Disney to buy Marvel in $4bn deal 
Entertainment giant Walt Disney is to buy Marvel Entertainment in a shares and
cash deal valued at $4bn (£2.5bn).

So... with the acquisition of Marvel under the banner of Disney, does this have
positive results for the future of Disney comics in the USA?  Will BOOM! and
others eventually lose their contracts (or will not be renewed) in favor of
gathering all Disney-related titles under Marvel (again... LOL)?

Will there be new titles like "Pirates of the Carribean" and other successful
movie tie-ins aside from just animated features?

Will Spider-Ham ever meet the Duck Avenger?
