These DC Characters Are Getting Their Own YA Novels

Batman Wonderwoman Superman YA Novels

Sure Lois Lane may already have her own young adult series, and Black Widow already has one in the bag, but what about the DC superheroes and villains?

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?

  1. Obviously most excited about SJMaas Catwoman!!! I’m also interested in Matt de la Pena’s Superman since I enjoyed his story in My True Love Gave to Me!

    • I’ll probably be reading all of them with the exception of Superman, because Superman. If this catches on, I hope they do a bunch of villain stories too!

  2. I still haven’t read the Lois Lane and Black widow books, are they any good? I’m quite excited about all these upcoming novels, because except for Matt de la Pena (I haven’t read any books by him yet), these authors are some of my favourites! DC chose wisely, it is totally gonna work! And yes, I would be on board for Batgirl! *high fives*
