Anyone who has been to Epcot knows about Figment and Dreamfinder. Disney and Marvel have now teamed up to give Disney fans a look into the origin of these two famous characters. The story is written by Jim Zub and the comic will feature cover art by John Tyler Christopher.
“Expanding the story of Figment has been intimidating, but I’m genuinely enjoying it,” says writer Jim Zub in an interview with Marvel.com. “I want to do right by Disney fans and new readers alike, creating an entertaining story and that comes from working with engaging characters. Digging a bit deeper into Figment and Dreamfinder has been a fun challenge. In so many ways this story really is a ‘Journey Into Imagination’, in both word and deed.”
“After years of requests from Figment fans for new content starring their favorite purple dragon, the Imagineers suggested we expand upon the story told in the Journey Into Imagination attraction,” explained editor Bill Rosemann. “Aiming to surprise them with an adventure they thought they’d never experience, we’re traveling through the mists of time – and from Victorian-era London to the Nightmare nation and revealing how one intrepid inventor became the hero known as Dreamfinder…and also created his famous friend.”
Figment #1 will be on sale June 11, 2014. Don't forget your copy.
