MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT & ABC STUDIOS ANNOUNCE ALL-NEW “CASTLE” HARDCOVER GRAPHIC NOVEL
03/12/12 @ 3:31 pm EST
Source: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

Sequel To New York Times Best-Selling Original Graphic Novel Based on ABC Primetime Hit Series Arrives October 2012

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, iBookstore, 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.”

The annual fan march through the core began at Eau Claire Market at 11 a.m. and finished at Olympic Plaza for the official kick-off of a weekend chock-full of TV stars, artists, sci-fi icons and cosplay.

'AGENT CARTER' SEASON 2 LOOKS LESS LIKELY FOLLOWING LATEST MARVEL/ABC NEWS

Ever since the conclusion of its first season earlier this year, many hardcore Marvel fans have been asking for is a second season renewal to the beloved ABC event-series, Agent Carter. However, the reality of the show’s situation is its period setting and movie caliber star Hayley Atwell raises the price per episode substantially for a series that ultimately tracked well below Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.in the same timeslot.

Now, thanks to two new updates on the Marvel TV front via ABC, the chances of the series seeing the light of day again are slimmer than ever.

According to two updates from EW, one from earlier this week and one from earlier today, ABC is working to develop a new spin-off series to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in addition to also teaming with American Crime executive producer/12 Years a Slave writer John Ridley for a new “mysterious series.” Based on the two reports, it remains unclear if the John Ridley project is indeed the same one as the S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, but even if it’s not, given the Ridley development in particular, the business side of Agent Carter simply doesn’t seem as viable as a renewal of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does.

To its credit, Agent Carter was a show designed with a finite eight episodes in mind. By the end of the season finale, every major thread had been resolved and a fan-service post-credit scene did a great job at looping the series back into the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. From a story perspective, there’s no incentive to renew Agent Carter, which wouldn’t be a death nail if it wasn’t for the fact that the season finale tracked in a series low rating of 4.02 million viewers overall with a 1.3 share in the 18-49 demo. On its worst day, S.H.I.E.L.D. tracked a 1.4 in 18-49 with 3.73 million overall – the higher 18-49 rating being the key factor. In its most recent episode, the series tracked a 1.6 in demo with 4.04 million viewers overall. Critical reception aside, S.H.I.E.L.D. is a better rated show for ABC.

--While it was nice to be able to enjoy Agent Carter knowing it wouldn’t leave storylines hanging, the lack of performance means there’s no incentive for ABC executives to order more episodes. In the end, the show served its purpose in keeping the S.H.I.E.L.D.timeslot warm during its break so as to allow for more consistent episode runs of 10 and 12 non-stop weeks in the fall and spring – which are basically the things that saved S.H.I.E.L.D.’s ratings. Ultimately, it seems like the better play. A new series in the holiday break slot will open up ABC to more varieties of Marvel programming and potential new audiences. The odds of Cartergrowing in audience past what it has are slim, but the odds of a new series tracking with more viewers seems very likely at the moment.

In his weekly CBR column "Axel-in-Charge," Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso confirmed that writer Jeff Lemire had more work for Marvel on the way.

"This was Jeff's first retreat," Alonso shared when asked about a photo of the retreat that had surfaced online.

"Jeff was a great addition to the room. He had a lot of great ideas and his constructive criticism helped shape some of the ideas in formation. I get the sense that he was thirsty to experience this kind of dynamic... this collaborative challenge. 'Hawkeye' is just the tip of the iceberg of what Jeff will be bringing to the Marvel Universe," Alonso writes.

"All-New Hawkeye" is Lemire's first Marvel Comic. He is currently writing a creator owned series with Dustin Nguyen called "Descender," which has been optioned for a film by Sony, and worked on popular DC Comics titles like "Green Arrow" and "Animal Man."

San Jose is about to be overwhelmed with Comic Cons. Wizard World San Jose is going to be held September 4th-5th. The Alternative Press Expo, now run by Dan Vado and SLG Publishing, will be held October 3rd-4th. This weekend is Big Wow Comic Fest, (formerly known as Super-Con before some other convention in Florida took the name) which has some of the best guest to attendee ratio for a local convention.

But on the eve of Big Wow, an announcement has been made. Steve Wozniak, co-founder of a little company you may have heard of called Apple, has announced that in collaboration with Stan Lee, he’s going to be running a new convention in San Jose March 19-20th. Silicon Valley Comic Con has also acquired Big Wow as a subsidiary convention, and will be promoting the new event at the convention starting tomorrow.

Stan Lee’s name, while seemingly attached to this endeavor solely to provide geek cred, goes imply that the Man himself will be a guest of honor, but that remains to be seen. (Source: Bleeding Cool)

Michelle MacLaren exited Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman movie amid what was called “creative differences” in early reports. Emerging new details shed light on the specifics of those differences, and hint at what kind of film Warner Bros. wants Wonder Woman to be.

Multiple Sources tell Variety that MacLaren’s vision of Wonder Woman was an epic origin story similar to Braveheart. Warner Bros. reportedly wants to go a different route, with a more character-driven narrative and less action, a movie they believe the newly hired director Patty Jenkins can provide.

Warner Bros. moved quickly to find a new director in order to keep Wonder Woman on schedule, and is now moving quickly to get Jenkins up to speed on the pre-production that has been done already. The next step is reportedly casting the male love interest to play opposite Gal Gadot. Warner Bros. is said to be sending test offers to several actors sometime in the coming week.

Wonder Woman is scheduled for theatrical release on June 23, 2017.
