THE MIDDLEMAN: THE DOOMSDAY ARMAGEDDON APOCALYPSE

I’m a fan of Javier Grillo-Marxuach’s Middleman and everyone involved with the comics and ABC Family TV series. Unfortunately, the show’s season finale was never shot, the powers-that-be deciding to cut Episode 13 and pump more money into Episode 12, “The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome.”

Fortunately, Grillo-Marxuach and Viper Comics brought the climactic, hugely revealing finale to the page.

The artwork is redone to match Natalie Morales, Matt Keeslar, Brit Morgan, and the gang, and you can just hear their inflection in the speech bubbles. This is the closure fans of any canceled show crave.

As great as the graphic novel is, YouTube clips of the Middleman table read from Comic-Con—including Grillo-Marxuach’s super-fanboy stage directions—are also a must-see.
