Join Marvel Creators for an exciting conversation about all things Marvel, representation in superhero stories, and the newest Spider-Man graphic, Miles Morales: Shock Waves. YA authors Jason Reynolds and Nic Stone will also welcome Shock Waves author Justin A. Reynolds to the Marvel author club and talk about what it’s like writing for a massive franchise with established characters and how they made them their own.

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 what does it have to do with Spider-Man? In this original graphic novel starring one of Marvel's most popular characters, bestselling author Justin A. Reynolds (Opposite of Always, Early Departures) and Eisner award-nominated artist Pablo Leon (Refugees) create a riveting story that will connect with new readers and well-versed superhero fans alike.
