BOOM Kids! brings back DuckTales

Posted by Arthur in Boom! Studios, United States

Just a few days ago BOOM Kids! announced the launch of a new Darkwing Duck series in June. Today we learned that this same month will see the return of another classic Disney TV show to comic books in the USA. Starting with issue #392, the Uncle Scrooge series will feature four issues of DuckTales stories.

The kick-off issue will contain the 1991 Danish story The Everlasting Coal (written by Paul Halas and Tom Anderson with art by Xavier Vives Mateu) and a reprint of The Littlest Gizmoduck from 1990 (art by Roberto Santillo), which was originally created for Disney Adventures.

“DuckTales is one of the most beloved television shows of the ’90s,” said BOOM Kids! editor Aaron Sparrow. “It’s just spectacular to be bringing it back for a whole new generation to discover and enjoy!”

Uncle Scrooge #392 will have two different covers. The one shown here is with art by Dutch artist Michel Nadorp.
