The synopsis for Spider-Man issue #240 reads: “THE END OF AN ERA FOR MILES MORALES! Marvel Comics proudly presents the final issue of Bendis’ epic (bio-electric) run! Over seven years and across two universes, Miles Morales has been an Ultimate, a Web-Warrior, an Avenger and a Champion. A New Yorker, a student, a son and a friend. And whenever the city needed him (and one time when all of reality needed him), he was always SPIDER-MAN. Don’t miss the chance to see comics superstar Brian Michael Bendis bid farewell to one of his most beloved creations, and to glimpse what the future may hold for Miles Morales.”

Issue #240 of Spider-Man is available from May 2nd in comic shops and digital stores. Oscar Bazaldua and Sara Pichelli provide the art, with David Marquez providing the cover.
