IDW Publishing has announced plans to publish new Big Hero 6 comics, based of course on the Marvel characters which were recently adapted into Walt Disney Animation feature.
The news was announced in the opening moments of IDW's "Stars of 2018" panel at New York Comic Con on Saturday evening.
While it might seem surprising, IDW Publishing has had a long-term relationship with Marvel Entertainment and its parent company Disney, publishing reprints of various Marvel work, a well as new Star Wars material.
Back in 2014 when the Big Hero 6 movie was released, Marvel's Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso said that his company had no plans to do new comic books with the characters.
A Big Hero 6 manga adaptation was published in Japan coinciing with the movie's release, and Yen Press translated and republished it in 2015.
No firm details about the project were disclosed, but Joe Hughes will be editing the books.
