IDW Publishing, in conjunction with Disney Publishing, is bringing Scrooge McDuck and his young triplet great-nephews Huey, Dewey, Louie, plus Webby, back in a cleverly written, comic book series to coincide with Disney XD’s new animated comedy adventure series “DuckTales” debuting Saturday, September 23 with two new back-to-back episodes (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m., EDT).
DuckTales: Treasure Trove collects issues #1 and #2, as well as the special introductory issue #0 from IDW’s ongoing series, set prior to the series opener. In fact, today marks the 30th Anniversary of the television debut of “DuckTales”!
DuckTales: Treasure Trove is told from the vantage point of Scrooge McDuck’s young companions as they prepare to meet their wealthy great-uncle for the first time. Written by Eisner-Award nominated comic book creator Joe Caramagna and illustrated by a passel of Italy’s finest Disney artists, this title is set to bring you a mix of vibrant new Duckburg short stories set in the world of the animated series.
Caramagna says “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!”
