Looks kind of cool. I'm confused what it's based on though.

@fables87: Not too sure myself but: "Inspired by Disney’s legendary but never constructed Museum of the Weird addition to the Haunted Mansion – and created in conjunction with the world-famous Disney Imagineers"

Looks pretty interesting and since the writer specializes in horror this could be something special.

It sounds like it could be a straight-to-tv movie made for Halloween or something haha, but I like that!

Big fan of Brandon Seifert's work on Witch Doctor. I've been waiting to see him pop up somewhere else. A Disney property is unexpected, but I won't dismiss it. I'll definitely give this a look when it comes out.

It reminds me of another Disney franchise....

I really like the artstyle, it manages to be both distinctly Marvel and distinctly Disney at the same time.

Museum of Weird was the originally planned entrance "Que" line for the Haunted Mansion ride when Walt Disney was alive. After his death, the group in charge felt the idea for MoW was too scary and the plan was scraped for what you have today. Disney actually gave a teaser for this at their D23 expo earlier this year.
