Castle: Storm Season TPB

RICHARD CASTLE’S STORM SEASON HC

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Brian Michael Bendis, Kelly Sue DeConnick (A) Emanuela Lupacchino (CA) Dustin Weaver
The sequel to the critically acclaimed, best-selling graphic novel Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm! In this “adaptation” of Derrick Storm’s second novel, the private investigator is hired to bug an African head of state’s hotel suite – but the 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. 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! RICHARD CASTLE’S STORM SEASON reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis and Kelly Sue DeConnick for their second Castle story, and the dynamic artwork of rising star Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor) brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before.

Warlock Complete Collection TPB

WARLOCK BY JIM STARLIN TP COMPLETE COLLECTION

MARVEL COMICS

(W/A/CA) Jim Starlin

At ’70s Marvel, no one mastered the startling scope and high-concept complexity of cosmic adventure like Jim Starlin! And his work on Adam Warlock set the tone for star-spanning spectacle that is considered a high-water mark to this day. Starlin evolved Warlock to the next level, imbuing the character with the inner demons of a man-god on the brink of insanity. Forced to confront an evil version of himself and the nihilistic menace Thanos, Warlock’s conflicts weren’t just knuckle-grinding throw-downs – they were epic, existential struggles for his very soul. Featuring the first-ever assembling of the Infinity Gems; the debuts of Gamora and Pip the Troll; and an all-out struggle to save the universe joined by the Avengers, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man!

Collecting STRANGE TALES (1951) #178-181, WARLOCK (1972) #9-15, AVENGERS ANNUAL #7 and MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE ANNUAL #2.
