JY, the children’s imprint of Yen Press, has revealed the cover of Big Hero 6: The Series, Vol. 1, which will go on sale on August 18 with an MSRP of $11.00.

The graphic novel is adapted by newcomer Hong Gyun An from Disney XD animated series of the same name (see “ICv2 Interview: JuYoun Lee of JY”).  The final episode of that series was released in February, but a new series, Baymax, starring the robot from the film and series, is slated to start streaming on Disney + in 2022.

This is Yen Press’s second Big Hero 6 series; the first was a two-volume adaptation of the movie that was published in 2015.  Although the Big Hero 6 team originated in Marvel comics, the last Marvel series to feature them was published in 2008-09; a collected edition followed in 2012.  Joe Books did a one-shot comic in 2017.  IDW Publishing announced a series that was supposed to launch in 2018, but the first issue was delayed until November 2019, and the subsequent two issues appear to have only been released digitally.  The collected edition of that series, Big Hero 6: Technology Is Unbeatable, will be published digitally on July 28.
