In the UK in 2008 they have also published the movie novelisations for Iron Man*, The Dark Knight* and X-Files: I Want to Believe*.

Titan also publishes high quality 'coffee table' books on animation, popular culture, collectibles and comic and fantasy art. Their 2008 lead title is Watching the Watchmen, Dave Gibbon’s visual account of the genesis of the acclaimed bestselling graphic novel, Watchmen, featuring hundreds of rare and unseen illustrations from his personal archive.

Also published in 2008 is The Cream of Tank Girl, a lavish art book that celebrates the 20th anniversary of Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett’s anarchic creation, born kicking and screaming in the early days of punk and still going strong.
