Castle graphic novel by Bendis, DeConnick, Medina on the way

Publishers try to keep new projects under wraps, but there’s a whole cottage industry out there of folks who look through the Amazon listings for new books. The latest one, spotted by Albert Ching of Blog@Newsarama: A listing for Castle: Deadly Storm, by Brian Michael Bendis, Kelly Sue DeConnick, and Lan Medina. Albert goes out on a fairly short limb and guesses that this is a graphic novel (Medina is listed as the illustrator) based on the ABC series Castle, and indeed, the Hachette Book Group International catalog confirms this—check out page 65. Quick plot summary: This “adaptation” of Derrick Storm’s first novel adventure takes our hero from the gritty world of the private eye all the way to the globe-hopping intrigue of the CIA.” The book is hardcover, 112 pages, full color priced at $19.99 (already discounted to $13.59 on Amazon) and published by Marvel.

Manga blogger Lissa Pattillo has spotted a few more finds on Amazon.ca (Lissa is Canadian, so all prices are in Canadian dollars, but it looks like the U.S. prices are almost the same): a Fullmetal Alchemist box set that includes all 27 volumes of the manga, a novel, and other extras, all for $219 (discounted to $137.93) and due out in November, and an omnibus edition of Osamu Tezuka’s Dororo, 880 pages of Tezuka goodness for $29.95 $23.32.

Not sure how I feel about this. I love Castle and I’ve enjoyed probably more than I haven’t of Bendis, but I’m not positive these two are a good fit.

…But I’ll probably end up buying it anyway.

Should this prove true: Bendis continues to spread himself too thin. . .

Doe’s the Castle graphic novel contain clues to the cliffhanger?

Rick Castle introduced the Derrick Storm Graphic Novel at the bigging of the final episode of season three. The episode ends in a cliffhanger and I think Rick might have dropped us a clue!

This morning my wife and I chatted about the final episode and speculated on season four. I remembered that Kevin Smith wrote a Graphic Novel in the mid-nineties that connected the movies Chasing Amy and Dogma. Want to know about Jay and Silent Bob’s journey to Chicago, then check it out Chasing Dogma!

I figure it this way! Ryan Carried that Derrick Storm book around in every episode of Season two. I knew it meant something, and sure enough, it was a clue from the writers to check out the Derrick Storm books. They secretly let it slip the book wasn’t just a prop. I believe the graphic novel is the same clue and we should pick it up.
