>> the big problem on the publishing end will be distribution. Marvel uses Diamond....Disney uses Harper....hrrmmmm.....THIS could cause chaos!

Actually, Disney DOESN'T currently publish OR distribute it's own comics. It licenses out it's brand name and characters for others to do so, thus publishing and distribution will be unaffected.

Disney doesn't currently publish or distribute it's own comic line anymore. Mark Waid's Boom Studios does. They even recently got the rights from Gemstone for Mickey, Donald, Goofy stuff (not just Muppets/Pixar).

BUT Disney still make lots of books and magazines that are published and distributed by Harper Collins. I can see a day MArvel has to go to HP, due to Disney, causing abit of chaos in the distribution realm. The trickle down effect will have Diamond laying off people. DC, Image, Dark Horse etc books being late and may have to think of new ways of distribution.

my 2 cents
