‘The Middleman’ cast reunites for graphic novel script read

Following through on one of the promises of Javier Grillo-Marxuach’s successful Indiegogo campaign to fund a new Middleman graphic novel, the cast of the short-lived television adaptation reunited for a table read of The Pan-Universal Parental Reconciliation, which was of course captured on video.

“Why is this man smiling?” Grillo-Marxauch writes beneath a photo of himself at the reunion. “Might be that I am in the middle of one of the happiest moments in my middle-history!”

Debuting in 2005 from Viper Comics, The Middleman centers on Wendy Watson, a struggling young artist who’s recruited by a secret agency to fight evil alongside the Middleman, a title and job passed from one incarnation to the next. The comic, by Grillo-Marxauch and Les McClaine, was released as two miniseries and a graphic novel before it was optioned by ABC Family for a TV show starring Matt Keesler and Natalie Morales. Alas, it lasted for just 12 episodes. However, a subsequent graphic novel, billed as the show’s “series finale,” was published in 2009.

The Middleman, Vol. 5: The Pan-Universal Parental Reconciliation is available for purchase now.
