We’ve already seen Marvel take on the Haunted Mansion as part of its Disney Kingdoms line, and in March of 2015, the comic publisher will head to Big Thunder Mountain.
From acclaimed writer Dennis Hopeless (Spider-Woman, Avengers Undercover) and rising star artist Tigh Walker (Avengers Undercover) comes an all-new 5-issue series revealing the never-before-told saga of how the dangerous gold mine of Big Thunder Mountain became the haunted legend it is today. Malevolent mine owner Barnabas T. Bullion is determined to shelter his teen daughter Abigail from the dangers of the Wild West. Little does he know his brave young daughter has other ideas – which include robbing her own father’s mine as a masked bandit!
A couple of things about the this announcement that strike me; at first glance, I thought The Shadow was hijacking the train, and the second is, I hope Hopeless and Walker were able to get unlimited access to the Big Thunder Mountain ride for “research” purposes.
The first issue is 32-pages and has a $3.99 cover price.
