I feel like I’m back in grade school… Adult coloring books have become all the rage. A guy in our office broke his leg – got a coloring book. Great Christmas gift for my 20-year-old in college? A Harry Potter coloring book. Of course I have the Outlander coloring book. And a box of 120 brand new crayons!
So exciting news crossed my virtual desk this afternoon – three new coloring books from our genre have been announced! Here’s what Marvel Entertainment had to say:
You’ve read the comics. You’ve experienced these iconic and groundbreaking stories. Now it’s time to experience the Marvel Universe like you never have before – as a coloring book! Marvel is pleased to announce its next wave of Adult Coloring Books featuring some of Marvel’s most iconic characters, stories and artwork to delight fans the world over! The Marvel Universe has action, power, excitement and adventure. Now all it needs is YOU!
First, the women of Marvel have won the world over with some of the most influential and mightiest heroes to hit the comic book industry in years. Now is your chance to accentuate the strength and power of these women with COLOR YOUR OWN WOMEN OF POWER.
