Ender at Marvel

Ender's Game is the first of a series of books by Orson Scott Card. It was the winner of the Hugo Award for best novel in 1986 and the Nebula Award for best novel in 1985. The following year, the sequel, Speaker for the Dead, also won both awards. The Ender series now consists of five books with a sixth planned.

The companion books, the Shadow series, tell the same stories but from another perspective, Ender's shadow. The Shadow series now consists of four books with a fifth planned.

Finally, some thirty years after the first Ender short story was published, the saga has made it to the world of comics with the publication of Ender's Game: Battle School (part 1 of 6) by Marvel Comics.

This will be followed by Ender's Shadow in December so there is more good reading to look forward to. Now I just need a few days off to tackle that backlog ...
