Speak of the devil! Only hours ago we were making jokes about Chris Ware joining the Cirque du Soleil and now there is news of an actual Cirque du Soleil comic!
Sadly it is not from Ware—we can just imagine his version of Limber 12-year-old Chinese Acrobats Stories—instead, it’s from Marvel, in a custom comic that ties in with the Vegas spectacle Kà which you will be able to get at this year’s Comic-Con.
Cirque du Soleil put on a stunt at PetCo Park last year, so obviously they like the Comic-Con tie-in. Bryan J.L. Glass, Wellinton Alves and cover artist Michael Del Mundo supply the creative muscle.
KÀ by Cirque du Soleil, the spectacular production at MGM Grand Las Vegas, and Marvel Custom Solutions team up to tell the story of this acclaimed live production through an all-new, collectible comic book. KÀ #1 will debut at the Marvel booth (#2329) during Comic Con International in San Diego, July 12 – 15, 2012.
