One of the biggest comic book stories of the year doesn't come from either Marvel or DC. It comes from BOOM! Studios, who are bringing back one of the biggest childhood icons of my generation.

That's right. Darkwing Duck is BACK!

ECCC: Whack, Smack! "Darkwing Duck" is Back - Comic Book Resources


    He is the terror that flaps in the night. And come June, the Masked Mallard will once again get dangerous in a new four-issue miniseries from BOOM! Studios. Announced Saturday at Emerald City ComiCon, “Darkwing Duck” will be be BOOM!'s latest Disney property to make the jump to comics, courtesy of writer Ian Brill and artist James Silvani. The purple-clad hero's cartoon launched in 1991, spinning out of the popular “Duck Tales” starring Scrooge McDuck and Huey, Dewey, and Luey, and was unusual among Disney series in that it did not feature any “classic” Disney characters. “Darkwing Duck” was a superhero adventure with a strong vein of parody running throughout, as even the hero's catchphrases and soliloquies appeared to comment on themselves. Darkwing, aka Drake Mallard, is the sworn protector of St. Canard, but must balance this great power with the great responsibility of raising his adopted daughter Goslyn. They are joined by sidekick Launchpad McQuack, a carryover from “Duck Tales.” CBR News spoke with writer Ian Brill, who is also an editor at BOOM!, about bringing back the duck.


Does it really get any better than this? Why YES! It actually DOES!


    As to why the time is right for Darkwing's return, Brill said, “BOOM! Studios and BOOM Kids! truly appreciates having access to this treasure vault of Disney characters. Everything the company does is about bringing excitement and wonder to characters in a new way, even if you may have seen them a million times.” Brill noted that, though most Disney series are published through the BOOM Kids! imprint, “Darkwing Duck” will be under the central BOOM! Studios umbrella. “Part of that plan is bringing a property back that is primed to entertain today’s audience. We have a generation who grew up watching 'Darkwing Duck' and then went on to read two decades worth of great comics. I’m part of that generation! So we crafted a book that lives up to the show and also deserves to sit next to today’s superhero comics. It’s going to have more jokes than a regular superhero comic (plus, y’know, characters who are ducks) but the story is told in that same brio as a modern-day superhero genre comic.” Brill said that the miniseries could be followed by more stories if there is enough reader interest.


Meaning that while BOOM! has a kids division, this won't fall under it. They'll not only market this to kids, but it looks like they're primarily aiming this at people like many of us that grew up with the character. And there could be more to come if this takes off.

Not many story details to talk about, other than this officially takes place after the series ended.

Words can't express how stoked I am about this. In June, Darkwing Duck gets dangerous again!

That would be a remake.

This is pure awesome, since Darkwing ended on a cliffhanger. Hopefully we get this in cartoon (2D!) form sooner than later.

I'm not much of a comic book guy so I am not particularly excited about this news. BUT, if this does make it onto the small screen as a 2D cartoon, I will absolutely flip my shit. There's almost no other cartoon I'd love to see more.

Just got it tonight, read it on the train on the way home from work (even the conductor in my LIRR car asked if that was #5 and what happened!).
