David Bentley, blogger for the Coventry Telegraph in the U.K., writes about my book, “Mutant Cinema: The X-Men Trilogy from Comics to Screen” — in particular some of the details about where “X-Men 3” might have gone had Bryan Singer not left the franchise to tackle “Superman Returns.” Check out his award-winning blog for the parts he finds the most interesting …

The version of the article that showed up in my feedreeder notes that Bentley apparently had some problems finding the book, so here’s the most up to date info:

  • The book is available right now through Amazon.com and BN.com.
  • The publisher, Sequart, also has copies available.
  • The book will be coming to comic shops in the spring. I believe the latest news was that the book will appear for ordering in the January edition of Previews and will come out along with a bunch of other X-themed merchandise tying in to the release of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Tell your local comic shop to watch for it and to order lots of copies.

And for those who don’t know, the cover for the book is by Kevin Colden, who since drawing this has gone on to significant acclaim for his graphic novel “Fishtown.”

I’ll be writing more about the book as the PR effort for the Previews debut nears, so watch here for some excerpts and maybe even a few giveaways …
