Earlier this year Boom Studios launched a rather well-received kids imprint with comics based on characters from Jim Henson’s Muppet Show and Pixar’s animated movies. Next up? Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories #699 and Mickey Mouse and Friends #297, according to ICv2.com. The last publisher to release these long-running titles was Gemstone. Apparently Boom won’t be continuing Gemstone’s bigger, more expensive format, but will publish 24-page issues at a $2.99 price point.
UPDATE: Matt Brady talks to Boom publisher and co-founder Ross Richie about the Boom/Disney deal on the main site, and you can read the interview here.
