TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3417:
Yes, although Tina and I are both 'Castle' TV Show fans, I have to admit that we tape the show that airs on Monday nights, even though this past Monday's episode was the 2010-11 Season Finale!
I already mentioned on my Facebook Fan Page at 12:32PM on Monday, that Marvel had already posted a scan of the graphic novel that would be mentioned on the Monday evening screening. Which is seen at the top left of this blog post!
When we both watched the recorded episode last night, (after Glee!), I went back afterwards and re-played the beginning of the episode, when Richard Castle proudly showed off the original artwork to the upcoming graphic novel, as seen at the top right of this blog.
During that scene, Richard stated the following comments, and I'm somewhat paraphrasing in parts and combining it together... Castle questioned the two detectives, (Detective Javier Esposito and Detective Kevin Ryan), "You've heard of Wolverine, Batman, Betty and Veronica? They were fine for their day. There's a new sheriff on the spinner rack. This is the original artwork to my new graphic novel. It's epic cool that's what it is!".
Which quite honestly I thought was 'Pretty Cool!' for sure!
So you ask, why is this blog worthy?
Well... The photo under the scene from Monday's Season Finale, is from the Comic-Con International: San Diego. Yeah, the 'San Diego Comic Con'!
Last year's Castle panel's line to get in was cut off 2 hours before the panel was opening! They had already maxed out the room for attendees! And no, it wasn't in Hall H... but still... This was an overwhelming response to a TV show that granted, has thrown in a few lines of dialogue about comic books over the now three seasons aired, but that was amazing in itself!
I urge you to check out the upcoming graphic novel. And no, it's not about the 'Castle' TV Show itself or on the 'Nikki Heat' series of books, rather it's on Richard Castle's first series of stories on Derrick Storm. Here's a brief promo blurb on the graphic novel:
Marvel Entertainment and ABC Studios are proud to announce CASTLE: RICHARD CASTLE'S DEADLY STORM, an all-new hardcover graphic novel inspired by the popular “Castle” television series. This 112 page hardcover hits comic shops and bookstores everywhere on September 28, 2011. Fans can get a first look at the upcoming graphic novel when Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) reveals the cover on “Knockout,” the season finale of “Castle,” MONDAY, MAY 16 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
When viewers first met Richard Castle, he had reached celebrity author status with the success of his Derrick Storm mystery novels. In an unprecedented collaborative effort between Marvel, ABC Studios and the producers of “Castle,” the adventures of Derrick Storm will be chronicled in an all new graphic novel...
If you don't have a LCBS near you to purchase this from, then here's a link to where you can pre-order it online: Castle: Deadly Storm where it is already #553 on the Bestsellers List!
And I should mention the fine actors that have brought this TV Series to life, and made it one of Tina's and my Top 10 TV Shows that we have watched this Season:
“Castle” stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, Ruben Santiago-Hudson as NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, and Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan.
Looking forward to Season 4 of this TV series, as well as the graphic novel now!
