UPDATE: The Darkwing Duck omnibus will not include the BOOM! Studios DuckTales/Darkwing Duck crossover. The omnibus will also lead into an all-new Darkwing Duck comic series from Joe Books in 2015. Stay tuned for more information!
Disney Afternerds rejoice! Darkwing Duck is back in comics this January 15, 2015 from new publisher Joe Books in an all-new omnibus collecting all 400+ pages from the original BOOM! Studios comics that ended just a few years ago. DW comic mastermind Aaron Sparrow tweeted the fooling tweet about this exciting news:
In an up-date from our previous story on new Disney Afternoon DVD’s sold at Canadian Wal-Marts, we’ve been made aware that these same titles have been spotted in US Wal-Mart stores now as well. Again, these titles were previous Disney Movie Club Exclusives and are still being listed on Amazon.com as coming out in January 2015, so these early releases are pure Wal-Mart Exclusives for right now outside of the ability to still purchase the titles in question from the Disney Movie Club still before the wider release in a few months. The titles in question once again are DuckTales: The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, Gargoyles: Season 2, Volume 2, Goof Troop: Volume One & Goof Troop: Volume Two, TaleSpin: Volume Three and finally Have Yourselves A Goofy Little Christmas. A big thanks to Disney Afternerd Kyle for the heads-up!
In an interesting turn of events, the up-coming Disney Afternoon titles that were originally Disney Movie Club Exclusives, but are set to be released the first of next year, have made their first appearances early. Spotted at a Canadian Walt-Mart this last weekend were DuckTales: The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, Gargoyles: Season 2, Volume 2, Goof Troop: Volume One & Goof Troop: Volume Two, TaleSpin: Volume Three and finally Have Yourselves A Goofy Little Christmas.
