(AP) Marvel Comics and Disney said Tuesday they will publish a comic book inspired by Disneyland's fabled but never built Museum of the Weird as the first title under its "Disney Kingdoms" banner.


The five-issue miniseries titled "Seekers of the Weird" will go on sale in January and is written by Brandon Seifert and illustrated by Karl Moline.


Disney designer Rolly Crump created the museum in 1965 as a walk-through attraction filled with mystical and magical curiosities from around the world that was to be connected to the Haunted Mansion.


After Walt Disney died, the designs remained on the drawing board.


The story centers on teens Maxwell and Melody who must find their kidnapped parents by making their way through the museum with their uncle in tow, facing off against a shadowy and evil secret society.


The Walt Disney Co. acquired Marvel for $4.2 billion in 2009.
