As I said on Facebook -- I care about Disney buying Marvel about as much as I care about the Jonas Brothers buying an accordion.

But there's a link to the CNN story, if you're so inclined.

Edited to add: I am a bit annoyed by all the fawning over "Stan Lee's creations" in the Disney/Marvel coverage. Stan Lee didn't draw any of the comics he co-created. His most important creative partners, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko among them, deserve to be mentioned in these stories.

And edited again to also add: About the only thing I buy from Marvel these days is the occasional Omnibus or Masterworks hardcover. I'm much more interested in their history than the current egregious state of their "universe," mishandled as it's been the past five or six years.

Don't forget Icon's a Marvel imprint.

I doubt that all this will have any negative impact on Icon and, erm, certain books by Brubaker and Phillips that we both enjoy, but I do wonder if this will change Disney's presence in books by other publishers.

I've heard good things about Boom Studio's Pixar comics, and Gemstone's still producing Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck comics, and I wonder if those arrangements will be changing anytime soon.

Yet, I suppose it is a big deal. Front page on the Wall Street Journal. Yet, I've been uninspired even to mention it.

The only way I will get interested is if Disney has to apologize for last week's Holocaust faux pas.
