The Essential Supernatural to creep out bookshelves soon

The Essential Supernatural is the new Ultimate Visual Guide to the long running Warner Bros TV show, and it'll be on shelves just in time for the show's eighth season.

It's hard to believe that Supernatural has been around that long personally; I still think of it as a 'new' show, but it's forged a deep backstory and has featured more monsters than you can shake a stake at. And with all that history to keep track of, you're gonna need a visual guide to handle it all.

The Essential Supernatural: On the Road with Sam and Dean Winchester from Insight Editions, under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, gives unparalleled access to Warner Bros. Television's enthralling hit television series. This stunning 192-page visual companion prepares fans for this beloved show's eighth thrilling season, which debuts October 3 on a new night, airing Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.

Haunted by the death of their parents in a mysterious supernatural conspiracy,brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles)hunt down demons, monsters, and otherworldly creatures lurking in darkness. This stunningly comprehensive coffee-table book dissects all seven seasons of the thrilling show and looks ahead to season eight - with deep insights from extensive cast and crew interviews, beginning with a revealing foreword written by the show's creator, Eric Kripke. The book is visually breathtaking, with candid behind-the-scenes photos, revelatory production art, and collectible pullout elements, such as postcards, stickers, photos, and a map that details the cross-country adventures of Sam and Dean.

"From demons to angels (and even the Apocalypse), Sam and Dean Winchester have faced it all," relates Sonia Borris, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Operations, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. "After seven seasons, the world of Supernatural is so rich in its mythology, creatures and characterization that a companion guide like this is indispensable. Going into season eight, this is a must-have for fans old and new alike."

Returning for its eighth season this fall on The CW, Supernatural stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean Winchester. Created by Eric Kripke and executive produced by Robert Singer, Jeremy Carver, Phil Sgriccia, McG and Adam Glass, the series is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television and distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.

"With unparalleled scope, The Essential Supernatural offers fans amazing insights, keepsakes, and insider-knowledge from the world of their favorite show," said Maryellen Zarakas, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing and TV & Studio Licensing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "This thoughtfully curated companion book will engage Supernatural's many fans and build excitement for the upcoming eighth season."

I can't say I'm all that familiar with Supernatural; but I can absolutely tell you that if you are, then a Visual Guide might make a very nice little addition to your own personal library of the arcane. I have a bunch of VG's from all kinds of entertainment properties (from comic books to video games) on my shelves and I can't get enough of them.

If you love the show, you'll probably enjoy the book. But don't take my second-hand word for it, find out for yourself when all 192 pages of The Essential Supernatural: On The Road With Sam And Dean Winchester arrives on store shelves next month for $50.00 USD.
