SAN DIEGO, CA (April 27, 2018) – Debuting on Disney Channel on Saturday June 9, Big Hero 6 The Series will usher in new adventures of legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 -- Hiro, Wasabi, Fred, Go Go, Honey Lemon and Baymax -- for viewers. To coincide, IDW will be bringing even more excitement to readers in an all-ages comic book series! The fun kicks off this July with the first issue of an ongoing series.
Protecting San Fransokyo is no easy feat, but Hiro and the team are up to the challenge. “Big Hero 6 The Seriesfeatures an amazing cast of characters. I couldn’t love them more, and I couldn’t be happier to be working on this book,” said Editor Joe Hughes.

The first issue will also feature covers by Gurihiru (Gwenpool) and Sophie Campbell (Jem and the Holograms, TMNT).
