SS #023 - Super-Hero Prose

Shortbox Showcase #023

Super-Hero Novels & Short Stories

Professor Alan and Emily have talked more than once about comic books that don't feature superheroes. This time they talk about non-comic books that do feature superheroes. It's book report time, as the topic for this conversation is "super-hero prose." We talk about novelizations and adaptations, novels featuring DC & Marvel characters, novels featuring original characters, short stories, and even some fan-fiction.
