You go to bed one night, sleep in a little bit later than usual, and when you wake up, the whole fucking comic book world has gone insane.
Disney has bought Marvel Comics. For four-billion dollars. I can’t even afford new shoes, Disney shits out four-billion dollars like nothing. Everyone in the comic book industry is currently running around with their hair on fire, unsure of the ramifications of this acquisition. Maybe we’ll see Wolverine on The View? Maybe there will be even more bureaucracy to suffer through when getting big events planned? Maybe this will allow Marvel to continue to use comic books as breeding grounds for action figures, movies, t-shirts and theme parks while making absolutely no money on the actual paper comic book for a while longer? That’d be great for me. And maybe, maybe we’ll see a fucking Pixar movie featuring Marvel comic book characters, which would send me into insane fits of ecstasy:
When asked if there was potential for cross-polination between Marvel and Pixar, Disney said that Pixar’s John Lasseter has met with key Marvel creative executives recently and the group got “pretty excited, very fast.” Disney will look at all opportunities and thinks there are some exciting product that could come from this sort of partnership.
Can you imagine that shit? Who the fuck knows what’s going on though, or what could happen. Crazy shit for crazy times.- Caffeine Powered
