It must be San Diego Comic-Con because suddenly there’s plenty of news about Disney, Pixar, and Comics. Today BOOM! Studios and Disney Publishing Worldwide announced a partnership to move many of Pixar’s titles into the comic book format.
Following on the heels of THE INCREDIBLES comic book release, BOOM! will be publishing all new stories featuring favorite Pixar characters from TOY STORY, CARS, FINDING NEMO and MONSTERS INC. New stories featuring this summer’s blockbuster hit WALL-E will follow shortly thereafter.
“It’s nothing short of an honor to work with Disney Publishing Worldwide and Pixar for this project,” said BOOM! Studios co-founder Ross Richie. “We found kindred spirits in the creative counterparts we have at both companies, and have just really had a fantastic time finding the right writer and artist combinations to do the source material justice. I think young and old alike are going to love these books!”
I can’t wait. The SLG Comics that came out over the last few years have been great! Meanwhile pick up the preview book if you’re at SDCC or eBay, if you’re not.
