Abrams is working with Marvel to produce an anthology of new middle-grade stories about Marvel characters, created by popular children’s creators including Jerry Craft, Gale Galligan, Nathan Hale, and Lincoln Peirce. Marvel Super Stories will be published on October 17, 2023, as a 160-page hardcover with a 5 ½” x 8” trim size, similar to the Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales series but slightly thicker. The book is rated for ages 8-12. MSRP will be $16.99.

The anthology is edited by John Jennings, who is also the director of Abrams’ Megascope imprint (see “Abrams ComicArts Adds New Graphic Novel Imprint”), and will be in full color with six-page stories about each character. Here’s the lineup:

  • Black Panther: Jerry Craft (New Kid)
  • Wiccan: Mike Curato (Flamer)
  • Miles Morales Spider-Man: C. G. Esperanza (Soul Food Sunday)
  • Iron Man: John Gallagher (Max Meow)
  • Shang-Chi: Gale Galligan (The Baby-Sitters Club)
  • The Hulk: Chris Giarrusso (G-Man)
  • Spider-Man: Nathan Hale (Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales)
  • Captain America: Michael Lee Harris (Choco Leche)
  • Hawkeye: Ben Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl)
  • Ms. Marvel: Priya Huq (Piece by Piece: The Story of Nisrin’s Hijab)
  • Daredevil: John Jennings (Kindred: The Graphic Novel Adaptation)
  • Thor and Loki: George O’Connor (The Olympians)
  • Namor: Lincoln Peirce (Big Nate)
  • Squirrel Girl: Maria Scrivan (Nat Enough)
  • Ghost Spider: Jessi Zabarsky (Witchlight)

Although Abrams and Marvel launched a MarvelArts imprint last year for original Marvel comics to be published by Abrams (see “Abrams Comicarts Launching Marvel Graphic Novel Line”), the anthology is being released under a different imprint, Amulet, which is also home to Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales.
