Two interesting Comic book stories about Disney in the news today.
In an article that mostly rehashes previous coverage the AP writes about Disney’s acquisition of the Marvel brand of comics and how any value opportunities will have to come from the marginal characters. Of course, taking lesser known characters and making stars of them is something Disney does well.
Then there is the odd bit of news that Frank Zappa’s son Ahmet has been tapped to lead Disney’s Kingdom Comics house.
With Marvel fully on board, expect to hear a lot more about Disney and comics in the coming years.
