I think this is good news, for all the reasons already stated.

As someone has already pointed out Disney owned Miramax, Touchstone and Pixar and pretty much let them get on with it.

I think that's what they'll do with Marvel. I mean it has a winning formula at the moment, why mess with it.

They may invest in the Marvel Adventures line a bit more. Marvel might end up printing a Disney range of comics for kids. More low selling titles supported, which bascially means more content = more jobs, so all your guys wanting to break in may have a better chance now.

But what has me really stoked is 2 things:
1) Malibu imprint - With Disney backing Marvel maybe able to sort out this mess and start printing the gems of that line in the MU again, Prime, Nightman, Ultraforce.

2) Someone else pointed this out on another board, don't Disney own the Crossgen library. So that means Marvel could maybe start producing those comics. Sojurn, Ruse etc.

All with Joey Da Q at the helm.

This could be great, great news.
