The announcement comes complete with this cute graphic:

This earlier statement also from Marvel.com makes clear that Marvel is about to become "a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney".

The possibilities and pitfalls of the purchase has been gone over and over and over. So suffice it to say 2o1o will be a very interesting year for Marvel Comics and the comic-book industry as a whole.
