MARVEL Comics merges with DISNEY

Posted by invizweb on August 31, 2009

At 10:15 AM, EST Disney held an investment conference call that basically announced their acquisition of MARVEL Comics.  Newsarama broke the story here, with a press release from the entertainment corporation.   Some reactions here.  And a poll here.  I am guessing more details are to come in following days, especially the reaction of BOOM Studios, which recently acquired rights to put out some Disney licensed titles, and perhaps former Disney partner Gladstone.

As a fan of the comic medium, I was going to make a Mickey Mouse Captain America joke but I was beaten to the punch no less than a dozen times already.
