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.

    I R groaning loudly. I’m starting not to question the DC KFC crossover.

    I’ll skip the comic, but as I’m already tempted to get the Stitch and Boba Fett Tsum Tsums (I like weird things, and these are pretty weird), I may pick up a Spidey Tsum Tsum doll if they come out. Something different to display on my shelf or desk.
