Planeta to Publish Marvel Novels
Planeta Cómic, the Spanish comic, graphic novel and manga publishing imprint at Grupo Planeta, has announced its brand new collection of MARVEL novels, thanks to a deal with Aconyte Books. The first title will be released in June: Target Kree by Stuart Moore.
After this, there will be more books based on the most interesting superheroes of the Marvel Universe for the enjoyment of Spanish and Latin American readers. During 2022, the publishing plan will include La cabeza de Mimir (September), La espada de Surtur (October), Pícara intocable y Vengadores de las sombras (November) and Brujas desencadenadas (December).
Aconyte’s Publisher Marc Gascoigne says: “After our earlier deal announcing Spanish editions of our various tabletop game-derived novels, Aconyte is delighted to expand our publishing partnership to encompass our Marvel range. Planeta is the perfect partner to bring these wondrous stories to Spanish readers worldwide.”
For Editorial Planeta, “This agreement will represent increasing the range of products focused on Marvel, this time with completely original novels that explore the background of our dearest superheroes. We are sure that this new line will be enjoyed as much as comic books and films. We are delighted to enlarge our deal with Aconyte with these new novels.”
All novels will be published in paperback and ebook formats.
