Looks like last fall’s Castle graphic novel Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm did well enough that they’re planning a sequel.
Richard Castle’s Storm Season will be written by the same team of Brian Michael Bendis & Kelly Sue DeConnick. It’s due out October 17 with same-day release of print and digital versions. The artist has been changed, however; the first book was drawn by Lan Medina with cover by Carlo Pagulayan. This one will have art by Emanuela Lupacchino (described as a “rising star” who’s previously worked on X-Factor) with cover by Dustin Weaver. The plot description is as follows:
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.
Here’s the promotional quote by a fictional character:
“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.”
