This sounds really cool. If Disney are doing them on existing properties too which they mention this could be awesome. I really want to see a cool Pirates of the caribbean comic. Maybe even a Buzz lightyear comic which could be so awesome for reasons.
But the fact they are making comics to turn into films ..... does this mean Disney will have the closest comic book adaptations ever?
