Goodreads Description:

CASTLE fans rejoice! For the first time anywhere, CASTLE's titular hero Derrick Storm comes to life in the pages of this all-new graphic novel. 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. Eisner Award-winning Marvel Architect Brian Bendis and red hot Osborn writer Kelly Sue DeConnick worked closely with CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe to create the one thing millions of CASTLE fans have been asking for: Their first real Derrick Storm adventure. A wall-to-wall, gritty, witty, globe-hopping detective thrill ride for fans of the hit TV show starring Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, as well as fans of darn good comic books.

This graphic novel was pretty fun. For those who don't know, the graphic novel is an adaptation of the books written by the author on the TV show Castle. I could 100% hear the Nathan Fillion character in Derrick Storm. And all the humor and snarkiness from the TV show could be heard in the lines of the graphic novel. The story itself was a bit unbelievable but I think that's the way the Derrick Storm novels are supposed to be. You know over the top and too much. But there were a couple of turns in this story that I didn't expect. Some questions left unanswered that I think could really build up to a good continuing storyline - - especially the one involving Storm's father. There's so much more going on with him. I can just feel it.

If you're a fan of Castle, I say give these graphic novels a try. You'll enjoy them.
