Teshkeel Media to License Marvel

Marvel Entertainment has entered into a substantial licensing deal for its titles in various formats in the Arabic-language market with Teshkeel, a very well-funded media company operating out of Kuwait less than a year old whose mission statement practically guarantees this kind of partnership would be pursued. Again, the difference between Marvel Now and Marvel Past has been its ability to seek very specific licensing partnerships to the company's advantage, and now it has primary product deals in the Arabic-language and Indian markets. Teshkeel made comics news earlier this year by funding a current attempt to revive Cracked, which along with hints they might be developing their own superhero stuff seems to be the only other deal the company can boast of thus far. They should begin publishing in 2006.
