Sequel To New York Times Best-Selling Original Graphic Novel Based on ABC Primetime Hit Series Arrives October 2012
“I WAS REALLY DRAWN TO THE IDEA OF LOTHAR BECOMING THE PHANTOM” – BRIAN CLEVINGER TALKS KING: THE PHANTOM #101/28/15 @ 10:14 pm EST
Marvel Entertainment and ABC Studios are proud to announce Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season, an all-new hardcover graphic novel inspired by the popular “Castle”
television series. This 112 page hardcover, based the titular novel from noted author Richard Castle, hits comic shops, the Marvel Comics app
, Nook Bookstore and everywhere books are sold on October 17th, 2012.
Private Investigator Derrick Storm is hired to bug the hotel suite of an African head of state, but this routine mission quickly spirals out of control when Storm overhears a woman’s terrifying scream on the wire. Plagued by the victim’s helpless cry, Storm—despite an ominous warning—investigates the truth. Soon he’ll discover an international conspiracy reaching further than he ever imagined…and perhaps the truth about Clara Strike, a CIA Agent the world thinks is dead.
“As a comic book fan, I couldn’t be more excited about Brian and Kelly Sue bringing Derrick Storm to life once again in Storm Season” said Richard Castle. “Storm is a character near and dear to my heart, so I wouldn’t trust him with many people, but he is in some incredibly capable hands with this team.”
This is the second “Castle” original graphic novel to be released through a collaborative effort between Marvel, ABC Studios and the producers of “Castle.” In 2011, Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm dominated sales charts and garner worldwide acclaim.
“Marvel has done an amazing job of bringing Derrick Storm to a new audience and we’re thrilled to keep the magic going with this next graphic novel.” said Andrew W. Marlowe, “Castle” creator/executive producer. “Fans can look forward to another fantastic adventure, filled with page-turning excitement. Storm Season is Richard Castle at his finest.”
Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Storm reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis & Kelly Sue DeConnick (Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm) for their second Castle story. They’re joined by rising star artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), whose dynamic interior artwork brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before. This original graphic comes wrapped in a stunning cover by acclaimed artist Dustin Weaver (S.H.I.E.L.D.).
“The Derrick Storm novels are full of action, intrigue and compelling characters—it’s no surprise that our graphic novel adaptations have taken the literary world by storm!” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Entertainment Editor in Chief. “Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season will be one of the most exciting graphic novels you read all year, whether you’re a longtime fan of Richard Castle or new to his exciting stories.”

LADY KILLER SELLS OUT, GOES TO SECOND PRINT RUN01/28/15 @ 8:08 pm EST
When we get these writer to writer interviews, we’re never quite sure what we are going to get. This one is short but fun as Ben Acker
and Ben Blacker,
writers on KING: Flash Gordon
#1, talks with writer Brian Clevinger
about KING: Phantom
#1, both on sale today.BEN ACKER AND BEN BLACKER: Did you grow up reading The Phantom?BRIAN CLEVINGER:
Nope. In fact, I managed to accidentally avoid The Phantom
at every turn! Never got to see the newspaper strip, still have not seen the movie despite the fact that I would gladly watch Billy Zane read from a phone book, never so much as heard of the Defenders of the Earth
cartoon, and always managed to miss The Phantom 2040
cartoon. But being an outsider, I think, turned out to be helpful since it mirrors Lothar’s perspective coming into things.BEN A&B: Was there a thing — a story thing or a character thing — that made you eager to writeThe Phantom? BC:
I was really drawn to the idea of Lothar becoming The Phantom. He was probably my favorite character in the Kings Watch
event, so it was great to see him take up the legacy of The Phantom. On a strictly nuts and bolts level, I thought that was a great way to shed any baggage the property may have picked up in the public consciousness and still honor what makes The Phantom cool and interesting for its loyal fan base
.BEN A&B: What do you think of the art of Brent Schoonover?BC:
More please, thank you.BEN A&B: We love Atomic Robo [Brian’s indy book]!BC:
Is that a question?BEN A&B: Do you yourself read any monthly comics?BC:
Who has time?! No, I’m a filthy trade waiter. Even then, the pile of bought comics is not necessarily the pile of read comics.

, or Eric Powell on The Goon
, or Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips on The Fade Out
,” said Dark Horse’s editor in chief, Scott Allie. “Joëlle’s drawn a lot of other people’s stories, but only she could’ve used midcentury fashion, espionage, and ultraviolence to create such a perfectly modern comic.”

In RED ONE, it's 1977—the height of the Cold War between the USSR and the US—and the Kremlin has a plan to win the war against Uncle Sam: propaganda!
Vera Yelnikov is an elite agent in the Soviet Army during the Cold War—she IS the atomic bomb. Vera is sent to Los Angeles by her bosses at the Kremlin. Her mission? Become a true "American superhero." She must spearhead a propaganda operation of communist values from within the United States and fight against the "Carpenter"—a fascist serial killer who blames America's ills on liberals.

OFF THE PRESS - TWILIGHT ZONE: SHADOW & SUBSTANCE #1 01/28/15 @ 9:22 am EST
The skies fracture. The ground trembles. The end of all they know is coming. Heroes, Gods of Mischief and Masters of Magnetism who have faced annihilation more times than they could count and walked away. Only this time, there is no walking away. Today, Marvel is pleased to present the first issues of three blockbuster LAST DAYS
stories, leading in to the highly-anticipated Secret Wars.
Beginning in May, be there as your favorite Marvel heroes face their final hours, and the obliteration of the Marvel Universe!
First, Al Ewing and Luke Ross bring you a story of the people who faced the end of the world together, shoulder to shoulder in the face of destruction in CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #8
. Some of them wore costumes, and some of them didn’t. Some of them had super-human powers, and all some had were each other. Yet they were all Mighty Avengers in the end. And this is how they spent their last day.
Then, ask yourself – what will your legacy be when it’s all over? Cullen Bunn and Javi Fernandez have the answers in MAGNETO #18
. The Mutant Master of Magnetism has learned his time is all but spent. A life of struggle and torment brought to a cataclysmic end at the destruction of all things. With everything he’s fought for his whole life brought to its unavoidable ending, how will he cope? Will he celebrate his legacy – or be tormented by it?
Finally, the end of the Marvel Universe extends into Asgard and beyond as all the Ten Realms face their final hours in LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD #14
. Al Ewing and Lee Garbett bring you the curtain call of the God of Mischief. Ancient enemies march on Asgardia seeking their final vengeance – including King Loki, meaner, madder and more dangerous than before. Where is our Loki? What tragedy has befallen him, here at the end?
Before Secret Wars can begin, the Marvel Universe must end. And it all starts this May as the LAST DAYS
story arcs begin in Captain America & the Mighty Avengers #8
, Loki: Agent of Asgard #14
, and Magneto #18

Dynamite; $3.99 According to Thomas Wolfe, “You can’t go home again.” But Mr. Wolfe didn’t mention anything about going home to your past. In the first issue of Twilight Zone a successful writer flies back to his hometown for a book signing. What he finds is more than he anticipated when he finds himself face to face with his younger self. Upon encountering his younger self, he must decide if he should help the troubled, abused boy or leave him to suffer knowing what the future holds after that suffering is endured. The story written by Mark Rahner is very interesting both for its philosophical and ethical quandary. The question posed to this man is one anybody would struggle to answer. On top of that is the eerie, unsettling feeling leading up to these moments. The weight of the title is enough to warn readers that this plane ride will not be the usual trip. Edu Menna’s art aides the story by drawing characters with haggard visages, setting the tone for a story both complicated and thought provoking. This first issue comes with covers by Guiu Vilanova, Francesco Francavilla, Jay Shaw, and Jonathan Lau.
