Prose plans: Publishers Weekly (subscription required) chimes in on news of Marvel's new prose imprint with word that Elektra and Fantastic Four are among the 12 titles planned for next year. The article also contains this tidbit about the health of Marvel's publishing division:

"Sales in the division rose 28.9%, to $19.6 million, in the first quarter ended March 31. The increase was due to gains in both the direct comics and mass market channels, an increase in the number of titles published plus higher advertising income."
