    This is a discussion for Code Lyoko fans, so if any are out there, do discuss. :>

    So, I've heard today Code Lyoko is getting some novels. As the topic title says. What's this gonna be about? I lost the link to the site that provided info, but here's what I remember;

    - The writing is done by a famous writer, it seems. Not a name I recognize, so it might as well be considered non-canon.
    - Is it a retelling or continuation? Judging by the profiles and image provided, it's likely a retelling. I hardly see room for continuation in the shows ending.
    - While it listed everyone we know so far, it adds in a new group called "The Green Phoenix", who are some sort of terrorist group who want the supercomputer for their own needs.
    - There are four prepared releases so far.
    - The release dates are unusual; For '09, one in March, then one in September. Then the releases for '10 are basically the same. Perhaps these are just estimates.

    Oh, and here's an image.

    Say what you will, but I kinda like it. It's better than a recycled piece of official artwork, at least.

    So, what do you CL fans think? Good news for the series, or a bad idea waiting to happen? As a long-time fan, I've got the impression it might not work out, but if this writer is famous (indirectly meaning they are GOOD), I'd like to see where it goes.

    There's actually a lot of fans, hundreds. It's just that they're usually... well, at Code Lyoko forums. =P

    The artwork sample is not bad. It's better than the freakishly huge foreheads that the characters have in the TV series.
