Marvel To Adapt Popular Graphic Novels Like ‘Civil War’ Into Prose Books
  |  

Starting June 2012 Marvel Comics will be adapting some of its most “popular” stories into prose novels. That’s right, no pretty pictures. The first book adapted by author Stuart Moore (Wolverine) will be based on the epic story Civil War.

In case you don’t remember that story or you’re trying to block it from your memory, Marvel graciously provided a brief synopsis:

“In the wake of a tragedy, Capitol Hill proposes the Superhuman Registration Act, requiring all costumed heroes to unmask themselves before the government. Divided, the nation’s greatest champions must each decide how to react”¦”

“Releasing our most acclaimed graphic novels as prose fiction not only allows us to reach a different audience with these stories, but also gives us a chance to bring those readers back to the comics that started it all,” said David Gabriel, Senior Vice President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment. “CIVIL WAR is easily our best-selling graphic novel of the past decade and certainly one of the most influential in recent memory, so it was the perfect launch title for this new line. Not only will you get all the action that Mark Millar and Steve McNiven delivered in comic form but no fan will want to miss the new wrinkles we’ve added in this novel.”

Half of the fun of reading comic books is the artwork, but it could be entertaining to hear some of these bang zoom stories presented in audio book form. What say you?
