Ah, Disney. Disney has been a household name for many years. The iconic mouse is a well-recognized character to many people throughout the world. Of course, Disney’s popularity led them to expand their property to merchandise and TV channels, to even comics. Although Disney comics mostly center around Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck, there are plenty of other characters that get their spotlight including Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and comic-exclusive character Eta Beta. When one hears the word Disney comics, usually one name comes to mind. Carl Barks. Carl Barks is known as one of the best writers when it comes to Donald Duck comics and is the creator of the richest duck in the world, Scrooge McDuck. He also created Duckburg along with many iconic characters you probably know such as Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glumgold and the Beagle Boys. This man created a world for the Disney comic characters to live in, and that world, along with its inhabitants still live to this day. Another name that may come to mind is Don Rosa. Although a lot of people believe he isn't as good as Carl Barks, he’s still very good in his own way. His most famous story is probably “The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck”. What’s great about Don Rosa is that he took the already established characters Carl Barks did, and expanded them. This man gave us more in depth stories and even origin stories about many of the citizens of Duckburg. Whether you grew up with Disney comics or are just discovering them for the first time, there are plenty of stories to go around, and many different series. You got the Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge series, Mickey Mystery, Secret Agent: Donald Duck, Wizards of Mickey, Indiana Goofy, Junior Duck, Super Goofy, Phantom Duck (my personal favourite) and much more. There’s an entire universe created out there in the Disney comics that really make them special. These stories are beyond what you’d see in cartoons, which is what makes them really stand out. So, anyone out there have fond memories of reading any stories or are you just jumping on the bandwagon now? Either way, here’s the place to discuss them!
We had topics for Wreck it Ralph and Frozen, so now it's time for Big Hero 6! This is Disney's next animated feature, which is coming out November 2014...in the US. February 2015 for us Brits (dammit). This is the first time Disney is doing an animated feature based on a Marvel comic, albeit a rather obscure Marvel comic. Set in the fictional city of Sanfransokyo, the movie is centered on a young boy called Hiro Hamada and his self created robot sidekick Baymax. After uncovering an evil plot (it's unknown what this evil plot is), they decide to join a team of inexperienced fighters. Together with Wasabi No-Ginger, Honey Lemon, Go Go Tamago, and Fred, they are Big Hero Six! Yep, that's the only picture available of these guys...and it's silhouetted. And that's a problem with this movie. We know hardly anything about it! No teaser trailer, no poster, no villain, the voice cast hasn't even been announced yet! There's lots of Tumblr's with random concept art and low quality images of character designs but I honestly don't feel like browsing through all those posts just to find them and post them here. XP Although, I do have an image here which was recently posted on Rotoscopers. Just some concept art of Hiro and Baymax. And there's this old teaser trailer which shows what the city of Sanfransokyo might look like in the final cut. So what do you think? Anyone looking forward to this? Personally, I can't wait! Not only is this the first time Disney is making a superhero movie, but I'm really looking forward to seeing the character designs. I hope they go for an anime look which would make it stand out from other animated films. I want this to be just as good as Wreck it Ralph or even better! And who knows, we might have another The Incredibles on our hands.
