Boom! Studios moves into family-friendly licensing in a big way with today’s announcement that they will be putting out Pixar comics. I’m excited! I love those characters, and I’m sure many other people do too.
Boom! Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid will write The Incredibles (and can you think of a better choice?) with a cover by Darwyn Cooke. Additional comics will feature characters from Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., Cars, and Wall*E.
Waid was quoted as saying that this was Boom! making “comics for kids again!” That’s a laudable goal — but I hope these are truly all ages books, with something for the adult reader, too, because that’s what makes the Pixar films so great.
