Rich Johnston’s Bleeding Cool site is reporting that Hasbro is celebrating Marvel Comic’s aquisituioin of the Marvelman character by selling an exclusive Marvelman figure at the 20910 San Diego ComicCon International:
"Last year [at SDCC], Joe Quesada announced that Marvel had bought the rights to the Marvelman character from Mick Anglo. Last month we discovered Marvel were publishing a number of classic Marvelman strips from the fifties and sixties. And now it seems Hasbro are getting in on the act with a Marvelman toy. And making it a San Diego 2010 Exclusive.
Negotiations over the rights to the Alan Moore/Garry Leach/Alan Davis/Chuck Austen/Rick Vietch/Jon Totleben/Neil Gaiman/Mark Buckingham run on the book from the nineteen eighties have still not been fully nailed down, so the odds are that the character will be based on the original Mick Anglo designs rather than the Garry Leach look."
We’ll keep you posted if/when more info is released…
