Disney Publishing Launches Marvel Press Imprint, Origin Storybooks

Not much detail on this yet, but Disney Publishing Worldwide is hosting a panel at the San Diego Con about their Marvel publishing program. To promote it, they sent out this information:

DISNEY PUBLISHING AND MARVEL JOIN FORCES

For the first time, Disney Publishing is partnering with Marvel to take our publishing programs to the Marvel Universe — a place beyond our own vast imaginations, where superheroes swing from New York City skyscrapers and villains plot to advance their own self-interests. Marvel’s rich history is fertile ground for storytelling, and Disney Book Group’s newest imprint, Marvel Press, and DPW licensees will cultivate it with picture books, chapter books, novels, and storybooks, along with other groundbreaking ways of telling these amazing, classic stories.

So if you know a kid who wants more ways to focus on favorite Marvel superheroes, it looks like there will be PLENTY of product aimed at them.

You can learn more about this “amazing assortment of Marvelous kids books!” on Sunday, July 24, at 3 PM. “Editors from Disney Publishing Worldwide and Marvel” will “unveil their new line of Marvel Origin Storybooks for kids, featuring modern retellings of some of Marvel’s most iconic characters, such as Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, and the X-Men.”
