Marvel Comics' editor-in-chief has explained the publisher's lack of Big Hero 6 promotions.

The company has not released any tie-in comics in the run-up to the release of the Disney animation.

Alonso added that Marvel is not currently planning any comics featuring the new characters introduced in the film.

The comic version of the team was created by Steven T »
