Marvel-Inspired Pet Toys, Apparel and Accessories to Debut Exclusively at PetSmart®

Marvel Entertainment, LLC

Through a new licensing agreement with Fetch…for cool pets!, a unique line of Marvel Super Hero inspired pet toys, apparel and accessories will be unleashed at PetSmart®, the largest pet specialty retailer, beginning this week.

The line will feature a wide array of Marvel-themed pet products for dogs including toys and apparel.

“Marvel Super Heroes are a family affair and therefore, should include the family pet,” said Jamie Kampel, Director of Licensing, Marvel Entertainment. “As we continue to look to expand the presence of the Marvel brand to new product and retail venues, the pet category is a natural extension. Fetch has developed a truly unique line, and having PetSmart on board as our premiere retail partner will enable us to make a huge statement for the Marvel brand in the pet category.”

Steven Shweky, President of Fetch…for cool pets! added, "Fetch is approaching licensing from a different direction. Instead of using brands that would typically only appeal to children, Fetch has licensed brands that resonate with the ‘pet parent.’ Marvel is the perfect brand to reflect our approach.”

A DYNAMITE.COM EXCLUSIVE! ROBERT NAPTON INTERVIEWS FRANK BARBIERE ABOUT SOLAR!

Source: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
Robert Napton - Frank, there have been different iterations of Solar, starting with the classic Gold Key character.  What elements did you decide to focus on in your reboot of the series?

Frank Barbiere - We really wanted to hone in on the way that such an immense power set would affect a pretty mild-mannered scientist.  I really wanted to increase the lens on that though, to think how this change would affect not only Phil, but his family as well.  I love the feel and aesthetic of a lot of the classic Solar stories, and I really wanted to infuse our take with those as well.

Robert Napton - Family and the impact of Solar's transformation is a key theme to your new take.  How did you arrive at that?

Frank Barbiere - I really thought that Solar had been a very insular character and story in most of its inceptions.  I wanted to open up the scope of it, to see how his change would affect a family unit, rather than just Phil.  I think family conflict is very relatable as well, and goes a long way to humanizing a character who has near limitless power and brings the story down to a more personal level.

Robert Napton - Lots of Science Fiction action -- what can you tell us about the setting of this new series?

Frank Barbiere - We're definitely starting a bit more grounded, but the story will be opening up to a lot of bigger, sci-fi locales.  Part of the fun of having a character like Solar is the fact that we can take it to places that a lot of other superhero stories can't go--and definitely no one else in the current Gold Key universe.  It has a lot of great potential for fun and exciting stories.

Robert Napton - I like that the design is very much the classic Solar.  Why did you and Joe Bennett decide to keep Solar iconic?

Frank Barbiere - With Phil, (our male Solar), we wanted readers to be able to jump right in and recognize him.  He's the big aesthetic of the story, the icon, and we didn't want to mess with that--at least upfront.  We've revealed that we will have a new character taking the mantle of Solar, and that's a big change, but we wanted to keep the costume iconic and keep the aesthetic of the original series.

Robert Napton - Perhaps this is too serious a question, but Solar is born of a nuclear crisis in the original story.  In the 60s this was very much on people's minds.  Post Fukushima, nuclear meltdowns are a very real and scary proposition.  Do current events inform a modern take on this character?

Frank Barbiere - Definitely.  We live in a very different landscape, and nuclear power has a lot of new problems and stories attached to it.  We very much do want the story to reflect the real world in that nature--and not to make light of the dangerous times we live in, but it almost re-ignites that interest…as with the 60's, this was all new territory, and now we know the all too real dangers.

Robert Napton - Anything else you'd like to tell the fans about this new reboot?

Frank Barbiere - We're taking a whole new approach to Solar and really want to bring as many people as we can on board.  We're excited and thrilled to be working with such an iconic character, and I think readers are going to be very pleased with the new direction we take things in!
