Bleeding Cool has been following the rather intricate decisions that led Marvel Comics not to publish any new Big Hero 6 comics or reprint any of their Big Hero 6 comics ahead of the upcoming Disney movie loosely based on their comic.
Instead, Yen Press has the rights to republish the Disney-originated manga published in Japan as a prequel to the movie.
And Disney publishing have the rights to lots of spinoff children's books.
But what about comic books?
Well it appears it's Joe Books to the rescue, already with an extensive list covering Frozen, Pixar and the Disney Princesses books. More on that to report today, I think.
But now adding to that, Joes Books, run by Adam Fortier. will be publishing brand new Big Hero 6 comic books – and novels.
And Marvel… won't.
Whaddarevoltin' development. Get ready for a lot of Joe Books stories today….
