Marvel Enterprises has signed major licensing agreements with four publishing houses to produce an array of books based on such Marvel superheroes as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine, Marvel Ultimates and The Avengers, the company said today.

DK Publishing will develop a line of children’s and all-age non-fiction titles as part of its Ultimate Guides series, with initial titles spotlighting Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, X-Men and The Avengers.

HarperCollins will create movie tie-in books for Fantastic Four, X-Men 3 and Spider-Man 3. Products will include junior novelizations, picture story books, chapter books, manga story books, and coloring and activity books.

Pocket Books will launch a series of adult paperback novels spotlighting new adventures of Marvel characters, and Meredith Books will develop and publish a portfolio of children’s book products, including sound storybooks, coloring books, and picture story books.

Marvel Comics says its artists will work closely with each publishing house on the projects.
