SDCC News:  Dynamite Entertainment has signed a deal with Disney to publish new original Darkwing Duck comics as well as collected and facsimile editions of older series. No creative team was announced for the new series, which will launch in early 2023. Dynamite also announced that it will reprint the four-issue miniseries originally published by Disney Classics in 1991.

Darkwing Duck started out as an animated television series in 1991 and ran for 91 episodes in 1991-1992. In 2020 it was reported that a reboot of the series was in the early stages at Disney+ (see “‘Darkwing Duck’ Reboot”).

BOOM! Studios published the first Darkwing Duck comics of this century; they announced it as a four-issue miniseries, but before the first issue was released they announced it would be an ongoing series, based on fan response (see “‘Darkwing Duck’ Gets Extended”). BOOM! lost the license the following year, along with its other Disney licenses (see “Trouble in Duckburg”). Joe Books began publishing Darkwing Duck comics in 2016 (see “‘Darkwing Duck’ Returns to Comics”), and that series ran for eight issues.
