Marvel Comics is delving into the wild, wonderful world of Disney in a big way for the first time in January with Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird #1.
Coming from Brandon Seifert and Karl Moline, the comic is based on the Museum of the Weird addition to the Haunted Mansion attraction--something that was fully designed but never constructed, and which almost became a major motion picture from Disney at one point. The comic is on full-tilt with its relationship to the theme parks, with one of the Disney Imagineers providing a variant cover for the comic (though whether it's a comic book cover or just a repurposed piece of Museum of the Weird concept art will likely not be fully clear until the image is released).
