Marvel officially unveils new Haunted Mansion comic book series
Back in October, Marvel tweeted out a tease that seemed as if we were going to get yet another Disney attraction based comic book based on the Haunted Mansion.
Marvel officially announced that a new comic book series based on the popular Disney attraction is coming, and will be written by Joshua Williamson with pencils by Jorge Coelho and a cover by E.M. Gist.
“There were a lot of characters I wanted to include. The hat box ghost was something I really wanted to do, especially because he’s finally in the ride for the first time since 1969,” Joshua said in an interview with EW. “I wanted to do stuff with the bride, and some of the bigger challenges were finding ways to do…I say the magic tricks that they do in the ride, but that kind of storytelling that they do in the ride.”
Disney already has several comic books dedicated to Disney atttractions, these include Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Figment.
Haunted Mansion #1 will be available in March 2016.
