I've never been to keen on the idea of the novelization of superheroes.
I don't know, I though that Roger Stern's 1993 novel adaption of the death of Superman was better than the comic version.
And the audio book version.
AND the 2007 animated movie version.
In short, I liked the novel better than any other adaption of that particular story.
Of course, that's just one example.
I remember my parents buying that one for me. I read it in one night. I consumed it like a McDonald's Happy Meal. Awesome book and yes, better than the comic. Much better.
