Arcane’s Rescue Rangers Graphic Novel on the CnDO Network
The comic is linked to our forums for easily discussion and interaction with the author/artist. If you aren’t already familiar with Arcane’s work, I strongly encourage you to check it out.
Final Issue of Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers Coming Soon
Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers #8 will be the last issue in the comic series by Kaboom! Studios (aka Boom! Studios for kids). Here’s the summary currently displayed on Kaboom’s catalog page:
This is a sad day for Rescue Rangers fans, who had been treated to their first taste of fresh original official CDRR content since the TV series was cancelled back in the early 90s.
The only mention of this on the BOOM! studios website is in the forums, where a subscriber asked why CDRR was absent from the titles scheduled to be shipping in August 2011. The reason given was that issue #8 was to be the last issue “for the time being,” and that there were no plans to continue the series. There has yet to be an official announcement explaining why the series was cancelled; all we know is that it will be replaced by the DuckTales comic in their publishing schedule.
In other news, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers issue #7 is now available… better pick it up while you still can, before the CDRR comics are out of print.
According to the UK entertainment website Digital Spy, BOOM! Studios may no longer be publishing comics based on classic Disney licenses such as Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Uncle Scrooge.
A listing of upcoming issues in the Diamond Comic Distributors Previews catalog for July suggests that BOOM! will continue to publish other Disney titles such as Darkwing Duck and Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers.
So far these are unconfirmed rumors. BOOM! Studios has yet to confirm or comment on this, and so far there is no mention in their official blog of the classic Disney series disappearing.
BOOM! Studios is pushing them out faster than we can keep up! The new comic book series is already up to issue #05, and it looks like the Rescue Rangers are finding themselves tied up again (bad news for Rangers fan JEANYLASER!)
