What is BatmanNovels.com and why does the world need it?
BatmanNovels.com is here to for one reason. A lifelong Batman fan, a few years ago, I found myself enjoying the recent run of
Batman novels released (Dead White, Inferno, Batman Begins novelization), so I started tracking down as many of them as I could.
In attempting to do this, I noticed there wasn't a central place to easily find the novels out there, so I created this site.
What types of Batman novels can I find listed here?
I've recently expanded it to include not only all novels involving Batman and members of the Bat-family, but also novels of other DC
characters. This was done simply for two reasons: the first because a lot of the super hero novels I was reading maybe had Batman in there briefly, but not enough
to merit a listing based on the original criteria that Batman or a Bat-family member have some sort of precense in the book (the Justice League of America series is a good example of this);
the second reason was well, I have the site, I might as well expand it :)
So here are the categories of how I group the novels:
- Batman Novels - These are original Batman stories. There might be some supporting bat characters in here, but for the most part it's all Batman
- Novelizations - These are novelizations of Batman TV shows, movies, comics and games
- Batman/DC Universe Novels - These are original stories or novelizations that feature DC Universe characters including Batman and/or the Bat-family. To make the list, Batman or a member of the Bat-family has to have some sort of precense in the book
- Other DC Universe Novels - These original stories or novelizations might contain a small or token appearance by Batman or someone in the Bat-family or the they might not.
What about Junior Novels?
At this time, I'm not planning on listing any Junior Novels.
You seem to be missing an entry or two on your list, how come it's not there?
If it's a Batman novel, could be because I'm not aware of it or I just haven't gotten around to posting it. Please send me
the title and author and I'll check it out/
If it's some non-Batman related novel, say the Superman III novelization, you can send it to me if you want, but don't count on much.
Let me stress, I'm a Batman fan. I read other stuff besides super hero novels and outside of movies and video games, my interest in non-Batman related super hero stuff is pretty low.
So I can expect to see all the Superman novels listed soon?
At this time, I wouldn't hold my breath.
I tried to do something on your site and got an error. What do i do?
Please email me
the error and what you were doing and I'll take a look.
