Change coming to Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories

Posted on October 30th 2010 in Boom! Studios, News, United States

Starting January 2011, BOOM! Studios is changing the format of some of their Disney comics. Earlier this week the publisher announced that ‘classics are back’. We’ve now learned what’s inside their January line-up and it’s good news for fans of traditional Disney comics.

For the past year we’ve been seeing mostly long Italian adventure stories in BOOM!’s Disney comics, such as Ultraheroes and Wizards of Mickey. It now looks like BOOM! is returning some of their titles to a more traditional format, with several short stories in each issue, featuring both classic reprints and new stories that haven’t been seen in the United States yet.

What I really don’t like about Boom Disney comics is that they have and will have(for the classics as well!!) the same comic with 2 different covers. It will make it very expensive over time. Do you think they will change that idea, and what do you other people think about that?? Don’t get me wrong I love Disney comics and have since the late 1950’s. Allan

I haven’t seen or heard anything about the new Disney comics. I understand BOOM lost the license; then I heard Disney bought out Marvel. Just curious, are the comics even available anymore and where?
