They’ve been adapted into animated films and television episodes, but now three iconic Batman stories are getting the novelization treatment this year courtesy of Titan Books. Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Batman: The Killing Joke, Batman: The Court of Owls, and Harley Quinn: Mad Love will all be released as novels this fall and winter.
Batman: The Killing Joke will be adapted from the Alan Moore graphic novel by authors Christa Faust and Gary Phillips. It will be released on September 25. Batman: The Court of Owls will be adapted from Scott Snyder’s comic book storyline by Greg Cox and will be released on November 1. Harley Quinn: Mad Love will be adapted from the Paul Dini one-shot comic by Pad Cardigan and see release on February 12, 2019.
While you can’t judge a book by its cover, the covers for this trio of books are pretty cool each one featuring a character and a tear-away that reveals another. It really seems like the books are part of a cohesive series and will hopefully lead to more adaptations.
