404 Editions and Aconyte Books expand their partnership with Marvel novels in French

Launched in September 2020, Aconyte is the fiction publishing house of global games company, Asmodee. Its ranges of novels feature untold stories and new adventures set in the universes of Asmodee’s most popular board games and the fabulous worlds of partners such as Marvel.

Following the recent exclusive deal to publish Aconyte’s range of game-inspired novels in France, the collaboration between Asmodee and 404 Editions continues, this time bringing their Marvel prose novels to French readers. This exciting list will debut before the end of the year with Domino: Strays, featuring the popular X-Men heroine, with more titles published across 2022 and beyond.

Alexandra Bentz, Director of 404 Editions, is delighted: “It is with great pride that we are strengthening our partnership with Asmodee, by enriching our fictional catalog with Marvel novels. We share with Aconyte a passion for creating never-before-seen adventures in the powerful Marvel Universes, delivering new storylines and character insights to fans’ imaginations. It is a pleasure to work with this very creative team.”
Marc Gascoigne, Publisher at Aconyte, adds: “We are delighted to extend our ongoing partnership with 404 Editions. Through our collection of Marvel novels, we will imagine and offer a whole range of adventure novels, much richer and more creative than adaptations, to create new reading universes. Between the inimitable Marvel characters, the talented authors of Aconyte and the impressive editorial team of 404 Editions, we will entertain readers for many years to come.”
