Batman and Superman – two of the most popular comic book figures in North America – are heading to a library near you.
Last week we announced an exciting new licensing agreement with DC Entertainment. Starting in the fall, we will publish reinforced library hard covers and paper-over-board editions of the extensive DC Comics comic book list. We’ll be adding backmatter to the titles (think author/illustrator bios, glossary, etc), making them even more perfect additions to the library or classroom.
The first season will include 24 titles for readers at all levels from these iconic series:
- Tiny Titans - Join the world’s greatest super heroes as little kids! Tiny Titans is illustrated by the Eisner award-winning Art Baltazar, the same illustrator as our best-selling DC Super-Pets chapter books.
- DC Superfriends - Super Friends is a great series for younger readers to meet the heroes of the DC Universe—Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman are all here to save the day!
- Batman: Brave and the Bold - Based on the popular animated series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold follows Batman as he chases down the most powerful villains in the DC Universe.
- Superman Adventures - Based on the popular animated series, Superman Adventures is a great series to introduce The Man of Steel to younger readers.
- Batman Adventures - Also based on the hit animated series, Batman Adventures has more stories from the world’s favorite crime fighter!
- Young Justice - Offer more complex stories to older readers with Young Justice. Sophisticated action and art follow four young superheroes learning how to work as a team.
Also coming next fall - more original Batman and Superman stories with two new chapter book series Dark Knight and Man of Steel. More on those original series in a future post!
