Marvel Comics today announced that it has joined forces with Disney Publishing to produce a new limited series of comics based on Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story. This will be the first new issue of a title previously produced by BOOM! Comics who no longer have the Disney license.
‘Everyone loves Toy Story, so we’re excited to team with our friends at Disney/Pixar to bring readers all new stories of our favorite characters from these blockbuster films,’ said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. ‘Toy Story allows us to bring great new material to the market that’s not only perfect for kids, but also a great read for fans of all ages. What’s next for Woody and Buzz in these stories? We can’t wait for you to find out!’
In Toy Story issue #1 (of 4), Andy’s new puppy, Buster, loves to play with toys — but if Woody, Buzz and the gang can’t control the playful pooch, all that chewing and shaking will leave them in a world of hurt! Will our heroes make it through in one piece with batteries intact?
Toy Story #1 was written by Tea Orsi and penciled by Antonello Dalena & Teresa Quezada-Geer with a cover by Marco Ghiglione & Silvano Scolari. It will be available in March, 2012.
