Boom! Goes the Dynamite
Boom! Studios' acquisition of the "traditional" American Disney comics license, hinted at previously by at least one (sketchy) source, now appears to be a reality, judging by this article. Talk about a radical departure from the recent past... I know nothing about either Ultraheroes or Wizards of Mickey, but Boom! appears to be ready to ride them for no fewer than ten 24-page issues apiece. The material definitely appears to be aimed at younger readers, and, insofar as this will help to rebuild a "critical mass" of Disney comics readers in this country, I can appreciate the thinking. But will Gemstone readers be carried along for the ride?
