Re: Spider-man books

I want to see more original novelizations though of Marvel/DC. Someone should really acquire the license. And as I said before, Agents of Shield would make for a great book series.

Re: Spider-man books

Original novelization is an oxymoron. Either it's original or an adaption/novelization.

Like I said before, Rocket Raccoon & Groot: Steal the Universe, is an original story. If it is successful, I wouldn't be at all surprised if we see more.
While they aren't still in print, the old DC and Marvel novels are sill available through third party sellers on sites like Amazon.

Re: Spider-man books

Speaking of Marvel novels, I saw a new one at B&N tonight.

The Death of Captain America by Larry Hama is a prose novelization of the comic-book story line from a few years ago. It's currently out in hardcover.

Re: Spider-man books

I had that one in my list. I didn't even realize it existed until I was putting looking books up for the list.
Isn't Larry Hama best known for GI comics?

GI Joe comics, that is. Hama also created most of the character backstories for the action figures and TV show, apparently, based in part on a rejected proposal for a Nick Fury spinoff (although Cobra was not, as one would expect, inspired by HYDRA).

Yeah, at the risk of being shamelessly self-promotional, it's not uncommon to publish novelizations of story lines that originally appeared in the comics: DC has done it with The Death of Superman, Knightfall, No Man's Land, and my own novelizations of Infinite Crisis, 52, Countdown, and Final Crisis . . . .
I really enjoyed your DC novelizations, Greg. I still can't believe how successfully you managed to distill the monster-length 52 into a smaller-scaled novel. I wish they'd gotten you to do a Blackest Night or Flashpoint novel, though...

Thanks! I'm proud of that book, which was indeed a challenge. And then I had to do it again with the novelization of Countdown, which was another sprawling 52-issue saga.

And, yeah, I was disappointed that we didn't do a novelization of Blackest Night. Zombie superheroes would have been fun.

On the other hand, I did get to novelize that scene in Final Crisis where Wonder Woman fights Frankenstein, so I can die happy now. (Thank you, Grant Morrison.)

Ooops. Yeah, I meant GI Joe.

Frankly, I don't know how you managed to get anything out of Countdown. There was a story which was not only unfocused, it didn't even fit with the continuity of what it was supposed to be counting down to!

Ah well, maybe the novelisations will come back someday. I'd love to see what you could do with Forever Evil.

Re: Spider-man books

I've been reading the "Mutant Empire" trilogy for the past little while. The trilogy definitely feels like it could've been a 6th season multi-episode story.
