Cecil Castellucci to Retell Frozen for Young Adults in New Dark Horse Graphic Novel

Dark Horse Comics today announced plans to publish two "new" Frozen graphic novels ahead of the theatrical release of Frozen 2, a press release revealed Tuesday. But the term "new" is used loosely here, as neither actually represents a technically "new" story. The first, Disney Frozen Adventures: Flurries of Fun (not Furries of Fun, unfortunately, which would have been a much more interesting prospect) collects previously released Frozen comics into one trade paperback. The other Disney Frozen YA Retelling is, as the title implies, a retelling of the original Frozen movie, written by Cecil Castellucci with art appearing fully formed out of thin air, apparently, since no artist is announced in the press release.

Look for both titles this fall, and check out the press release below for more info.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
