Disney continues to farm out any comic book project not geared toward the direct market to comic book companies that aren’t Marvel, with Dark Horse announcing a new anthology graphic novel to serve as a companion for the upcoming Pixar film, Toy Story 4. Haden Blackman will write the comic, with art materializing fully formed out of thin air, apparently, since there are no artists mentioned in the press release:
The story continues! It’s been almost a decade since we last checked in with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang. As part of our continued collaboration with Pixar, Dark Horse is pleased to announce a new Toy Story 4 graphic novel anthology that is the perfect companion to the highly anticipated upcoming film!
Writer Haden Blackman brings fun, energy, and heart to this graphic novel that features the toys you know and love—and introduces some new toys, too! The toys are back and once again swept up in an exciting adventure. Join Woody and the Toy Story gang in four connecting stories set before and after Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 for an adventure perfect for the whole family.
The 72-page graphic novel hits stores on May 7th, and will retail for $10.99, costing more per page than Uncanny X-Men #1.
