When the hit Disney Afternoon show Ducktales made a splash with its all-new ongoing comic book series, no one knew quite how successful it could be. Written by Warren Spector, the creator of the Epic Mickey video game, and illustrated by the fan-favorite Disney duck artist Miquel Pujol, this was the latest revival in what was being called the “Disney Afternoon Revolution.” The story slots in with the new continuity created by Boom! Studios, which also features Darkwing Duck and, ultimately, has been such a hit with readers that the first printing has sold out. But fear not, Duck-fans, as Boom! is eager to let you know that more is on the way.
