The brilliant but gone-too-soon Middleman series will return yet again.

Series creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach announced the triumphant return on his Tumblr, explaining that Middleman would return as a graphic novel that links the comic book to the TV series:

it will be a brand spankinā€™ new graphic novel bringing together the comic book and tv continuities.

crowdfunding will take place in the fourth quarter of 2013.

the original series cast has agreed to reunite for a live reading of the script to serve as a crowdfunding premium.

les mcclaine will return to draw the graphic novel.

the project will be released in time for sdcc 2014.

Our stance is a firm: Any new Middleman material is good. And the original cast reading the script, that's just icing on the monster cake. It's one week until Comic-Con 2013 and already we can't wait for Comic-Con 2014!
