DC Adapting Classic Comics To Book Form So People Won't Feel Stigma Of Reading Comics

It's about time.

Since the dawn of time, comics have carried a stigma that they're for children or they're immature funny books. Unfortunately, there's some stories that are the pinnacle of the medium: MausA Contract With God, and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Even though these are highly respected stories in certain circles, you don't want to be seen in public with these comics.

Fortunately for the world at large, DC Comics has begun novelization adaptations of its iconic comics including Court of OwlsMad Love, and The Killing Joke, so you can read about Barbara Gordon's implied sexual assault by The Joker in explicit detail in public without feeling the humiliation of having to see Brian Bolland's amazing artwork in all its recolored glory.

Batman: The Killing Joke is set to release Sep. 25 in hardcover. Batman: The Court of Owls is set to release Nov. 13. Harley Quinn: Mad Love is set to release Feb. 12, 2019.
