I am the terror that flaps in the night.
I am the milk that sogs up your cereal.
I...am DARKWING DUCK!
You better watch out, you bad boys, because Darkwing Duck is back, and setting up shop in comics courtesy of BOOM! Studios. Announced today at BOOM!'s panel at the Emerald City Comic-Con, the Batman-parody character created by Disney as a cartoon in 1991 will have a new limited comic series in 2010. Titled "Darkwing Duck: The Duck Knight Returns," the book will launch in June 2010, written by Ian Brill and drawn by James Silvani.
Darkwing's not the only new announcement from the 6th largest publisher in America, though. "The Amory Wars," the brainchild of rock band Coheed and Cambria's frontman Claudio Sanchez, will be coming to BOOM! Studios for a new 12-issue mini-series. This time around, he'll be helped on the writing side of things by Peter David. "THE AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH: 3 #1" comes out in May with art by Chris Burnham. BOOM! Will also be releasing a hardcover collection of the first to "Amory" series for $29.99, also in May.
"Criminal" artist Sean Phillips will team with writer Fabien Vehlmann on a new "WWII Epic" called "7 Psychopaths." The story will feature a group trying to kill Hitler to end the war, and also starts in May 2010.
