Of course we can! Listen, it’s 2021 and how many projects get going after fan campaigns on social media. I don’t understand how we got half way through September without more Darkwing Duck merch or projects announced, but it’s a shame for sure. We know from this sites own ability to see when people use our links that you all are excited for the Q-fig, the Funkoverse Expansion, the pins, and the upcoming figures.
We know Joe Books lost the license, and we know IDW’s Disney books are no longer available on digital sites. So now seems like the perfect time for a publisher to come in and begin new stories (or continue the previous run, which is honestly our hope). Now is the time for Darkwing fans to make it known to Disney that we don’t want them to sit on the license. We are more than willing to buy a monthly book continuing tales of the “Masked Mallard!”
I still remember when I first heard about Joe Book’s Darkwing series. It got me back into a comic book store for the first time in years. I had no idea who Joe Books was (and neither did the store owner), but I knew I had to read this comic. Then, I found out about the previous series and the Definitively Dangerous Edition. My fandom for the character grew exponentially as I read these stories and remembered how much fun it was to get new DW stories.
We are currently working on some ideas to get some things rolling. We KNOW there are fans out there who would be willing to support a new comic. But we need your help. Please follow us on Twitter and get ready to share your love for DW with your fellow fans. We want Disney to notice us, and our appreciation for a great character.
What are your thoughts? We are currently reaching out to the various reaches of the Darkwing fandom looking for support. If we are going to see anything happen, I think we need to make our voices heard.
