The SPIDER-MAN omnibus is out!

Today is the release date for the e-book edition of Marvel Classic Novels – Spider-Man: The Darkest Hours Omnibus, reprinting my 2008 novel Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder along with Jim Butcher’s The Darkest Hours and Keith R.A. DeCandido’s Down These Mean Streets.

Collecting three classic fan-favorite Spider-Man novels together for the first time in a brand-new omnibus edition.

THE DARKEST HOURS by Jim Butcher

When Black Cat foils Spider-Man’s attempts to stop the Rhino rampaging through Times Square, she informs him the Rhino is just a distraction. The real threat comes from a group of Ancients, members of the same race as the being called Morlun, seeking revenge for Spider-Man defeating them years before. Spidey must rely on Black Cat if there’s any hope of stopping them again, before they can steal his life force.

DOWN THESE MEAN STREETS by Keith R.A. DeCandido

A mysterious drug known as Triple X has been giving users super-powers as well as rendering them mentally and physically unstable. Only by teaming up with a police force that hates him can Spider-Man find the source behind this lethal drug and protect people from those using it. But one of Spider-Man’s most fearsome enemies may be behind it all as part of a greater scheme to bring down the city.

DROWNED IN THUNDER by Christopher L. Bennett

The ongoing conflict between Spider-Man and his longtime outspoken nemesis, crusading newspaper publisher J. Jonah Jameson, reaches a whole new level when JJJ exploits several mysterious attacks on Manhattan island in his propaganda war against the web-slinger.

As expected, the omnibus contains the three novels in the order listed on the blurb, which is the correct chronological story order, though Keith’s novel was published first. The three books are standalone tales, but they all take place around the same period in the comics’ run, and mine makes brief allusions to the other two.

The trade paperback edition of the omnibus is still a few weeks away; it will be released on June 1st. Here’s the ordering info:

Also, it turns out that the audiobook edition of my other Marvel novel, X-Men: Watchers on the Walls, published by Dreamscape Media and read by Frankie Corzo, has been available digitally since April 26, and will be released on CD June 11.

I’m glad to have both my Marvel novels back in release, one way or another. Of course, GraphicAudio’s full-cast audiobook of Drowned in Thunder is also available in a Dreamscape re-release; see my Marvel Fiction page for links.

Face front, true believers!
