That was the first thing that popped into my brain when I skimmed across this:
Marvel Entertainment has created a small-screen division, Marvel Television, and named Eisner-winning comic and TV writer Jeph Loeb as its head.
Loeb, ... will oversee the translation of Marvel's popular characters and stories to the television medium, in both live-action and animation formats. Loeb will also oversee the development and distribution of live-action, animated and direct-to-DVD series.
Right now, Marvel is doing its animated series at Starz Media-Film Roman in Burbank (where there's a TAG contract). In the recent past, it was producing direct-to-video animated features out of a small studio in North Hollywood. (A few years back, TAG won an NLRB election to represent the artists there, but never achieved a contract.)
Which leaves the question: Is Marvel -- owned by the Mighty Mouse -- going to continue producing animation by jobbing it out? Or will Disney/Marvel ramp up a new cartoon studio? Or perhaps migrate to one of the Mouse's existing animation facilities?
I wish I had a crystal ball and prescient answer, but right now I have no idea what the plans are for Diz Co.'s new army of comic book characters.
