Titan Comics is getting into the Minions business.
The British-based publisher will launch a line of comics and graphic novels to coincide with the release of "Minions," a feature film spinoff of Universal's "Despicable Me" franchise.
In an announcement on The Hollywood Reporter, Titan publisher Nick Landau stated that the company is "so excited to be part of this wonderful franchise." The first wave launches on June 17 with both digital and physical releases of the first "Minions" comic. The line will eventually include four comic book issues, two digests, two hardcovers and a paperback collection.
The Minions made their big debut in the 2010 film "Despicable Me," which was followed in 2013 with the blockbuster "Despicable Me 2." "Minons" features the voices of Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton.
Universal's "Minions" opens on July 10.
