At the Saturday Cup o’ Joe panel, Marvel teased fans with the hint that they would be doing something to do with Crossgen in 2011. After Crossgen entered bankruptcy, Disney bought up its creative properties. Now that Disney owns and operates Marvel Comics, it is seems natural for them to take advantage of the fact. A number of the most respected names in comics worked or created for Crossgen, including Mark Waid, Chuck Dixon, and Greg Land.
Eisner-winning comics writer Brian Michael Bendis has just announced that he will be a writer and producer on the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.
Meanwhile, over at the Disney end of the business, it has been announced that Disney’s new videogame Epic Mickey will have comic and minicomic accompaniments, including a 60 page graphic novelization of the game’s plot, written by Peter David.
DC has announced that they will be debuting a new computer-animated Green Lantern animated series on Cartoon Network next year.
