Warner Bros. fan-favorite drama Supernatural returns for its highly anticipated thirteenth season on Thursday October 12 (8/7c on The CW). As one of the longest-running television shows on air, the hit series starring Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins has cultivated a massive and devoted fanbase since its debut in 2005.
In advance of the new season’s premiere, Insight Editions is publishing Supernatural: The Men of Letters Bestiary, an immersive in-world guide to the most deadly ghosts, monsters, and creatures ever encountered in the Supernatural universe. In the series, the Men of Letters is a secret society dedicated to accumulating knowledge about supernatural and arcane mysteries. Decades after the order is wiped out, Sam and Dean Winchester inherit its hidden bunker, where all the Men of Letters records and books are stored. Supernatural: The Men of Letters Bestiary is a collection of those records, with annotations and additions by Sam and Dean themselves.
From Abaddon, the Knight of Hell to banshees and wendigos, this fully illustrated tome allows fans to explore the creatures of Heaven, Hell, and Earth from the Winchesters’ perspective. Complete with commentary from Sam and Dean informed by their time as hunters, Supernatural: The Men of Letters Bestiary offers a unique and immersive look at the creatures and entities that lurk in the shadows of Supernatural.
In addition to Supernatural: The Men of Letters Bestiary, Insight Editions in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is also releasing Supernatural: John Winchester Hardcover Ruled Journal.
Based on the actual journal from Sam and Dean’s hunter father, John, in the show, this deluxe hardcover journal contains several pages of content, followed by blank ruled pages where fans can record their own adventures. Atmospheric and engrossing, it features a dynamic, in-world design and otherworldly imagery. It offers the perfect opportunity for fans to celebrate the show’s gritty style, complex mythos, and family-centric story.
With sturdy construction and a sewn binding, the journal lies flat when open, and the 192 lined, acid-free pages of high-quality heavy stock paper take both pen and pencil nicely to invite a flow of inspiration. Additional features include a ribbon placeholder, elastic closure, and 7.5 x 4.5–inch back pocket, perfect for holding photographs and mementos.
