Disney buys Marvel. Wow.

Posted By on Mon, Aug 31, 2009 at 5:00 PM

In possibly the biggest comic book news in the last 30 years — in case you haven't heard it yet — today it was announced that Disney has purchased Marvel Entertainment.

Wow, right?

Honestly, I don't know how to even express my sheer flabbergasted-ness over this whole thing. Trust me folks, this is earth-shattering. And, of course the Internet is freaking out over it.

Now, only time will tell if this is a good or bad move for Marvel and the comic book industry. Will Disney meddle with Marvel's comic content (MAX comics, anyone?) — or is this finally the industry's opportunity to reach out to a much-needed younger audience?

More on this later ... but ... wow.
