June 22, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite announces the return of Darkwing Duck to comics coming shortly, with new series, graphic novels, and reprints.
The classic series is coming back to the comics page, with a new title starring the heroic Drake Mallard coming at the beginning of 2023. In addition to all-new original tales, his classic adventures will be reprinted as well in facsimile editions and graphic novels. The hard to find 1991 limited series released by Disney Comics with contributions by John Blair Moore and others will soon be accessible again to fans and collectors of classic Disney comics.
Darkwing Duck is part of Disney's beloved wider Donald Duck library and first debuted as a hit animated television show in 1991. Across 91 episodes, fans young and old were delighted by the adventures of Drake Mallard and his titular superhero identity. Along with fan-favorite comic books, a series of video games and merchandise accompanied the show.
More information on release timing, creators involved, and more Disney properties from Dynamite will be announced soon.
