Super Human Resources
In 2012, marketing entrepreneur Javier Carlos started FanPress LLC to purchase the rights to all the lesser Fantasia Illustrated Novels titles. All out of print for at least a decade, the did not command much of a price. However, FanPress’ re-release coincided with the opening of the summer blockbuster depicting Amber’s early adventures.
The movie was a world-wide success and took FanPress right along with it. With the profits from those reprinted titles, FanPress was able to negotiate a deal with Amber to produce a new book series about her which were equally as successful.
FanPress expanded their line of Fan Books, as they have come to be known, to include most of the known superhumans in the western hemisphere and has, since that first run, had at least one book in the New York Times Top Ten Best Seller list every year.
