Linkfest: SDCC and more

This week’s big news in kids’ comics is that Boom! Studios and Disney Publishing Worldwide have signed a deal to produce comics based on Pixar properties, starting with a four-issue series based on The Incredibles. Here’s the official press release at the Boom! blog. If you’re fortunate enough to be at SDCC, check out their sampler; the rest of us will just have to wait.

Also, while the comic seems to be an afterthought here, Disney has renewed its contract with Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment.

Some reviews: At Read About Comics, Greg McElhatton reviews Frank Cammuso’s Knights of the Dinner Table: The Dodgeball Chronicles. Matthew Brady takes a look at Magic Trixie at his blog, Warren Peace Sings the Blues. John reviews The Dayan Collection, a set of Japanese picture books from Dark Horse, at Shuffleboil. Steve Higgins checks out vol. 1 of Flight Explorer at PLAYBACK:stl. (Via Journalista.)
