Because the companies that “announced” the musical on Friday, IDW and Topps, provided the graphic above themselves. Thanks, guys. An April Fool’s Day joke that was not issued on April Fool’s Day, but two days before it. That’s not how that works. After the jump, a much better April Fool’s Day joke that arrived on time and has unicorns in it.

Maybe I’ll change my mind about this by the end of the post.
