Marvel will release a series of variant covers featuring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other characters as Marvel heroes.
For the past few years it’s felt like you’ve been more likely to find Mickey Mouse on the covers of comics published by other comics companies rather than the one Disney actually owns, but that will change next year.
As a part of Disney’s “100 Years of Wonder” event, Marvel will publish a series of variant covers featuring Mickey Mouse and company, starting with Amazing Spider-Man #17 in January. 100 Years of Wonder celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Walt Disney Company.

The new title by Chris Cantwell and Ángel Unzueta sets its course in March.
Following the launch of Star Trek later this month, which features Benjamin Sisko leading a “motley crew” made up of characters from various Star Treks, comes Star Trek: Defiant, which features Worf leading an even motlier crew of Star Trek characters against “a galaxy-spanning threat.”
Star Trek: Defiant will feature the recent Iron Man creative team of Chris Cantwell and Ángel Unzueta, who reunite on this “dirty dozen” approach to Star Trek. Joining Worf on his mission are Lore, B’Elanna and Mr. Spock, among others.
“Ever since I made my dad take me to my first Star Trek convention when I was ten, I have been waiting for this moment,” Cantwell said. “When Heather Antos, Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly reached out to me about writing the first book to spin out of their flagship Star Trek title, I wanted the quality to match my massive wells of enthusiasm; I knew this book needed to be undeniably Star Trek first and foremost, but also something new and complex that would have readers leaning forward as they engaged with a more unexpected journey to the stars. Whereas the new Star Trek book carries forward the grand tradition of Starfleet’s saga of discovery and exploration, Defiant immediately sets out to break the rules of the Federation and go on a fugitive run from Starfleet with a cast of Trek’s best iconoclastic heroes and ne’er-do-wells, each of them straddling worlds in their identities and calibrations in their moral compasses as they embark on a high-stakes galactic manhunt…the Prime Directive be damned.”
