IDW announce new "Big Hero 6" comic series coming this July
You know what's insane? It's been four years since Big Hero 6 hit theaters. That is crazy.
Four years removed, the movie is as popular as ever, what with its eminent rewatchability, a popular cartoon series, and the ubiquitous presence of the lovable Baymax. For fans of the movie, IDW have just announced some great news: they'll be publishing a new comic series featuring the team. While we may still need to wait for a proper film sequel, this looks to tide us over nicely in the meantime.

Stories to Feature New Adventures Based on the Upcoming Disney Series!
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 27, 2018) – Debuting on Disney Channel on Saturday June 9, Big Hero 6 The Series will usher in new adventures of legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 -- Hiro, Wasabi, Fred, Go Go, Honey Lemon and Baymax -- for viewers. To coincide, IDW will be bringing even more excitement to readers in an all-ages comic book series! The fun kicks off this July with the first issue of an ongoing series.
Protecting San Fransokyo is no easy feat, but Hiro and the team are up to the challenge. “Big Hero 6 The Series features an amazing cast of characters. I couldn’t love them more, and I couldn’t be happier to be working on this book,” said Editor Joe Hughes.
Catching attention with her online comics and zines, burgeoning writer Hannah Blumenreich will lead the new comic series, writing the debut issue with Nicoletta Baldari (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny) providing stylish artwork to bring the characters to life. The first issue will also feature covers by Gurihiru (Gwenpool) and Sophie Campbell (Jem and the Holograms, TMNT).
"I am so excited to write this comic series,” exclaimed Hannah Blumenreich. “I know these characters are near and dear to a lot of people and I hope to do right by them.”
Blumenreich is a new name to me, but Nicoletta Baldari has a great style that worked really well on the Forces of Destiny comics, so I have high hopes for this. Big Hero 6 The Series will hit comic shops this July.
