Pixar_SD08_EXCL_COVER_sm.jpgBoom! Studios has just announced a new partnership with Disney/Pixar to produce a series of comics based on some favorite Pixar titles and characters.

Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Wall*E are all on the list, but probably the most exciting is the announcement that Mark Waid will be writing The Incredibles title for the company that will feature cover art by Darwyn Cooke.

“Today, American comic books are aimed primarily at an older readership. Comics produced for an upcoming generation of readers are scarce – and BOOM! Studios aims to do something about that,” said Waid.  “There will be comics for kids again!”

Those of you attending the San Diego Comic Con can stop by Boom! Studios’ booth (#2543) and pick up a preview book for the new titles for a mere $5.00.

“It’s nothing short of an honor to work with Disney Publishing Worldwide and Pixar for this project,” said BOOM! Studios co-founder Ross Richie.  “We found kindred spirits in the creative counterparts we have at both companies, and have just really had a fantastic time finding the right writer and artist combinations to do the source material justice.  I think young and old alike are going to love these books!”
