Boom! Studios and Disney are heralding the triumphant comeback the the beloved Disney Afternoon star with Darkwing Duck: The Duck Knight Returns. Joining Darkwing will be Launchpad McQuack, Gosalyn Mallard and the fiercest of Darkwing's rogue's gallery. They can all be seen in an all-new completely original four-issue miniseries.
The series will be written by Ian Brill ( Zombie Tales) and James Silvani ( Muppet King Arthur). The miniseries will see Darkwing's city of St. Canard under the control of a mysterious corporation. Darwing's been out of the game for a while but when his friends and family are under attack...you better watch out! Darkwing will fight new villains as well as old ones. You can expect to see Megavolt, Quackerjack, Liquidator and Bushroot on the loose.
Darkwing Duck made his debut in 1991 (after my afternoon cartoon watching days unfortunately) and was a spin-off from the hugely popular Duck Tales series (which I did watch). Whether you're a fan from the hit TV show or want to discover this cherished character for the first time, the new miniseries will deliver the madcap adventurous spirit that made fans out of millions. Stay tuned for more information in regards to the release date.
“It’s such a dream to bring back Darkwing, a favorite of mine and millions of other’s,” says series writer Brill. “Everyone involved in this book are working tirelessly to make sure this comic has the same feel of anarchic fun of the TV series, while still presenting a whole new adventure in the life of Darkwing.”
