Philadelphia - Marvel Comics and Disney 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's 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.

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