I hang out with an awful lot of comic book dorks, and many of them have been cowering in fear since Disney’s fateful acquisition of Marvel, wondering what impact The Mouse will have on their favourite superheroes. Generally, I’ve told them not to worry – Warner Bros has owned DC for, what, like, thirty years, and if you ask me, that’s been nothing but good news for Dr. Bruce Batman and Friends.
But I digress. Check this bizness out, as it’s the first Disney/Marvel tie-in I’ve seen since the acquisition, and it’s geek chic as hell.
Do I really need to explain it? It’s Marvel heroes, done up TRON-style. These are variant covers of regular issues, so I don’t know how much more than ads for the upcoming TRON: Legacy these are (probably 0% more), but you gotta admit, this is totally new kinds of ballin’.
Well, you don’t have to admit it, but we’re all friends, here.
