Skyquake mentioning the He-Man Art Book in another thread, Dalek having just published a book about TF comics and Ryan F having plans for one got me thinking about a round-up of other tie-in publications. There are getting to be more of them as folk get older, publishing involves fewer barriers, etc etc. But no need to limit it to unofficial stuff.

I'm thinking less of well-served fandoms such as Doctor Who where there are dozens if not hundreds of unofficial books of articles, but again chime in to talk about anything you've found and liked, particularly if people are unlikely to stumble on it otherwise. Documentaries would count too. Long-hoped-for reprints? Why not, if it's about collecting and preserving the history of brand-type media.

General TV and film stuff is probably where I'd think a different thread was justified.

Entries marked with an asterisk are to my knowledge hard to find.
