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.

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.
