Here’s an interesting bit of news from Boom! Studios; their kids line of comics will be appearing on the store shelves of the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store, right next door to the El Capitan Theatre.Â Talk about perfect placement to sell you products!
There’s a reason we like Boom! Studios, they are the small guy that is making it big, by doing the right thing.Â Where will this deal lead?Â I can see the Boom!/Disney relationship expand even further, and it will not come as any surprise when the company announces it will handle all the Disney comics.
Complete press release after the jump.

It’s been a very good week for Boom! Studios.Â First it announced a new imprint – Boom! Kids – that will house the company’s kid friendly titles.Â The company then followed up by announcing a distribution deal with Kable Distribution Services, Inc., which will get those Boom! Kids titles onto newsstands across the country.
â€œWe want to get our line of Pixar/Disney comics into the hands of every child out there,â€ said Ross Richie, Co-Founder and Publisher of BOOM! Studios. â€œWorking with KDS, who has a strong record with handling kids comics in the newsstand market, I am confident that we will meet that goal.â€
That very cool news was topped late yesterday with the announcement that The Incredibles: Family Matters #1 and The Muppet Show Comic Book #1 sold out on the day of release.

Don’t get overly excited – it’s not that Morrissey, but rahter Paul Morrissey formerly of Tokyopop who’s landed a new position at Boom! Studios.Â Boom! is being very secretive about the position and what titles (perhaps a couple of new ones) Morrissy will be working on.Â Guess we’ll have to wait until SDCC for the big announcements – and I have it on good authority that Boom! will have a lot of big announcements at San Diego.
