After a lengthy hiatus DuckTales returned to comic stands in the form of a miniseries titled “Silence and Science.” Issue #2 of this series will be out in October and Issued #3 should be released sometime in November. Of course this had us wondering what the next miniseries would be, and now we know.
IDW released their December solicitations today and the next DuckTales comic book miniseries is cited to be, drumroll, “Faires and Scares.” The story seems interesting enough based on the description provided in the solicitation. We always love a good Launchpad story. It looks like issue #1 will offer two cover options with a retail incentive for cover B being 1 in 10.
DuckTales: Faires and Scares #1 (of 3)—SPOTLIGHT—Cover A: Marco Ghiglione and Cristina Stella
Steve Behling • Luca Usai and Gianfranco Florio (a) • Marco Ghiglione and Cristina Stella (c)
After successfully charting an uncharted island, Uncle Scrooge, Launchpad, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby head back to McDuck Manor. But the Launchpad that leaves the island with them is different than the one that arrived, and it’s really upsetting Dewey! As Launchpad acts more and more out of character, Dewey is determined to get to the bottom of things before they get too out of hand! Find out if he succeeds in “Will the Real Launchpad Please Stand Up?”
