover will feature a story written by Brian Michael Bendis (Powers, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (Osborn), and will feature art by Lan Medina (Fables) with a cover by Carlos Pagulayan (Hulk).
The story will center on the character of Derrick Storm, the fictional detective created by the fictional writer Richard Castle (played by Nathan Fillion on the television series). So it is not a story about the characters from the show, rather it is about characters created by the characters from the show. This won’t be the first time that ABC Studios has released material “written” by Richard Castle, as there are 3 mystery novels already available. However, this will be the first time a novel has been released featuring the character that made Castle famous (on the show).
Axel Alonso, Marvel Entertainment Editor in Chief, said of the project, “It’s exciting to bring the Derrick Storm novels to life for the first time ever. Whether you’re new to the world of ‘Castle’ or a long time fan, there’s something for everyone in CASTLE: RICHARD CASTLE’S DEADLY STORM—and it’s the kind of book that reaffirms Marvel’s commitment to creating new fans of comic books.”
