Disney’s DuckTales has been making a major comeback in 2017, with a new comic and cartoon show. If you’ve missed out, then you have a treat on the way from IDW.
It’s been pretty tough to ignore the return of DuckTales. Disney, of course, made a pretty big deal out of it, and why wouldn’t they? The original show was a major hit for the Disney Afternoon block of programming back in the 90s, and a return should been touted. I mean, it’s DuckTales after all.
As I mentioned though, the show is one thing, the comic is another. From publisher IDW, the new DuckTales comic book has some big shoes to fill as well. You might not recall, but DuckTales had a pretty popular comic in the past too. Though, this new book certainly seems to be doing a fine job of it. And it’s presented by an all-star team of artists and Eisner-Award nominated comic book creator Joe Caramagna.
“DuckTales is always about race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes,” teasing readers about what he has in store for them, with a nod to the “DuckTales” theme song. “The challenge for readers will be not to hum that tune while they read this series. Woo-oo!”
So what’s all this about a “Treasure Trove”? Well that’s a simple question to answer, as the DuckTales Treasure Trove is a graphic novel meant to catch fans up on the current adventures of Scrooge and co. All-together, is collects issues 1 and 2 of the comic, and adds in a special #0. That issue is set, as you’d expect, before the series started.
The story here is told by Huey, Dewey, and Louie, which is actually pretty unique for the property. The subject is likewise pretty fresh- it’s the story about how the trio got to meet and go on adventures with their elderly uncle.
Sounds like a Tale that fans shouldn’t miss out on.
