ACTION & ADVENTURE
ARE ONGOING THIS JANUARY WITH
WIZARDS OF MICKEY &
DISNEY’S HERO SQUAD!
January 7th, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA – Enchantment and excitement are around every corner as two new Disney comics debut this January, WIZARDS OF MICKEY and DISNEY’S HERO SQUAD: ULTRAHEROES.
WIZARDS OF MICKEY #1 continues the epic tale of magical adventure that will finish its first arc in MICKEY MOUSE & FRIENDS issues #296 - #299. Popular enough to garner its own stand alone series, the WIZARDS OF MICKEY serial continues the adventures of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy as they compete in the Grand Wizard’s tournament, determined to win all the pieces of the Sorcerer Supreme’s crown and free Mickey’s master from the clutches of the evil Phantom Blot!
With WIZARDS OF MICKEY spinning off into its own series, MICKEY MOUSE & FRIENDS takes a break with issue #299, while we prepare the next wave of amazing Mickey adventures.
“The fan response to WIZARDS OF MICKEY and DISNEY’S HERO SQUAD has been completely insane,” says BOOM! Disney Editor Aaron Sparrow. “These characters have reached a whole new audience, and fans, old and new, have clamored to have these stories in their own dedicated series. Well, you demanded it and we delivered. WIZARDS OF MICKEY & DISNEY’S HERO SQUAD will be their own series starting this January!”
WIZARDS OF MICKEY is an ongoing series written by Stefano Ambrosio, with delightful interior art by Lorenzo Pastrovicchio. Issue one ships with two covers in a 50/50 split, and a 1/10 incentive cover. The series features fantastic cover art by Magic Eye Studios and has a Diamond Code of NOV090699.
