Find out this May everywhere books and comics are sold.
“The team over at Marvel is some of the best in comics publishing — Dan, Joe, Axel, and Tom are great at what they do, and I’m sure the characters will be in excellent hands. I certainly love the material they’re collecting from our CARS: RALLY RACE graphic novel. Landry Walker and Marcio Takara were unable to finish their last arc of THE INCREDIBLES so I hope Marvel’s able to complete the story, I for one would love to read it. Working with Disney and Pixar was a highlight in my 6 years of BOOM! publishing. Those are some great folks! Meanwhile, Mickey, Donald and Darkwing fans can look forward to some great stories from BOOM Kids! and all the BOOM Kids! fans need not fret — BOOM Kids! 2.0 is right around the corner.”
