The global phenomenon is coming to the Marvel Universe, and they’re getting their own series! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce MARVEL TSUM TSUM #1 – an all-new limited series coming this August! Writer Jacob Chabot (The Mighty Skullboy Army) and artist David Baldeon (Captain America, Web Warriors) bring you an in-continuity tale of these stackable sensations as they come face-to-face with their super hero counterparts, and the Marvel Universe at large!

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Tsum Tsums are HUGE! Well, not LITERALLY (they’re actually pretty tiny) but these cute and cuddly creatures are sweeping the globe. So what happens when the Marvel Tsum Tsums find their way into the Marvel Universe? When a crate of these pint-sized piles of fur accidentally falls to Earth en route to The Collector, one small group of Brooklyn teenagers will find out! Oh – and did we mention the Marvel Tsum Tsums believe they’re the real Marvel Heroes?

“We could not be more thrilled with the success of the Marvel Tsum Tsum game in Japan,” says Marvel VP of International Development, CB Cebulski. “The launch of the Marvel Tsum Tsum limited series is a testament to our close working relationship with Disney Japan and the strength of the Marvel brand across Asia.”

“Thanks to all the fans, Marvel Tsum Tsum has been the #1 downloaded free game in Japan for nearly two months,” says Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann. “We’re happy to bring that excitement to the limited series along with a set of variant covers based on the unique art style of the game!”

Since its debut in 2013, Disney Tsum Tsum has quickly become one of the most successful plush lines in Disney Store history, prompting category expansion into softlines, accessories, home décor and more. Featuring classic and new Disney, Marvel and now Star Wars characters, Disney Tsum Tsum’s whimsical design reinterprets everyone’s favorite characters with a unique Japanese aesthetic.

Featuring all your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, this new series is TSUM-thing you won’t want to miss! Get in on all the action when MARVEL TSUM TSUM #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere this August!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
