    Disney/Pixar comics from Boom! Studios

    For Immediate Release:


    BOOM! STUDIOS AND DISNEY/PIXAR
    ANNOUNCE NEW LINE OF COMIC BOOKS

    EXCLUSIVE COMIC-CON PREVIEW BOOK ON SALE AT THE BOOM! STUDIOS BOOTH (#2543)


    When was the last time you gave a comic book to a kid?


    July 23rd, 2008 - Los Angeles, CA - BOOM! Studios and Disney Publishing Worldwide announced today that they will bring brand new stories from beloved Pixar properties to the comic book medium. Comics will feature characters from the groundbreaking TOY STORY franchise and blockbuster FINDING NEMO film, as well as this summer’s box office success WALL*E.


    BOOM! Studios is also proud to announce Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid will be writing THE INCREDIBLES comic book, featuring cover art by DC: THE NEW FRONTIER writer and artist Darwyn Cooke!


    “Today, American comic books are aimed primarily at an older readership. Comics produced for an upcoming generation of readers are scarce - and BOOM! Studios aims to do something about that,” said Waid. “There will be comics for kids again!”


    To commemorate this historic partnership, BOOM! will be releasing a special preview book featuring sneak previews of upcoming projects using the characters from TOY STORY, FINDING NEMO, and MONSTERS, INC. Featuring commentary by Waid, this preview will give comic fans and interested parents a look at the quality comics BOOM! will be producing for a younger audience by the end of the year.


    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!”
