    That sems nice. Correct me if I'm worng, but a novel would be like a book, right? If it is the case, it'll b even more interesting to get the chance to dive deep inside these characters. I wonder if it'll be cannon. For both of these characters it seems likely, but I'm not sure about Domino's and Rogue's.

    Novel is book format with the slighty chance of pictures but it's main all words.

    I wonder what version of Domino are they using the comic or movie version?

    I remember those books. In fact, I was collecting some of those Marvel prose novels that were being published back in the 1990s. I was more of a Spider-Man person (still am), but I had X-Men: Empire's End and Part 2 of the X-Men/Spider-Man team-up trilogy Time's Arrow.

    Fully admitting to and owning my literary/authorial snobbery, I've always wondered...are those YA Superhero prose things any good?

    I read the Mutant empire trilogy and enjoyed it. It was a fairly standard but decently written X-men adventure. I know the reason people tend to dislike these prose novels is because they feel the lack of art detracts from the story and makes it a downgrade from the typical comic format.

    The lack of art should never be a detraction. If a novel is written well the words alone are enough to paint vivid pictures.

    As with the prose I read, I would expect the author to be able to paint the pictures for me...if they fall short and all we get are schlocky dialogue and standard exposition interspersed with generic action, well...I'll stick to my Jacqueline Carey, G.G. Kay and Mark Lawrence.

    Dunno if itís because Iíve read to many naff novelisations, but the idea of an X-Men novel really doesnít appeal. They donít tend to buy in top flight talent to do this sort of thing, and often the tight deadlines reel off the page in stodgy prose and barely existent editing.

    Which one's have you read? Most of the one's I've looked into have been good experiences.

    The Chaos Engine Trilogy, Mutant Empire, Watchers on the Walls, Smoke and Mirrors, and the Return were decent to good. Though with Smoke and Mirrors did have me skipping a lot because spoilers:
    while the psychological effects of switching bodies was interesting, the lack of action
    end of spoilers was disappointing. I ended up enjoying Lui's comic stuff a lot more than her novel.
