Aconyte Books, the novels imprint of global games publisher Asmodee, have announced Cross Cult, based in Germany, will publish translated editions of Aconyte's range of adventure novels set in the Marvel Universe.

New stories of characters from the Marvel comics line will be published starting in April, with a new title appearing every two months. 

"With the heroes of Marvel, a whole universe of adventure awaits the readers and us," says Markys Rohde, program director, Marvel novels, Cross Cult.

"Cross Cult is very pleased that, in addition to countless TV and cinema franchises, novels about the Marvel universe, which has been popular for decades, are now adding to the program," says Andreas Mergenthaler, publisher, Cross Cult. "The stories will cover a wide range: if one story is an action-adventure, the next is almost epic fantasy. Nevertheless, the heroes are not lost from sight and are given even more depth. The novels are also ideal for newer fans and readers interested in young and diverse characters."

In addition, the publishers are already planning a line of German translations of Aconyte's range of novels set in Asmodee's game worlds, as announced at the end of 2020.

"Cross Cult is the ideal partner for our rather splendid Marvel novels," says Marc Gascoigne, publisher, Aconyte. "We can't wait to hear what German readers think of our new and untold stories from this rich and endlessly fascinating universe."
