A 'Frozen' Comic Book Series Is Coming This Summer

The cold might have never bothered her, anyway, but the heat won't stop Queen Elsa's Frozen comic book series from hitting stands this summer. The first issue drops in July, so fans have only a few months to wait before they can read all about the ongoing adventures of Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and the rest of the Frozen crew.

Frozen is only the latest Disney franchise to get the comic book treatment. Fan favorite '80s cartoons, such as Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers and DuckTales, enjoyed serialized adventures for a time. In 2015, Disney Comics announced its return, with publisher IDW releasing Uncle Scrooge , Donald Duck , Mickey Mouse , and Walt Disney's Comics and Stories .

IDW won't take on Frozen, however. The responsibility of publishing Elsa and Anna's adventures goes to Canadian publisher Joe Books, which currently issues "cinestories" based on Disney animated films and series, including The Good Dinosaur, Gravity Falls, and Zootopia.

Georgia Ball and Benedetta Barone are the creatives responsible for producing the Frozen comic book series' story and artwork. Both have experience working with Disney IPs. Ball writes the Amy Mebberson-illustrated Disney Princess series, also from Joe Books. Illustrator Barone has worked on several projects for Italian Disney, including Chip 'n' Dale, Disney Fairies, and Disney Palace Pets .

Joe Books previously published a digital Frozen comic strip from Mebberson, which was available only to subscribers. Look for the ongoing Frozen comic book series when it hits stores near you in July.
