All-New Mighty Mouse, Charmed Comics Announced

As part of their slate of New York Comic Con announcements, Dynamite Entertainment has revealed that will publish comics based on Mighty Mouse and Charmed in 2017. Dynamite has partnered with CBS Consumer Products for a new license agreement that will bring two franchises to the publisher.

The new Mighty Mouse series will mark the character’s return to comics after 30 years away. Debuting in 1942, Mighty Mouse appeared in 80 feature film shorts which were then reran as a Saturday morning cartoon throughout the following decades. The iconic cartoon character was also revived in 1979 in “The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle,” and again in 1987’s “Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures.” The new comic series from Dynamite will arrive in time for the character’s 75th anniversary.

“Mighty Mouse is as much a part of American pop culture as the two characters he is inspired by,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and publisher. “The original comics and animation entertained generations of fans, and with the popularity of superhero movies, there couldn’t be a better time for his return! I am thrilled that Dynamite will be able to bring this timeless hero to a whole new generation of fans.”

Additionally, Dynamite has acquired the license to publish comics based on “Charmed.” Debuting in 1998, the WB series lasted for eight seasons and amassed a devoted fanbase. The series centers around the powerful Halliwell sisters, a trio of witches — a.k.a. the Charmed Ones — who use their combined powers to protect the innocent. The “Charmed” license was previously held by Zenescope Entertainment, who also published comics continuing where the television series left off.

“Charmed is a perfect fit for Dynamite for a number of reasons,” said Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci. “We have had tremendous success with cult television properties, and the Halliwell sisters will be right at home. Our plans for these new series are sure to please comics readers and die-hard TV junkies alike!”

Further information regarding Dynamite’s “Mighty Mouse” and “Charmed” projects is forthcoming.

Official Press Release

DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES LICENSE WITH CBS CONSUMER PRODUCTS TO REVIVE EVERGREEN TELEVISION PROPERTIES

Mighty Mouse and Charmed to Return in All-New Comic Book Series for 2017

October 4, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products announced today a new license agreement for two classic properties from the rich history of television: the animated legend Mighty Mouse, and the hit 90’s series Charmed!

Mighty Mouse returns to comics for the first time in 30 years, just in time for the character’s 75th anniversary in 2017! Mighty Mouse was first conceived in 1942 as a parody of another cape and cowl hero introduced a few years earlier, and went on to star in countless animated films for the better part of the next 20 years, finding a new life on Saturday mornings in the 1960’s.

“Mighty Mouse is as much a part of American pop culture as the two characters he is inspired by,” says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and publisher. “The original comics and animation entertained generations of fans, and with the popularity of superhero movies, there couldn’t be a better time for his return! I am thrilled that Dynamite will be able to bring this timeless hero to a whole new generation of fans.”

Charmed premiered critical acclaim and commercial success, and by the end of its eight-season run, had won numerous awards and aired in more than 20 countries. Charmed follows the Halliwell sisters: three witches, each powerful in her own right, but invincible when they come together to summon The Power of Three. Protecting innocents from the underworld’s demons, the Halliwell sisters battle evil from their family home in San Francisco.

“Charmed is a perfect fit for Dynamite for a number of reasons,” says Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci. “We have had tremendous success with cult television properties, and the Halliwell sisters will be right at home. Our plans for these new series are sure to please comics readers and die-hard TV junkies alike!”

Details on Dynamite’s upcoming Mighty Mouse and Charmed publishing programs will be released in the coming months.
