Boom! Studios is a comic book and graphic novel publisher headquartered in Los Angeles, California, co-founded by Ross Richie and Andrew Cosby in 2005. The BOOM! Studios imprint publishes full-color science fiction, fantasy, action, horror and super-hero titles. Additional imprints include the all-ages KaBOOM! label (formerly named BOOM Kids!) and BOOM! Town, which publishes underground comix and literature-focused comics.
In 2008, Boom! signed a deal with the Walt Disney Company to produce comic books based on their properties and secured newsstand distribution as part of their new kid-friendly imprint, Boom Kids! Their initial line-up of Disney comics consisted of several mini-series based on Pixar films, with the Toy Story, The Incredibles, and Cars comics later getting regular series.
However, due to personal issues with the writers of The Incredibles comic, Boom!'s Disney comic line did not last long. The Pixar titles were cancelled in the fall of 2010. Several of Boom!'s Pixar comics have since been reprinted by Marvel Comics in 2011 and 2012, but eventually stopped due to poor sales. However, the first four issues of the WALL•E comic were reprinted in Joe Books' Disney-Pixar Comics Treasury.
