Irish author Eoin Colfer, best known for his Artemis Fowl series, will write a new Iron Man novel to be published in fall of 2016, Marvel has announced.

Colfer’s version of Iron Man is “an electrifying new take on the Marvel universe’s most famous billionaire superhero,” Marvel says, calling it a “towering tale of armor and adventure.” The book comes as part of Marvel’s spate of new middle grade and YA novels launching next fall, which includes another Black Widow novel, and books Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Rocket and Groot.

Colfer, a former teacher, is Ireland’s children’s laureate. As Colfer adapts a big-screen favorite to the page, his beloved Artemis Fowl is headed for theaters: Kenneth Branagh is signed on to develop and direct the film for Disney.
