Figment and Dreamfinder to get their own Comic Book

figmentI have been very curious to see where the Disney Kingdoms comic line goes after their trip to the Museum of the Weird.

The Disney Kingdoms brand of comics launched this week with Seekers of the Kingdom #1. The first issue sets the stage as siblings, Max and Melody Keeps discover that there is more to their family than their parents have been letting on, including their adventurous Uncle Roland and a secret entrance to a strange place called the Museum of the Weird.

“Museum of the Weird” sound familiar? It’s the name of a walk through attraction that Walt wanted to build in connection with the haunted mansion and it was based on ideas by Rolly Crump.
