I want Marvel to stay with Diamond. Them going thru another dist is what I said may result in chaos.

Boom! has the rights to most Pixar, Muppets (not sure if this covers all Henson properties like SStreet, Fraggles) and I believe they recently got Mickey and Donald from Gemstone.

Also a little over a year ago Amhet Zappa and friends were to create a line called Disney Kingdom Comics, which we've heard zilch about for awhile.

Hmmm. I had not heard of this either, but you prompted me to research.

Here is a small portion of the 2008 article:

"The Walt Disney Studios has signed a multi-year deal with Ahmet Zappa, Harris Katleman and Christian Beranek to oversee the newly christened Kingdom Comics, an innovative new venture of developing graphic novels to create new film projects for the Studio as well as re-imagining and rejuvenating motion pictures from the Disney live-action Vault, it was announced today by Oren Aviv, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production.

Kingdom Comics will soon announce some of the top graphic novelists and artists in the genre who will collaborate on upcoming projects. Disney Publishing Worldwide, the largest distributor of comic books in the world, will have the first opportunity to distribute publications created by Kingdom Comics."

Interesting....

This reminds me that I do have the full runs of Volume 1 & 2 of the manga style B&W comics of Disney & Square Enix's KINGDOM HEARTS which was published by Tokyopop.
