On May 6, Disney rolls out its “Space Mountain” graphic novel by “Smallville” writer Bryan Q. Miller and acclaimed “Batman” artist Kelley Jones. Based on Disney’s theme park ride of the same name, the OGN follows two Magellan Science Academy cadets on a trip 24 hours into the future on a mission that goes awry. CBR has the exclusive reveal of the OGN’s full wraparound cover, which contains tweaks and additions to the promotional image released in 2013.
The first of a planned trilogy, the “Space Mountain” OGN isn’t the only comic based on a Disney attraction. Marvel Comics recently published the first issue of “Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird,” a comic based on a developed, but never-realized, them park attraction.
