Frozen Comes to Dark Horse for an Original Comic Series in August 2018

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new three-issue miniseries to release this August titled Disney FrozenDisney Zootopia Comics and Disney DuckTales: Treasure Trove writer Joe Caramagna and artists from the Kawaii Creative Studio both return to bring some fan-favorite Disney characters to the world of comics. A previous Frozen comic series was released by Joe Books (would you say they “let it go?”).

Disney Frozen #1 finds Queen Elsa and Princess Anna trying to get to the bottom of things when the peace of their beloved kingdom is disrupted. There’s a wild animal loose in the village, destruction in the forest, and unrest brewing in a nearby kingdom. Luckily, Elsa and Anna will have the help of Olaf, Kristoff . . . and a mysterious, adventurous young woman to restore peace in their kingdom.

The first issue of Disney Frozen is scheduled for a summer 2018 release. Dark Horse and Disney will announce additional comics in the coming months.

  • Did Dark Horse buy the license from Joe Books? They’ve been running all the Disney Princess and Frozen titles. But I heard through the grapevine of my comic friends who worked in Joe Books that the company was completely pulling out of Diamond. I heard some other shady stuff about the company, but I haven’t heard that they sold the Princess and Frozen line.

    • Trying to figure that out myself. If you go to Joe Books and click on comics, Frozen doesn’t come up. You need to search for them. I’m guessing they lost the license.

      • I’m not surprised to be honest by some of the stuff I heard from different artists and writers about the company. One of my friends was a writer for Joe Books. They refused to put his name on the trade paperback for his own work. He argued with them back and forth, and they refused to put his name on it. He swore never to work for them again. Another artist had to buy up as many of her books as she could before a) they pulled out of Diamond so she could have access to them and b) they refused to provide her copies to sell at conventions of her own work. I also heard they didn’t put anything into marketing when it came to their titles. They just relied on the “Disney” name to be a selling point, but wouldn’t push any of the work. The writers and artists had to essentially promote it themselves.
