Marvel have announced a new all-ages comic series Marvel’s Super Hero Adventures to arrive this Spring.

The publisher describes this as part of their “multi-platform content program focused on targeting Marvel’s youngest fans”, and the series will kick off in April.

Written by Jim McCann (New Avengers: The Reunion) with art by Dario Brizuela (Avengers: No More Bullying, Avengers Vs), the five-issue series features “all the classic action and adventures of Marvel’s greatest heroes in kid-friendly versions”, according to Marvel.

McCann previously worked on the Marvel Press children’s series 5-Minute Spider-Man Stories as well as junior novelizations for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.

The series will focus on “aspirational themes of friendship, helping others, and heroism” and will serve as a way for “preschool kids and young readers” to experience the Marvel Universe.

McCann explains:

Marvel Super Hero Adventures is a chance to introduce the great heroes of Marvel to a brand new generation in exciting stories with lessons, adventures, and action that readers of all ages have come to expect from the House of Ideas! Each issue features Spider-Man teaming up with characters both classic, such as Black Panther and Doctor Strange, and popular new faces like Ms. Marvel. Together they battle villains like Doc Ock, Taskmaster, Venom and more. This is the book you can pick up and share with anyone from your kids to your friends!

The series will start with “Spider-Man swinging into Wakanda” and debut in April 2018.
