BOOM! CDRR Comics Cancelled - June 5, 2011 by Ducky

In case you missed the forum post, CnDO member Malicia MaCawber has informed us that BOOM! will not continue to publish the Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers comics, ending the series with issue #8.


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.

 

Rescue Rangers #7 Cover A

 

 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.

 

 

BOOM! no longer publishing classic Disney comics? - April 21, 2011 by Ducky

Donald Duck and Friends

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.

Review: Rescue Rangers #1 (via PopMatters) - January 6, 2011 by Ducky

Pop Culture website Popmatters.com has posted a review on the first issue of the new Rescue Rangers comic books. Due to contractual obligations, we cannot post the review in full here, but here’s an excerpt with a link to the full article.

Comments for the author may be posted here or on PopMatters.

Written by Ian Brill, the same man behind the surprisingly good Darkwing Duck comic, and penciled by artist Leonel Castellani, the comic wastes no time in hitting the ground running. Chip ‘N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers catalogues the adventures of Chip, Dale, Gadget, Monterey Jack and Zipper during their quest for a cure to an unknown illness that is causing their fellow animal inhabitants to act a bit wild, in one scene almost turning zombie-like. Interspersed with flashbacks, very apropos, the series also looks to develop the titular Rescue Rangers a bit more as characters than their after school timeslot allowed.


The comic itself is a bit hard to follow at times. Strange cuts and abrupt shifts without the necessary transitions are jarring to say the least. The book opens with a very effective flashback that is later touched on to great effect, but midway through the Rescue Rangers encounter a bit of difficulty in their journey and plummet over a waterfall. This is laced with a quick cut that makes it very unclear if this is a flashback or a flash-forward or perhaps a misprint and this segment was meant to be included earlier in the story.
