Here’s a brief synopsis of the upcoming graphic novel:

In “Miles Morales: Shock Waves,” Miles Morales is a normal kid who happens to juggle school at Brooklyn Visions Academy while swinging through the streets of Brooklyn as Spider-Man. After a disastrous earthquake strikes his mother’s birthplace of Puerto Rico, Miles springs into action to help set up a fundraiser for the devastated island. But when a new student’s father goes missing, Miles begins to make connections between the disappearance and a giant corporation sponsoring Miles’ fundraiser. Who is behind the disappearance, and how does that relate to Spider-Man?

“Ever since he entered the Marvel Universe a few years ago, Miles has struck a deep and personal chord with fans around the world,” said Lauren Bisom, editor of Marvel’s juvenile publishing, in a statement. “As Spider-Man, he embodies that classic coming-of-age story. But as Miles, he represents so much more—and his life experiences, his culture, and his ability to embrace his inner strength make him one of the most important and inspirational heroes in the Marvel Universe.”

It’s not the first time Marvel and Scholastic partnered up for novels. The partnership published “Shuri: A Black Panther Novel” by New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone. Another story called “Avengers Assembly: Orientation,” by Preeti Chhibber, will be released in August.
