New Disney Comics coming soon

When the SLG comics published Disney branded fizzled out after six issues I figured that was it for a while for Disney in the comics publishing biz. But really, Disney was just switching gears and publishers. Boom! Studios is getting reading to release three new comics with a Disney (or in this case Pixar or Muppets) theme.

Cars (two covers)

Cars fans, start your engines! Before the big Dinoco 400 race, rookie sensation Lightning McQueen is interviewed by Darrel Cartrip. Full of braggadocio, McQueen reveals his scrappy origins as “Bulldozer” McQueen–a local short track racer who dreams of the big time…and recklessly plows his way through the competition to get there! Writer(s): Alan J. Porter, Artist(s): Albert Carreres

Incredibles (collect all four covers)

America’s favorite family of superheroes finally returns, courtesy of legendary scribe Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, The Flash)! The Incredibles face terrifying new villains…and friendly new neighbors, all while Mr. Incredible hides a troubling secret from his costumed clan. Four connecting cover variants by acclaimed artist Michael Avon Oeming!

The Muppet Show (two covers)

The incomparable Roger Langridge (Fred The Clown) brings his absurdist humor to The Muppet Show stage! Longing for the swamp, Kermit forlornly plucks his banjo, while Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and the entire gang tries to jolly him out of his funk. Packed full of madcap skits and gags, The Muppet Show is sure to please old and new fans alike.

Look for more titles coming in the future, but you can pre-order these first issues now through a store such as Mailordercomics.com and save a bit off the newsstand price.

    Don’t forget that Gemstone Publishing has been publishing Disney comics in the United States since 2003, with stories featuring Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and the gang. And Disney is very much still in the comic biz, maybe not as much in the US, but very much so in Europe and the rest of the world.

  3. Much as I enjoyed the Haunted Mansion comic, I think these, especially The Incredibles, make clearer business sense. I’m actually surprised it’s taken them this long to try an Incredibles comic.
