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.
Coming soon from BOOM! Studios…
Availability: Not yet released.

No crimes go slipping through the cracks in this issue of RESCUE RANGERS! A rich businessmouse begs for help tracking down his kidnapped daughter, but Chip ‘n’ Dale smell a rat. Actually, they smell a bunch of rats! And when NINJA PORCUPINES join the mix, things can’t get any worse for everybody’s favorite furry flatfoots! Another not-to-be-missed issue written by DARKWING DUCK’s Ian Brill and MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD’s Leonel Castellani!
Wow, Ninja Porcupines! How will the Rangers ever escape? Oh, by the way, is it just me, or does Cover A look a little like something from the Chipmunk Adventure?
Maybe it’s just me…

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.
