Marvel Gets A Tsum Tsum Takeover In August!

You may have resisted up until now. But if you haven’t seen the explosive popularity of stackable Tsum Tsums over the past few months, you haven’t been paying attention. They’re cute. They’re cuddly. And like all things when adapting Venom to a childrens’ toy, maybe a little bit disturbing, as in the Deadpool cover below. Marvel already announced a mini-series bringing Tsum Tsums into continuity (it does make sense that they’re destined for The Collector); might as well let them take over every book in August. Because that’s what happens with Tsum Tsums… you buy one or two, and then suddenly they’re all over your room.

From Marvel:
