You can also find information on all of the U.S. and U.K. exclusive novels and miscellaneous companion books here:

The two U.K. exclusive novels, The Beginning and The Ghost and the Gumshoe are actually novelizations of the Pilot Episode and "A Portrait for Troian" respectively, while Carny Knowledge in the U.K. is the same as Quantum Leap: The Novel in the U.S.

There was also a series of comic books that came out in the early 90s (which is actually where the pictures of those stockings on the main page come from ):

They only published 13 issues in total, although more had been planned. The reason why they never saw print was because Innovation went bankrupt; which is a real shame because the next four issues would have been really interesting stories: "Second Childhood" would have been a 3-issue mini-series in which Sam leaped into the same boy at three different points in his life: first as a baby in Part 1, then as an 8-year-old in Part 2, and finally as a teenager in Part 3 (which would have involved the Evil Leapers and a Sam Beckett cult). And after that was supposed to be the Quantum Leap Annual where Sam would have somehow leaped into Ziggy. I don't even know HOW they would have explained that one... all I know for certain was that the leap-in for that story had Sam leaping in to an ER patient just as the doctors defibrillated him and he flatlined! Weird stuff...

Acclaim Comics had also planned on publishing a new series of comics, but they too discontinued their comic division before they could be published. You'll find all of the information on that link as well.
