Spider-Man from Insomniac Games Getting a Tie-In Prequel Novel and Artbook


Quote:
Insomniac’s Spider-Man will swing into action early in prequel novel

Titan Books will collaborate with Marvel and Insomniac Games to publish two tie-in books for Insomniac’s upcoming Spider-Man, the first of which will be Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover, a prequel to the events of the game.

“Leading directly into the beginning of the game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover features some of Spidey’s most famous friends and foes,” says Titan’s announcement, exclusively shared with Polygon, “including the Shocker, Echo, the Blood Spider, J. Jonah Jameson, Mary Jane Watson, and Wilson Fisk – the Kingpin.”

Written by author David Liss (The Ethical Assassin, Black Panther: The Man Without Fear), the book will reveal “Kingpin’s plan to gain an iron grip on New York City,” and establish character relationships and details that will be continued in the game.

Insomniac’s Spider-Man will also join Titan’s long line of game-based art books with Marvel’s Spider-Man: The Art of the Game, written by Paul Davies.

“Packed with never-before- seen images of Spider-Man, his costume and equipment, the Marvel version of his hometown New York, and the deadly villains he battles, fans will learn about every facet of the game, from the initial designs, blueprints, and the breathtaking final concepts,” says Titan’s announcement.

Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover will hit shelves on Aug. 21, 2018, just a few weeks before the release of the game itself on Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Spider-Man: The Art of the Game will follow on Sept. 11.

What is a “blockbuster” video game?

And how do they know it’s a “blockbuster” when it isn’t even out yet?

I have read a tie in novel or two. But why does this exist? It is not like 50 plus years of comics, 3 movie franchises and a bunch of cartoons don't already exist.

It would help set up the story of this particular game, which doesn't appear to be explicitly tied in with any of the current stories, comics, or movies.

It's sorta like how there were tie-in comics for the Arkham games, which was its own setting. Yeah, this is Spider-Man...but this doesn't necessarily have the same status quo as the comics.
