The superhero lot outta DC comics have already made it into your comic book collection, your DVD stash and your fave TV shows, so it makes total sense that they're now heading for the bookshelf too - and yup, they're coming soon to the world of YA novels.

It's been revealed that four of the biggest names in superhero universe, Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and Catwoman, are each getting their own book starting in 2017 with a bit of help from some of your favourite well-known authors.

Mashreads have revealed that DC Entertainment and Warner Bros have partnered up with Random House books for Young Readers, to take the stories of four of their most iconic characters into the pages of your bookshelf for the first time ever.

But you can't have good stories without good authors, so that's why Leigh Bardugo (The Grisha Trilogy) is taking on Wonder Woman, and Sarah J. Maas (The Thrones of Glass series) is bringing Catwoman to life.

Meanwhile over on the manly side of things, Marie Lu (The Young Elites) will be penning Batman's book, while Matt de la Pena (Mexican Whiteboy and The Living) is tackling Superman.

According to Random House, the books "will embrace themes of good vs. evil, coming-of-age romance, and superheroes from unexpected places who have the determination to achieve seemingly impossible dreams."

Wonder Woman is the first one coming your way, expected in August 2017 around the same time as the Hollywood movie hits screens.
