The astounding tales of Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes and villains brought to thrilling life in exciting new prose novels of adventure and heroism.

It isn’t easy being extraordinary. Superhuman powers can be both a gift and a curse in a world where those talents can be used for good or evil. A lucky few are taught how to control their abilities at the Charles Xavier Institute, while others must master their uniquely dangerous powers alone. Will they become true heroes and heroines when called upon to defend the world, or turn their fearsome abilities to conquering the world? Meanwhile, in a realm beyond Earth, mighty heroes do battle with monsters of myth and undertake quests to restore peace and honor to the legendary halls of Asgard and the Ten Realms.

“ Annandale discusses his newest book, Reign of the Devourer, all things Dr. Doom, and takes a deep Marvel dive with the team at Mighty Marvel Geeks”

“I was so excited when I pitched Black Cat and Marvel loved it. It was so great to hear them say “hell yeah go make a Black Cat novel for us!””

Graymalkin Lane

“She’s just…gah, she’s so cool. I’ve always had a soft spot for heist stories, and especially in a universe that’s crowded with superpowered people, it’s a fun challenge to write about someone who doesn’t have a lot of those abilities at her disposal. Felicia’s got to be more thoughtful about how she pulls off her jobs, and that means teamwork. Her team is the best. Also, she’s bi, which spoke to me on a personal level. I appreciate so much about her, and had to make a play to write her book.” – Cath Lauria
The Book Network

CLW: “Oh there are quite a few classic stories that I drew inspiration from when plotting this novel, but I’m afraid delving too deeply into some of the sources might constitute spoilers. One thing I really like doing with the Legends of Asgard is to go back and revisit lesser known characters and expand on them.”

“Here’s a question: what connects Percy Bysshe Shelley, Howard the Duck, a vampire cow and a murderous surgeon? The answer is that they’re all influences author David Annandale drew upon in one way or another when writing his latest Marvel novel Reign of the Devourer”
Track of Words

“Readers can expect fun team pair ups in these novels, as well as a fond, yet frustrated, Cyclops, Magneto, and Emma Frost as they try to wrangle their students from getting into trouble and learn from their mistakes. What hypocrites, huh? Or perhaps they’re simply wise and mature now…”
Track of Words

“I’m really lucky in that I’ve gotten the opportunity to write some characters who really mean something to me. I’ve been a Ghost Rider fan for a long time, and I picked up the comic because the bike reminded me of my favorite uncle. He was a Harley rider who used to do parades and ride in formation and things like that. So I’ve always loved the character, and I was really excited to have an excuse to go back and read some of the issues that I’d missed!”
Track of Words

“First and foremost, I hope readers find it to be an enjoyable fantasy novel that feels true to both Norse myth and Marvel lore. Beyond that, there are a couple themes I hope people will pick up on, but I don’t want to telegraph them by flat-out announcing what they are.”

“One of the things I like best about this book is that you acknowledge that Johnny Blaze is an idiot”
Tomb of Ideas Podcast

“Ninety percent of the novel is Rocket Raccoon flying into things, Gamora threatening to decapitate people, and Ms Marvel jumping off the outside of spaceships. Promise. There are surprise villains, too.”
Animate Stooge

“I really wanted to write a book that would be accessible to new Marvel fans while still containing plenty of Easter eggs for die-hard X-fans to enjoy. So if you’ve only seen a Marvel movie once, you should be able to pick up this book and understand it. But if you’ve read all the comics, you’ll also have some inside information about why these characters don’t like each other and what happens next. So hopefully it’s an enjoyable experience regardless of your Marvel background. That’s the goal, anyway.”

– Carrie Harris

“The Patriot List, essentially, is a book about villains being their absolute worst selves whilst pretending to be good guys.”

– David Guymer

“This is an epic team-up between the goddess Lady Sif, sister of Heimdall, and the leader of the Valkyries, Brunnhilde. They’re old rivals but older friends, so Brunnhilde knows of Sif’s impetuosity and tendency towards recklessness, while Sif chafes under Brunnhilde’s steady leadership.”

– Anna Stephens

“Outlaw: Relentless is about going home as an adult – wherever you think of as home. It’s about rediscovering the things you loved, the things you told yourself you did, and the things that made you a worse person. And maybe a few of the things that made you a better one.”

-Tristan Palmgren

“The opportunity to write a giant-scale clash between these two groups was irresistible. Structuring the story was tough, but lots of fun. I really wanted to make sure the characters drove the conflicts at every stage; that’s absolutely key to Marvel storytelling.”

– Stuart Moore

“When Rogue came along, I was thrilled. She had all this lovely internal conflict, but she also had a sense of humor. ”
This Bliss Life, Interview with Alisa Kwitney, author of Rogue: Untouched

“Elsa is a fabulous character who should be more of a recognisable hero in the Marvel Universe, because she combines badassery and hilarity in a way few others do.”
Trans-Scribe, Interview with Cath Lauria, author of Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest

“The X-Men are superheroes whose virtues are their vices. That is to say, there is often something in their personalities or in the nature of their powers that is both an asset and vulnerability.”
Track of Words, Interview with Alisa Kwitney, author of Rogue: Untouched

“It was SO MUCH FUN figuring out who to bring into Elsa’s book. This was my first time working on a project in such a vast established universe, and while there were a few characters who were off-limits up front, I still had a fair number of people to work with when it came to the rest of the cast.”
Track of Words, Interview with Cath Lauria, author of Elsa Bloodstone: Bequest

“[Doctor Doom’s] been my favourite Marvel character for as long as I can remember – well over 40 years!”
UM Today, Interview with David Annandale, author of The Harrowing of Doom

“Anole is the sort of character you see mentioned a lot when people talk about minor heroes they’d like to see more of. It was clear early on that, as a charming, witty and fun kid, he’d be an enjoyable character to write about.”
ComicSXF, Interview with Robbie MacNiven, author of First Team

“Family is a core theme of so many of the stories that feature Marvel’s X-Men. In a word of tension and prejudice, acceptance is hard to come by, and the very abilities that might seem to make someone exceptional also make them at best outcasts, and at worst, targets.”
Track of Words, Article by Robbie MacNiven, author of First Team

“I wanted to focus on a character from the Asgardian part of the Marvel Universe who I always felt had a great deal of story potential but never really had too much focus placed on him.”

“Doctor Doom has been my favorite of all Marvel characters for well over 40 years. His Gothic Hero-Villain persona pulled me in long before I even knew what such a character type was.”
Track of Words, Interview with David Annandale, author of The Harrowing of Doom

Comic Book Herald, Interview with Carrie Harris, author of Liberty & Justice For All

“In comics, we see a lot of the likes of Storm and X-23 because they’re just so powerful, and in visual ways. But in prose, we can explore what it’s like to be the healer and the time manipulator, and give them a chance to shine.”
Comic Years, Interview with Carrie Harris, author of Liberty & Justice For All

“I hope readers will come away feeling they’ve read a rousing fantasy adventure true to the spirit of the Marvel Universe. Beyond that, I hope they’ll regard Heimdall as a cool character they’d like to see more of.”
Track of Words, Interview with Richard Lee Byers, author of The Head of Mimir

“I love Domino’s voice. From the start, I knew this story had to be told in the first person. She’s sharp, she’s funny, and she’s punchy. I loved spending time with her, and just letting her talk. The big draw of a prose novel about Domino is getting a chance to spend more time with that voice than comics could allow.”
Track of Words, Interview with Tristan Palmgren, author of Domino: Strays

 

“I started reading Gail Simone & David Baldeón’s 2018 Domino – and its follow-up, 2019’s Domino: Hotshots – and fell in love with Domino’s voice.”
Xavier Files, Interview with Tristan Palmgren, author of Domino: Strays
