“Reading a book together!” By Sleepychu

Hey SU fans! Let’s read some books!

Popping up on Amazon recently are a few new Steven Universe books now available for pre-order. Check out after the break for details.

The first book were going to talk about is “Steven Universe’s Guide to the Crystal Gems.” / “Steven Universe: Crystal Gems Guide For Earthlings” – The essential guide to Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, Steven, and more, narrated by the all-knowing Pearl! Written by Rebecca Sugar.

Amazon’s Description: The Crystal Gems—Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl—are three of the toughest heroes on earth. They are also mentors to Steven Universe, a gem/human hybrid boy whose mother was a great Gem leader. This guide, told from Steven’s point-of-view and written by the show’s very own creator, Rebecca Sugar, is packed with facts about the Crystal Gems’ powers, abilities, and origins, It also includes original art and a special introduction from Rebecca Sugar. This book is a must-have for any Steven Universe fan!

My early thoughts: This book is one I’m personally excited for. I expect it to be mostly like a kids show guide- or like a book of screen shots and 90% information we know from the show. Even so, I’m loving the idea that it contains original art and words from the show’s creator. The gems are my personal favorite part of the show, so I’m loving the idea of a ‘semi-art’/picture book of them. Even more so the idea of getting the info in a fun perspective of Steven and Pearl. Agreeing with Amazon, this one will be a must have.

Release Date: October 6, 2015  – Price: $7.99

Next we have “Steven Universe: Quest For Gem Magic” Written by Max Brallier.

Amazon’s Description: Steven’s mother, Rose Quartz, was a member of the powerful Crystal Gems. She passed along some of her magic to her son when he was born, but because his father is an ordinary human, Steven has trouble accessing his magical abilities. Help Steven discover his powers—and learn about some of your own hidden strengths—in this colorful journal and activity book!

My early thoughts: Max Brallier has written a lot of books for Cartoon Network in the past for properties like Adventure Time and Regular Show, as well as other children’s books and novelty books for adults. He’s a fun author and handles different properties with a sense that he’s seen the shows. But I’m always wary about how well books like these will fit into the show canon or not. Even so, his books for other CN shows have been a lot of fun anyway and this one maybe as well.

Release Date: October 6, 2015 – Price: $7.99

Lastly we have “Steven Univserse: Vol.1” Written by Jeremy Sorese and illustrated by Coleman Engle.

Amazon Description: BELIEVE IN STEVEN!
Steven Universe is just your normal Beach City citizen…who is anything by normal! Join Steven as he learns not only how to save the day with the help of Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl…but as he learns what it means it be a great friend and an even better neighbor! There will be crazy adventures any time of day when you live in Beach City, between bike races and late night karaoke, this is just the beginning for Steven! Written by the international indie all-star Jeremy Sorese (A REMINDER, ADVENTURE TIME™) and illustrated by the lovable and insanely talented Coleman Engle (REGULAR SHOW™), STEVEN UNIVERSE™ is an exciting adventure that is only just beginning!

My early thoughts: This will be a compilation book of the Steven Universe Comic book series from KaBoom! If you haven’t read these cute comics yet, then here’s your chance to read them without having to find as many of the individual volumes.

Release Date: June 9, 2015 – Price: 14.99

You can Pre-Order HERE.
That’s all for today! Hope you folks keep collecting and keep showing your love for such an awesome series.

    Other than communicating with them through social websites, getting a book written by the creator sounds like the next best thing to attending a convention panel. Better than social websites, you get to directly fund the show.
