Keith R.A. DeCandido presents us with a novelization based on the motion picture screenplay by Joss Whedon. The film and the book make for a fitting conclusion to the short-lived television series. And don’t forget the comics.

Fantastic 4


Peter David wrote this novelization of the film based on the screenplay by Mark Frost, Simon Kinberg, and Michael France, which is, in turn, based on the Marvel comic book. Reed Richards is a weenie. Ben Grimm clobbers stuff. Johnny Storm needs a smack upside the head. Sue Storm is played by Jessica Alba in the movie, which is more than enough reason to watch it. The book is ok. The comics are better.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith


The comic book adaptation of the movie Revenge of the Sith was adapted by Miles Lane and drawn by Doug Wheatley, with cover art by Tsuneo Sanda, and additional artwork by Dave Dorman. I read the comic before seeing the movie. It couldn’t hurt to read the novelization either. Now what?

Alien vs. Predator


Marc Cerasini authored this novelization of the film, screenplay by Paul W. S. Anderson and Shane Salerno. There are modest differences and similar inconsistentcies in the novel when compared to the movie. Lex and Scar seem to have a tighter bond in the novel and both use Alien body parts to arm and armor themselves. The movie was fun. The book is ok. Coming soon: the comic.
