The classic Disney Darkwing Duck #1 gets a Facsimile Edition

Disney Darkwing Duck #1

Dynamite‘s delightful deluge of hotly anticipated Disney comic books continues in March with a reprint of the highly sought after first self-titled Darkwing Duck comic with a special facsimile edition.

Featuring the writing and art of John Blair Moore, alongside inker George Wildman, colorist Carl Gafford, and legendary letterer Gaspar Saladino, this release originally came out in 1991. Disney Darkwing Duck #1 was released as part of the then Disney Comics dedicated publishing outfit that launched in 1990.

Darkwing Duck is the terror that flaps in the night — and he’s working overtime to keep the city of St. Canard safe! But if there’s one thing Drake Mallard wants, it’s to face off against a really big villain. Enter Taurus Bulba, an oversized criminal who’s planning to steal the mysterious weapon called the Ramrod from a heavily armed train. Darkwing has one chance to foil Bulba’s plans — and whether his new pal, Launchpad McQuack, will be a help or a hindrance is anyone’s guess.

Now over 30 years later, fans of all ages can get their hands on this hard to track down comic! Like countless other comics featuring the timeless characters and stories from the Disney library, collectors all around the world are after this beloved series. Dynamite is excited to give the chance for it to make its way into the collections of those who have been searching for years, and young fans who have never experienced the adventures of Drake Mallard before.

Disney is coming to Playmobil

Disney

Playmobil has announced that Disney‘s characters will soon be coming to Playmobil 1.2.3.! Six playsets inspired by Disney’s Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet will be launched summer 2023 for fans of all ages.

Each of the Disney playsets includes multiple educational features based on three connected learning stages, that support a child’s individual development. Thus, parents can easily choose the right toy to help improve their toddler’s skills.

Mickey Mouse first appeared to the public in 1928 and is the official symbol of Disney around the world. Mickey is a courageous, clever and mischievous little guy, who uses his wits to solve even the most challenging problems.   He often finds himself on fantastic adventures with his friends, where his humorous, silly and caring side helps him save the day – with him always giving his best effort in any situation. And even when things don’t work out, Mickey’s good intentions always shine through.

Winnie the Pooh was created by A.A. Milne based on a real stuffed animal, that belonged to his son Christopher Robin and has been named after Winnie, a Canadian black bear, that lived at the London Zoo, as well as Pooh, a swan the family met on vacation. Winnie the Pooh lives and plays in the Hundred Acre Wood, where he regularly goes on imaginative and fun adventures with his friends. He does not shy away from new experiences, but instead embraces any opportunity to learn something new about his surroundings, often asks questions, seeks out answers, and thinks about the things he discovers.

The cute Playmobil toy sets inspired by both Disney characters help toddlers explore the world and support them in developing skills needed as a foundation for their future – replicating the curious nature of Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh.

Sorting shapes, stacking blocks, discovering sound effects, counting first numbers, first roleplay and lots of other fun elements: all these features enhance cognitive abilities, fine motor skills, creativity as well as language and social skills – with Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh as role models.
