Disney comics "not...a success" for SLG Publishing

SLG Publishing, which publishes a number of Disney-licensed comic titles including "The Haunted Mansion," isn't realizing the success they had hoped to achieve with the projects, which also include titles based on Disney's Gargoyles, Tron, and Alice in Wonderland.

Dan Vado, head honcho over at SLG, had this to say in a recent blog posting:

The Disney thing (as I call it) has not been what one might call a success for us. While the comics have sold better than the rest of our line (for the most part) the sales have not justified the amount of time, money and effort that has gone into these projects. ON top of that, I made some bad contractual decisions that are coming back to haunt me. Lesson learned, just as you should never get into a land war in Asia, you should also never make a deal with Disney that involves creating original content with their properties.


RIP.

From what I hear from other insiders, it might still be spared. I certainly hope so. It's such a great series with fun stories. Maybe we should all pitch in with some viral marketing? :)
