SLG Publishing Creates Comics in Disney Deal
Posted on January 9, 2006SLG Publishing recently announced a partnership with Disney Publishing Worldwide to publish four new Disney-inspired comic book series: Haunted Mansion, TRON, Wonderland and Gargoyles. The first issue of The Haunted Mansion, a comic book anthology based on the classic Disney E Ticket attraction debuted in October, 2005. The Haunted Mansion features stories by SLG Publishing's Roman Dirge (Lenore) and Serena Valentino (Gloomcookie, Nightmares & Fairy Tales). The picture on the right shows concept art that has already been created for TRON. The creators working on TRON include Landry Walker, Eric Jones and Louie De Martinis.
SLG's Haunted Mansion comic book draws from the strong visual elements of the ride for it's stories and will not be based on the feature film. "The ride's elements really lend itself to an anthology comic book" said SLG Publishing president and series editor Dan Vado "there are 999 ghosts living in the mansion, that means there is potential for 999 different stories."
