Boom!’s Disney Licenses in Trouble? April 19, 2011Posted by John D. Moore in Comics News.
Though Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and DuckTales are in July’s comic previews, Boom! has not listed the classic books, Uncle Scrooge, Walt Disney’s Comic and Stories, Mickey Mouse and Friends, and Donald Duck are missing from the roster. Whether this is a mistake, or Disney has reclaimed the license, or the books are being cancelled, we can’t be sure, though some sites are speculating that Disney may be preparing to hand the titles over to their own Marvel Studios. No one seems to know anything definitively yet, and whether the end of the classic books at Boom! will necessarily impact the fate of the Disney Afternoon titles. I sent an email to Boom!’s press agent, Chip Mosher, asking for clarification, but as is the nature of these dealings, he probably won’t be able to tell me whether anything is happening.
More on this if and when anything develops.
Update: The word from Mr. Chip Mosher is officially “no comment” at this time. If any news comes to light, this blog will have it.
