‘Duck Tales’ Returns to Comics Via Boom! Studios
On its seemingly ceaseless quest to reignite the early ’90s Disney Afternoon programming block in comics (which, it should be noted, I support 100 percent), Boom! Studios has announced the return of “Duck Tales” in its “Uncle Scrooge” line beginning this June in issue #392.
According to Boom! Kids’ official press release, the issue will kick off a 4-issue storyline entitled “Like a Hurricane,” sporting backups galore. Here’s the official rundown of the creators involved (there are many):
The first Duck Tales arc starting in UNCLE SCROOGE #392 includes scripts by veteran Disney writers Paul Halas, Tom Anderson, Didier le Bornec, Chris Weber, Karen Willson, Doug Murray and Régis Maine with outstanding art by modern masters Xavier Vives Mateu, José Maria Carreras, Roberto Santillo, Cosme Quartieri, Wanda Gattino, and José Cardona Blasi.
Did I mention the backup in #392 is called “The Littlest Gizmoduck?”
Too stoked to think properly…If anybody needs me I’ll be playing Capcom’s “Duck Tales” games on the NES the rest of the day.
