    Normally I am strictly a DC Comics guy, but I am a big fan of the show Castle. These graphic novels are based off of the books Richard Castle wrote about Derrick Storm. This graphic novel follows right after the events in Deadly Storm. Derrick Storm is still a private detective, but now he is also a spy working for the CIA.

Derrick Storm is still a private detective, but now he is also a spy working for the CIA. After recently loosing his first CIA handler, he is trying to throw himself into his work. Helping a wealthy heiress get back the money she was conned out of, Storm comes across an African Freedom fighter. The Freedom fighter tracks Storm down and begs him to find his sister who is trapped in a human traffic ring. I thought this was a great plot especially for a comic book. There is quite a bit of action in this book, and the artwork is really well done. Like any spy novel there are gun fights, chases and beautiful women. One in particular make Storm think he has seen a ghost. This is the second graphic novel in the Derrick Storm series, and I think they are a lot of fun. If you are a fan of the show but not a fan of comics, I would recommend this. It is a lot of fun as a fan to read these stories that we hear about on the show. The fact it is in a comic makes it even better for me. If you are fan of comics and not the show, I would still recommend this. The story is interesting and the artwork is well done. This is definitely worth the read.

    So here is the thing I am a HUGE Castle fan and have read and loved the Nikki Heat series but somehow I never felt like reading the Derrick Storm novels. Shame on me. why I went and picked them up in the store anyways was because my friend dragged me into a comic book store on our first NYC visit ever which was a dream come true btw. But what's important here is that if it wasn't for her I would have never picked these up as I own the first 3 and boy am I happy she made me do it.

    As I mentioned when I reviewed the first book of the series, it feels like these not only let you into the world of Castle´s writing before he joined Beckett, but also into his life. It´s like you are suddenly allowed to see a different side of him. I really enjoyed the intrigue and how, even though absolutely hilarious, it feels so emotionally rich. There seems to be a lesson trying to come off these pages, one that Castle might have written more to himself than to his audience.

    Well...I guess graphic novels aren't going to be my thing. I really enjoyed the two books that Castle wrote on this character but in this comic book Derrick Storm appears weak and whiney. Graphics and illustrations were really something though.

    I really enjoyed this volume, both the writing and the artwork. It really felt like I was reading something that could have been written by Richard Castle. It had the fun flair and quirky sense of humor that I have grown to expect from the character of Castle. All I can really say is that Bendis knocks my socks off with his writing, and his ability to set aside his own unique style and adapt himself to writing as somebody else, fictional though that somebody else may be, is nothing short of amaz I really enjoyed this volume, both the writing and the artwork.

The only real negative to this volume is that I now have to wait for another one, should another one ever be created...

    I'm still not sure about these. I still like and watch Castle, and I'm still reading all the tie-ins. This is better that the first Derrick Storm graphic novel. But it's not what I expected from the brief synopses. Derrick Storm comes across as a amateur bungler than as a hard boiled detective that the CIA would be interested in. So far in the first two stories Clara Strike is the competent one. Derrick is along for the clueless ride. In this story he actually less competent that in the first.

It was shorter that the first (and maybe too short). I still hold hope that Derrick Storm will mature into a solid character.

    I am a huge fan of the "Castle" tv show. I love Nathan Fillion. So I was excited when they decided to create the books. Derrick Storm is a private eye. He is not too smart but pretty lucky. He is a bit of a wise ass, just like Richard Castle was. I never was a big fan of comic books, that is why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. The plot is good, the dialog is cheesy (which is usually the case in comics), and the characters are great.

    "A man can become a monster before he realizes what he's done. When the realization dawns... it arrives in a loud chorus of quiet voices. It's whispered through fear, rage, and even shame. But truth and courage multiply in the presence of one another. And what begins as a din of whispers, is soon a deafening roar." - pag. 82

    I loved the show Castle, I am such a Nathan Fillion fan! I really enjoyed the story about Castle's main character in graphic novel form. Storm is a funny, charismatic character. I'm glad I stumbled across this at my library!

    Fun, very reminiscent of Castle. It would have benefited from a Beckett-like character to balance out all the over-sexed female characters.

    Pretty good. Definitely better than the first volume, not least because of better, more consistent artwork.

    Unlike the previous Derrick Storm graphic novel, Storm Season’s storyline is lacking and features confusing jumps as well as leaves unanswered questions.

    Ok, so the investment in the relationship is there. #3 is making much more sense to me now. Word of advice: read these in order, it'll safe you a headache. I like the art style, I have to admit.

Reading it in black and white small e-ink majorly detracts from the story. Storm manages to get himself in even more trouble, oddly revolving around the previously believed deceased Clara.

    Full of thrills, Castle: Richard Castle's Storm Season is an entertaining adventure. A tie-in with the ABC series Castle, the story follows author Richard Castle’s signature character Derrick Storm as he investigates a missing person case and ends up stumbling across a secret CIA operation into a corrupt African dictator. It’s not a particularly original or well-told story, but it works. The artwork however, is very good; especially the character designs and coloring.

    After several attempts with various authors' graphic novels, I assumed they were just not my cup of tea. But this one I actually liked! The artwork & dialogue were both impressive. My only complaint is that, like the other graphic novels by other authors/artists, why do all the women have to be overly busty with cleavage-plunging necklines?! Ugh. Also, Derrick Storm seemed a bit amateur/green in the action, with Clara Strike taking over as the predominate professional.

    I enjoy watching the TV series when I can find the time to watch it, so I bought these books as an experiment just to see what they are like. Well, as the supposed graphic novel adaptation of a fictional author's fictional author's novel, it's not bad, quite good in fact. I'd go so far as to say that it holds its own with the majority of graphic novels, and if you like the TV series you will like this. It really feels like the sort of book that the character Richard Castle would write.

    I remain flummoxed at comic book depictions of women. Even when miraculously given depth and written as capable, the artists still manage to make them inexplicably buxom and spilling out of their blouses. Like CIA agent attire should naturally be low cut. Scientist? Cleavage. Teacher? Cleavage. Mother? Cleavage. Politician? Cleavage. They would rewrite the Julia Child story into a winsome 20-something (well...18+ anyway) with a push-up bra. Sigh And before you say it.

    I had hoped that the graphic novels would be a good holdover until they publish the Derrick Storm novels but after flipping through a couple pages of "Deadly Storm" and trying to read this one I could not finish it. The overall effect came off as too cartoony for my taste. Why waste my time when I can now read the Derrick Storm e-book trilogy and picture his adventures in my own mind hopefully more realistic.

    Derrik Storm's second adaptation graphic-novel is just as great as the previous one. Here, we find Derrik Storm helping an investigation of a woman screaming. We not only see who his CIA handler is now, after Clara Strike has passed away, or so we all thought. I love Derrik's dialouge and his antics to come up with the truth. The artwork in this book is amazing, the story is wonderfully told. Can't wait to read more Derrik Storm's graphic-novels, and novels perhaps.

    I'm really glad that Lupacchino did the artwork I know her from X-factor and really like her art. The story was much better paced and much more entertaining than the first one. It might be because the first one is origin story and while I didn't like it that much it is required reading in order to understand the characters and the situation of this one properly.

    I liked this one better than the first graphic novel. I appreciated the way the authors built on the Storm character and the events from the first book and added in some mystery. There's still all the witty dialogue and snarkiness from the first book and I could still feel the Castle/Fillion character bleeding into Derrick Storm.

    Its not that I just love graphic novels or anything, but I enjoy Castle and it is fun to read the tie-ins alone with the show. So as far as graphic novels go, its fine. I like the show better, but these are fine and since they are comics, they are quick reads. Plus it gives me a fix when I'm in between Castle episodes!

    Ashley

    3.5 stars. I really enjoy these tie-ins, but the GNs don't have a whole lot of meat to them. The story by Bendis and KSD is enjoyable, but there could be a lot more to it, I think. Regardless, fun and quick to read, and nice art.
