Hot on the heels of their Darkwing Duck announcement, BOOM! announced this week that another Disney Afternoon cartoon is making its return. Uncle Scrooge #392 will kick off a four-issue arc featuring the DuckTales cast — Uncle Scrooge, of course, as well as Lauchpad McQuack, Gizmoduck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
“DuckTales is one of the most beloved television shows of the ‘90s,” said BOOM Kids! editor Aaron Sparrow in a press release. “It’s just spectacular to be bringing it back for a whole new generation to discover and enjoy!”
The premiere of DuckTales in Uncle Scrooge #392 will appear on store shelves the same month as BOOM!’s new Darkwing Duck mini-series. The first DuckTales arc includes scripts by veteran Disney writers Paul Halas, Tom Anderson, Didier le Bornec, Chris Weber, Karen Willson, Doug Murray and Régis Maine with art by Xavier Vives Mateu, José Maria Carreras, Roberto Santillo, Cosme Quartieri, Wanda Gattino, and José Cardona Blasi. The stories aren’t actually new, but will include material produced for Europe that was never published in the United States, as well as some stories published overe here back when the show was on the air.
The popular DuckTales show ran from 1987-1990. There was also a spin-off movie,DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and two spin-off TV shows, Quack Pack and the previously mentioned Darkwing Duck.
