Prepare For A Cuteness Overload In ‘Marvel Tsum Tsum’ #1 [Preview]
Disney's Tsum Tsum brand is a global phenomenon that has branched out from stackable plush toys to all aspects of media and merchandise, including a hugely popular mobile game and now a brand new Marvel Tsum Tsum miniseries from Marvel Comics that brings the cute creatures to the Marvel Universe as they escape the clutches of the covetous Collector!
The miniseries is written by Jacob Chabot with art by David Baldeon, and features a crate of the cuddly creatures falling off the back of a space truck and being discovered by a group of friends from Brooklyn. As The Collector seeks to get back what he sees as his property, there's one huge wrinkle: The Tsum Tsums believe themselves to be the true Marvel superheroes.
Adaptations of merchandise lines and video games have been big hits the past couple of years, with titles like DC Comics Bombshells and Contest of Champions creating entire worlds around outside concepts. Now, how about an Avengers Academy comic that focuses specifically on The Wasp as the coolest girl at school who takes new transfer Kamala Khan under her wing?
Check out the preview below:
