That's Oswald, of course

With the Epic Mickey excitement train picking up new passengers all the time following its impressive showing at E3, the game's designer Warren Spector has just announced a series of comic books to accompany the game.

Named "Tales of the Wasteland", the series will be written by Peter David and will flesh out the game's backstory by revealing what Wasteland was like before the game begins. Released in six parts on paper as well as PlayStation Network and Apple's iTunes Store, there's no word on a digital release for DSiWare or WiiWare, but we'll keep you posted.

There will also be a 64-page graphic novel adaptation of the game itself, so fans of Mickey Mouse and comics should be on Cloud Nine this year.
