Disney and Pixar are launching some new comics and graphic novels for kids, and they'll feature some familiar faces (and worlds) too.

Forbes has announced that Disney will be partnering with Mad Cave Studios' young readers imprint Papercutz to bring familiar Disney characters to graphic novels and comics for kids and young readers, beginning in just a few months' time.

In fact, this new line will be starting off in May with a Free Comic Book Day Special featuring Encanto and Turning Red. (Free Comic Book Day is on May 4 this year.) The following publications will be (in order) The New Adventures of: Turning Red Vol. 1 (May 14, 2024), Phineas & Ferb Vol. 1 (June 11, 2024), The New Adventures of: Encanto Vol 1 (June 25, 2024), Frozen: Olaf's Comics Collection (July 16, 2024), Disney Fairies 4 in 1 Vol. 1 (July 23, 2024), and 101 Dalmatians Early Readers (August 13, 2024).

No creators have been mentioned for any of the titles as yet.

About the new line, Mad Cave Studios founder and CEO Mark London told Forbes, “It's really an honor for a company like Mad Cave to be able to publish Disney content, and bring IPs to readers that that they actually grew up with.”
