While Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales from Insomniac Games won't release until November 12th on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, fans will actually be able to enter Miles' world a little earlier than that thanks to the newly announced prequel novel, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales - Wings of Fury, from Titan Books. The title from author Brittney Morris (SLAY) is set to release on November 10th. Titan Books also announced an art book for the upcoming video game -- Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales - The Art of the Game -- will release early next year.
Here's the official description of the upcoming prequel novel, which clocks in at 288 pages and $16:
"With an exclusive adventure leading directly into the game itself, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Wings of Fury features Miles Morales coming to terms with what it means to be Spider-Man. A mix-up with the law leaves Miles questioning everything and when Vulture and his accomplice Starling unleash experimental tech on Marvel’s New York, Miles must decide what kind of hero he wants to be."
