What happens when the Tsum Tsums find their way into the Marvel Universe? SYNERGY!
Marvel has announced a Marvel Tsum Tsums limited mini-series from Jacob Chabot and David Baldeon. While it seems like a punishment, apparently the Tsum Tsums are a big deal around the world, so it makes sense for Marvel to try and get in on the action.
When a crate of these pint-sized piles of fur accidentally falls to Earth en route to The Collector, one small group of Brooklyn teenagers will find out! Oh – and did we mention the Marvel Tsum Tsums believe they’re the real Marvel Heroes?
“Thanks to all the fans, Marvel Tsum Tsum has been the #1 downloaded free game in Japan for nearly two months,” says Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann in a statement for the press. “We’re happy to bring that excitement to the limited series along with a set of variant covers based on the unique art style of the game!”
Disney Tsum Tsum debuted in 2013, and has become a very succesful plush line at Disney stores. I’m officially old, as I’ve never seen these before – granted, I haven’t been in a Disney store for almost a decade, but I don’t get the appeal. I also didn’t get the appeal of Garbage Pail Kids, and that toy line had its own movie.
