I have a treat for fans of the Disney Kingdoms comic series. Earlier this summer, I shared details about a new comic series inspired by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Today, I have a look at a variant cover and a preview of artwork from this new series that debuts this fall.
This variant cover was created by Walt Disney Imagineer Jason Grandt. It features the lovable Orange Bird from Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park. Jason also created an additional variant cover with José (as seen in this previous Disney Parks Blog article).
The comic series will be presented as five unique stories that take place at the Enchanted Tiki Room which is located on an isolated island. Almost anything can happen and does on the island that is populated by talking (and singing) birds and plants and ancient Tiki gods. Stories will unfold with the arrival of new visitors to the island, and the mysteries revealed may all be connected.
The “Enchanted Tiki Room” series will be written by Jon Adams. Artwork will be penciled by Horacio Domingues with cover artwork by Brian Kesinger.
The Disney Kingdoms team shared with me a few pages from the new series that include a new character named Agnes and her dog Alfred.
These preview pages show Agnes and Alfred entering the Enchanted Tiki Room for the first time and meeting Fritz, Pierre, Michael and Jose!
After seeing this artwork, I can’t wait to read this new series!
Look for the Enchanted Tiki Room series this fall in select merchandise locations at Disney Parks.
What? WHAT? Fine, Disney, take all my money. 😉 😀
CAN’T WAIT UNTIL THE 5TH OF OCTOBER!!!! 😀
When exactly will the first issue be released?
@Mike – This series will be released at Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and Disneyland park in California this fall. I don’t have a confirmed date for locations at Disney Parks. You may, however, find the series at select retailers starting October 5.
I know the Tiki Room has come out in comic book stores on Oct. 5th., but I am still waiting for the Park Exclusive #1 Edition to be released at WDW. I have asked all around the Tiki Room and guest relations, but no one even knows what I am talking about. So, do you know the release date and the location that they will be sold?
Steven, any updates as to where on WDW property these are being sold?
