Bookgasm has a great run down of all the trashy books -- novels, comics and nonfiction -- that you can get to accompany your trashy summer movie watching!
There's stuff coming out for Indiana Jones, X-Files, The Mummy, Iron Man, Speed Racer, The Hulk, Wanted, Hellboy and Batman!
I'm probably most tempted by the X-Files stuff, so here's a sample:
THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE
- THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE by Max Allan Collins — The ever-reliable crime writer provides the requisite novelization.
- THE COMPLETE X-FILES: BEHIND THE SERIES, THE MYTHS, AND THE MOVIES by Matt Hurwitz — Once you’ve devoured the series’ DVD set, you’ll want to check out this franchise-encompassing in-depth archive, with charts, posters, cards, booklets and more interactive bits to prove the truth is out there.
- THE X-FILES BOOK OF THE UNEXPLAINED: VOLUMES 1 AND 2 by Jane Goldman — The author’s pair of late-’90s tomes looking into the real-life science and mysteries behind the show gets a two-in-one reissue.
