Marvel and Scholastic announced a multi-year collaboration that aims to to introduce original and relatable new stories featuring Marvel Super Heroes to young readers around the world.

Scholastic will publish two new Marvel prose middle grade novels, kicking off with Shuri: A Black Panther Novel, written by New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone, followed by an original middle grade series, Avengers Assembly, by Preeti Chhibber.

“The Marvel Universe is vast, inclusive and iconic with a great range of multi-faceted characters, and Scholastic and Marvel share a commitment to bringing diverse characters to life. Shuri, Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Squirrel Girl, etc. are all “ordinary” characters with extraordinary powers – and there are a lot of stories to be told!” 

— Debra Dorfman, Vice President and Publisher, Global Licensing, Brands and Media, Scholastic

The fruits of the collaboration will begin in 2020 with the release of the first two books.
