When Disney bought Marvel a few years ago, imaginations around the world ran wild with ideas of collaborations between the two companies. Since Pixar is also a subsidiary of Disney, many fans had hoped to see some sort of collaboration between Pixar and Marvel Comics. Comics based on Pixar properties are currently being published by Marvel, but many of those that have been announced had previously been published through BOOM! Comics. USA Today has debuted a few special cover images for some established comic series that are running an “I Am Captain America” theme and has noted that a few Pixar employees are helping out by contributing their own artwork. Read on for a look at the covers!
Pixar story artist Bobby Rubio contributed this Incredible Hulks #632 cover, featuring a kindergarten teacher reading to children in a classroom.
Additionally, Pixar animator Austin Madison drew the following New Mutants #27 cover, featuring a Little League pitcher.
The covers represent the idea that it is not only Captain America that is a hero and has great moments. This is likely the closest we will ever get to see Pixar working on a Marvel property, as John Lasseter has said that the studio is devoted to developing its own film ideas. However, these covers are pretty sweet so we cannot wait to see some more!
The covers are limited variants, meaning far less of these are produced than the regular covers. You just might have to search them out. Both of the titles will be available in comic stores across the country on July 13! For information about your closest comic book shop, check out Comic Shop Locator.
