Disney Buys Marvel Comics
I don’t want to write a lengthy post on this event as enormous amount of conversation is happening around the web today.
When I heard this news last week, I just ignored it and didn’t really expect it. But it is real and true. The most expensive comics industry deal is unfolded before our eyes. Check the official news release from Marvel and Disney.
I don’t know how it’s going to affect the future of Spider man and Wolverine but I hate to see Donald and Mickey Mouse playing with Wolverine. Also there are so many Marvel characters are in Universal studio’s theme park, will Disney make fuzz over those?? Let the time to answer that question too.
