Yes, Marvel is a huge comics publisher more than capable of making its own comic books aimed at younger kids. Hell, they have a good bunch of them going right now! But a new deal between Disney and IDW Publishing is not the first time the House of Mouse has looked beyond Marvel to target younger comic readers.

IDW's Star Trek comics have already played host to some zany pop-culture crossovers, from Doctor Who to the Green Lantern Corps, to, err, Planet of the Apes. But the latest crossover is seeing the original Trek crew meet the Transformers in a very fun way.
Jaxxon the Lepi smuggler is one of the most infamous excesses of the old Star Wars expanded universe - the rabbit in Flash Gordon cosplay that was bound to come up whenever you mentioned the weirdness of the EU. For decades, he's been the butt of fan jokes... but now he's officially back in the canon. He's still kinda the butt of the joke, though.
Even though playing games is typically how Rick and Morty end up putting the multiverse in jeopardy, the dimension-hopping duo are about to embark upon the journey of their lives with the help of a tabletop classic. This August, IDW and Oni Press are partnering to publish a four-issue limited series from writers Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub, with illustrations from Troy Little, where Rick and Morty will get sucked into the world of Dungeons & Dragons.
The third volume of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic, published in the mid-'90s, has a weird history. Now considered non-canonical by the Mirage Comics run of classic Turtles books, the dark series came to an untimely end when it was cancelled before a conclusion could be written.

This week saw the launch of IDW and Disney's brand new DuckTales comic, based on the newly-returned -- and utterly fantastic -- animated series.

The Klingons of Star Trek have a long, storied history of having their long, storied history explored and evolved every time we see them. Star Trek: Discovery's take on them is no different, but these new Klingons have been shrouded in mystery. Until now, that is, thanks to the new Discovery comic.
At Star Wars Celebration this year, IDW announced Star Wars Adventures, a new all-ages take on the galaxy far, far away, distinct from Marvel's Star Wars comic book offerings. That distinction is continuing with a new, stylised take on The Force Awakens, and we have a new look inside.
The sequel to Jack Black's 2015 Goosebumps flick is set to take a journey to Horrorland, the creepy amusement park from R.L. Stine's iconic children's book franchise. So, it should come as no surprise that the first Goosebumps comic book is also taking us to the little park of horrors.
The 2017 San Diego Comic-Con is a little over a week away, which means toymakers are running out of time to hype their convention exclusives. Most should probably just give up now, though, because Hasbro's latest Comic-Con exclusive reveal is essentially irresistible '80s nerd catnip.
