Disney and Marvel have unveiled the cover art for the first edition of the new Big Thunder Mountain Railroad comic book. The new 5 edition comic book series will be written by Dennis Hopeless and will feature the untold story of how the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad became the well-known runaway railroad it is today.
Dennis said to CBR that “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.”
Look for this new series to hit comic book stores in March of 2015
