Disney Comics News Roundup

Posted on June 27th 2009 in Boom! Studios, News

Here are some Disney comics-related stories and links that I’ve collected this week:

  • On his blog, David Gerstein provides an in-depth account on his experience at Egmont working on the development of Tamers of Nonhuman Threats, a Disney comics series starring Donald Duck and Fethry Duck.
  • Egmont Ehapa Verlag in Germany has launched a new version of their official website for Lustiges Taschenbuch, one of Germany’s most popular comic books. The new website features more news, a gallery and insider information about the publication. Lustiges Taschenbuch is a 250-page pocket book featuring 3-tier Danish and Italian Disney comic stories. It sells about 240,000 copies each month.
  • Duck Comics Revue is a relatively new blog on which the author reviews and analyzes classic Carl Barks stories.
  • Steve Geppi, owner of Gemstone Publishing, the former publisher of Disney comics in the United States, has congratulated Boom! Studios on getting the license for Disney’s standard characters. “While I am of course disappointed that I won’t be the one publishing these great characters anymore, I believe the future for them is still one of untapped potential,” he writes.
  • Boom! Studios released three new issues from their Disney line-up this week. June 24th saw the release of Cars: The Rookie #3, The Incredibles: Family Matters #3 and The Muppet Show #4.
