  1. I just read this myself and came over. It is just bad news to me personally.

    Ok on one hand they will have a lot more potential money and backing and be better able to absorb hits and market fluctuations.

    But on the other Disney has a bad reputation for being controlling and manipulative with anything it owns. Look at how Pixar ran away until they could get more say in what they did. Since Disney brands everything to kids some of the smart and mature comics could be a thing of the past.

  2. I don’t think much will change near term, but I don’t see this ending well.

    Especially when Disney inevitably decides to take back all the movie properties over time.

  3. it’ll be revealed sometime soon that howard the duck is the long lost brother of donald..at least this time when someone dies, they reappear as figures made out of clouds..

  4. So….

    The Mouse owns The Wolverine…..

    Somehow, I find that quite sad, and wonder how Disney will eventually treat this treasure trove of beloved characters.
