Superheroes are breaking out of comics and landing in prose short stories and novels. Below is a reading list of superhero and super-villain books — novels and anthologies — that I assembled for myself.
I’ve already read, and enjoyed, the first three books. I’m about to start Ex Heroes.
How many have you read?
In and Out of Capes
