Much like the recent Mulder/Scully announcement, Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and Catwoman will all be getting their own YA books.
To create the DC characters in prose, Random House (in conjunction with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros.) will be bringing in four New York Times bestselling authors.
Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows) will be taking on Wonder Woman, Marie Lu (The Young Elites) will tackle Batman, with Matt de la Peña (The Living) on Superman and Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass) penning Catwoman.
All the books — starting with Wonder Woman in August — are set to be published in 2017 and will “embrace themes of good vs. evil, coming-of-age romance, and superheroes from unexpected places who have the determination to achieve seemingly impossible dreams.”
Batgirl next please?
