    So when they make a movie of the comic, will they cast Ryan Reynolds?

    So being a big, BIG fan of “Castle” (that and ‘The Mentalist’ are like tv-heroin to me for some reason), I was watching the teevee when he popped said cover out for public viewing… Since I was watching on DVR I slow-motion replayed the scene because I thought I saw a Marvel logo somewhere — which was confirmed. Off to the Googles I went, to search for “Derek Storm Marvel Comics”, and I didn’t find _ANYTHING_, not even this story. I had to come here the old-fashioned way, browse through the headlines and then have a mini-omg moment upon seeing this ‘post’. Thank you, Major Spoilers, for being the WONDERFULLY informative and useful site that you are. :D

    Ugh, why put the big Castle logo on the cover. Kinda kills the fantasy; just slap a sticker on it somewhere like the Nikki Heat novels.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
