A look at some exciting books featuring your favorite DC characters

In addition to the monthly comics and graphic novels the DCU publishes on a regular basis, there's a ton of material out there featuring varied and entertaining interpretations of our characters. We thought it'd be neat to take a moment and spotlight a few.
First up we have SUPERMAN: THE STORY OF THE MAN OF STEEL, by New York Times-bestselling writer/artist Ralph Cosentino. Ralph, as some of you may know, wrote and drew BATMAN: THE STORY OF THE DARK KNIGHT, which hit last year. His simple yet dynamic style brings a fun, playful energy to the characters without losing their iconic nature. His books are both fun for adults and kids. Don't believe me? Well, our friends at Viking were kind enough to allow us to debut a few pages from THE STORY OF THE MAN OF STEEL, hitting next month. Check them out below:
But that's not all. If you've been enjoying TINY TITANS every month -- and who hasn't? Awww, yeah!! -- then you should definitely make a point of checking out the two TINY TITANS illustrated storybooks, featuring the work of TINY TITANS co-writer and artist Art Baltazar and published by Grosset & Dunlap. Let's check in with Art Baltazar to see what he has to say:
"Tiny Titans comics are awesomely fun! Panel after panel of cartoony laughter…BUT…did you ever wonder what it would be like to read the Tiny Titans storybook style? Aw Yeah Traditional! Now is your chance! Tiny Titans GO CAMPING and go to the SCIENCE FAIR in two awesome Chapter Reader Books! AW YEAH! Now parents get to read Tiny Titans stories to their kids before bedtime and let their imaginations run wild!
"Aw Yeah Man! Working on these books was awesome! I think kids are really going to dig them. They could be read with parents or kids can read them on their own. I think the stories will spark ideas and imagination in those Tiny Titans fans! Aw Yeah New Medium! I can’t wait to hear what the kids think!"
Pretty cool, right?
