Disney Throws Marvel Comics A Bone And Lets Them Appear At D23

It’s not so secret that Disney only bought Marvel in order to make a ton of money off their intellectual properties through movies. The $4 billion investment in 2009 has earned Disney over $18 billion since. Comichron estimates that in 2018, the entire comics industry sold only $1.095 billion worth of comics. This might be why Disney doesn’t care that noted Japanese impersonator Akira Yoshida is Editor-in-Chief.

But for Marvel’s 80th anniversary, they’ll be appearing at D23, Disney’s massive convention in celebration of itself. The publisher will have copies of Marvel Comics #1000, a legacy comic looking back on the company’s 80 year history. Marvel has created a D23 variant cover featuring Mickey Mouse by Humberto Ramos with colors by Edgar Delgado.

Marvel Comics #1000 is set to release August 28 and D23 takes place in Anaheim August 23-25, 2019.
