Marvel Comics latest team-up with its parent company comes with the Disney Kingdoms mini series “Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.” The Western series based on the Disney themeparks ride arrives in March from the creative team of Dennis Hopeless and Tigh Walker. And after showing off an initial variant from Pascal Ferry, the publisher today gave CBR News and exclusive first look at another cover by Tom Raney.
“I think the trick is to start with a compelling character and story,” Hopeless told CBR about the challenge in translating a ride to a comic. “We’ll be mining a lot of great world-building and personality from the attractions but all of it is being used to service the story. Uninitiated readers won’t need to know anything but what they see on the page. It’s a self-contained story set in a cool Old West mining town. DisNerds, on the other hand, will be treated to a lot of fun Easter eggs and attraction callbacks. We’re shooting for the best of both worlds.”
Watch for the series this March from Marvel Comics.
