Superheroes Reading List

This list doesn't try to include all books written about superheroes, it's trying to bring to attention several books normally overlooked that are about superheroes. Namely, books shelved in places other than science fiction - at least in my store. To pad it out (as there aren't that many) I have added a few more popular titles. And don't forget - if you're looking for superheroes and you don't want to read the comics/graphic novels, there are quite a few superhero novelizations (both for movies and for the comics, of which some are listed here).

Books are listed in no particular order.
