Disney Publishing Worldwide announced today that it will release Disney Digicomics based on Warren Spector’s upcoming Disney Epic Mickey this fall for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Disney Epic Mickey “Tales of the Wasteland” will consist of six eight-page comics, and will feature characters and settings from the game. Author Peter David will pen the stories, while artist Claudio Sciarrone will provide the art.
Disney will also release a 64-page graphic novel based on Disney Epic Mickey that will also be written by Peter David, and will feature artwork by Paolo Mottura and Fabio Celoni that will echo the visually stunning style of the game. Disney will release the graphic novel in print as well as digitally.
Is it me, or does it seem a bit strange to tell the entire game story in graphic novel form before the game is released, especially since it is “retelling the epic journey of Mickey Mouse in Wasteland”? Why would I want to know the whole story before I play the game? I mean, I can’t wait to read it because I’m already obsessed with the game world, but still.
