‘Darkwing Duck’ Returns In Comic Form With New Miniseries

If you’re like me, you have fond memories of running home from school, flying into the house, and landing on your favorite spot in front of the TV to watch the Disney Afternoon. What a wonderful block of programming that was in the early 1990s.

At the time I was a huge superhero fan and the show that stuck out to me from the moment it debuted was Darkwing Duck. I loved everything about the show as a kid and still keep the theme song on my iPod at all times, just in case I need a pick-me-up.

Imagine my delight when BOOM! Studios announced yesterday that they’re bringing us all back to those weekday afternoons spent in front of the TV. The only difference is that this time we will be enjoying the Masked Mallard’s adventures in comic form.

Writer Ian Brill (Zombie Tales) and artist James Silvani (Muppet King Arthur) will be bringing us a four issue mini-series this June titled Darkwing Duck: The Duck Night Returns. We’ll see the return of Darkwing Duck, Lanchpad McQuack, Gosalyn Mallard, and the fiercest of Darkwing’s rogue gallery.

According to BOOM!, the mini-series sees Darkwing’s city of St. Canard under the control of a mysterious corporation. Darkwing’s been out of commission for a while but when his friends and family are under attack, he jumps back into action, fighting new villains as well as old (Megavolt, Quackerjack, Liquidator, and Bushroot).

I know you all can’t wait to get dangerous with DW, but we have a few months to go before we get our hands on this new miniseries. In the meantime, here’s the intro to the animated series to hold you over until June.
