Darkwing Duck’s creative team revealed!

Dynamite Entertainment is kicking off 2023 with a bang, debuting all-new stories of Disney’s Darkwing Duck in January. Let’s get dangerous!

He is the terror that flaps in the night… He is the ferocious fowl who plucks the evil eye from the face of foul play. He is Darkwing Duck! By night he vigilantly defends his city of St. Canard from the dastardly, devilish demons who would wage wanton war with his trademark costume and gadgets, and lurks through the shadows, striking fear in the heart of the criminal underworld. By day he’s known as the mild-mannered Drake Mallard, father to his adorable adopted daughter Gosalyn. Can Darkwing successfully juggle his two separate lives, all while looking incredibly cool and impossibly handsome? Readers will have to tune in on January 4 to find out!

Popular writer Amanda Deibert will write the latest escapades of everyone’s favorite fowl. Deibert has a range of diverse experience as a writer for television, animation, and comics, including Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Wonder Woman, Star Wars, DC Super Hero Girls, and more.

Deibert is joined by Italian artist Carlo Cid Lauro, a member of superstar Mirka Andolfo’s acclaimed Arancia Studio. Lauro will be coloring the series himself, with Jeff Eckleberry handling the lettering.

The first story, subtitled “F.O.W.L. Play” kicks off a showdown between Darkwing and his dastardly arch nemesis Megavolt. He’s taken out everyone’s phones, which is a pretty cataclysmic outcome for the citizens of St. Canard. Alongside his ally Launchpad McQuack and some unexpected help from Gosalyn, the squad will take on Megavolt. But the latest escapade makes Mallard question the entire superhero business and consider retiring. How long can he go without meting out justice?

Darkwing Duck #1 will feature a range of stunning covers for collectors and fans. David Nakayama, Mirka Andolfo, and Lesley “Leirix” Li all bring their superstar magic to the party. Beloved illustrators and cartoonists Jacob Edgar and Trish Forstner are a perfect match to bring the character to life. While George Kambadais checks in from illustrating Dynamite’s hit Gargoyles title to contribute to its companion. Last but certainly not least, Carlo Lauro does a cover to match his interiors in the series too.

Alongside Darkwing Duck, Launchpad McQuack, and Gosalyn, fans will get to see countless favorite characters in the series. Tune in for possible appearances by Morgana Macawber, Bushroot, Dr. Nogood, and more!

Let’s Get Dangerous with these Darkwing Duck covers!

The debonair Drake Mallard, aka Disney’s Darkwing Duck, is swooping back into comics to ring in the new year. Ahead of the anxiously awaited debut, Dynamite Entertainment has revealed the covers for the first issue!

First teased alongside Dynamite’s other initial Disney series Gargoyles at San Diego Comic Con, fans have been at the ready for more info on the new Darkwing Duck project. More details on the creative team and story are right around the corner, but Dynamite wants to highlight the talented artists who will be gracing the covers of the book.

Superstar artist David Nakayama is back leading the pack, depicting the defender of St. Canard striking a heroic pose. Humorously, the fan-favorite fowl is perched atop a gargoyle – presumably the kind that doesn’t come alive at night. David’s signature style perfectly straddles the line between what fans expect at the top of comics art today and stylings of classic cartoons. With prolific contributions to Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line, which often evokes the beloved animated shows of previous eras, Nakayama is the perfect pick for Darkwing as well.

International sensation Mirka Andolfo is beloved for her hit creations Unnatural, Sweet Paprika, and contributions to huge franchises like Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, Red Sonja, and much more. Disney’s classics are of course beloved across the world, and particularly their Duck comics and others have long held a major presence in Andolfo’s native Italy and throughout Europe. Her cover portrays our hero cloaked up, ready for whatever the night presents him.

Fans have grown to love Lesley “Leirix” Li for her gorgeous cover work on so many titles. She’s often known for the way she captures powerful and beautiful women. Yet her talent knows no bounds, as fans will be excited to see an equally impressive take on Darkwing Duck from her hands. With a billowing cape and grappling hook in action, Mr. Mallard is ready for action.

A trio of additional covers really capture the spirit of the original show and its visual style. Trish Forstner, known for the smash hit series Stray Dogs and countless contributions to franchises like My Little Pony and Transformers, steps up with a jaw dropping cover that looks nearly ripped straight from the show! Artist Jacob Edgar has wowed fans with each project he’s done, from the horror comedy romp Death to the Army of Darkness to The Ones with Brian Michael Bendis. His clean, cartoony lines capture the fun of comics and animation. Mirka Andolfo’s studio mate Carlo Lauro rounds out the cast on this initial salvo of covers.

James Harren Variant Covers Revealed fro Kroma by Lorenzo De Felici #1

Skybound has revealed an exciting variant cover lineup for Kroma by Lorenzo De Felici #1, the debut issue of the new prestige comic book series being written, drawn, and colored by superstar creator Lorenzo De Felici. Kroma by Lorenzo De Felici #1 promises to take readers on a breathtaking adventure like none other, filled with strange creatures and unparalleled beauty, and will arrive in comic book shops November 2, 2022. 

The Kroma #1 variant lineup is headlined by two striking covers by acclaimed multihyphenate creator James Harren.

However, where her people see a monster, the mysterious orphan Zet sees a human. But if either of them are to survive the city’s strange rituals and customs, they will have to overcome the cruel fate of Kroma…even if it means risking certain death beyond the walls in the jaws of giant lizards and enormous birds of prey.

Cyberpunk and Dark Magic collide in Hexware

Tim Seeley and Zulema Scotto Lavina join forces for the forthcoming Hexware. This futuristic six issue miniseries is set to launch in December from Image Comics, in cooperation with the Italian media company and creative atelier Arancia Studio—house of Mirka Andolfo’s bestselling Image titles, other international books, and IP.

Hexware is a thrilling new story—with an anime flair—where Cyberpunk 2077 gets drenched in the supernatural and goes full-throttle Devil May Cry.

In a corporate-ruled world where class inequality is greater than ever, a desperate, lonely populace is drawn to neo-spiritualism and hedge magic. When her teenage daughter is murdered, the Marks family is left asking the gods what they did to deserve this. But their android maid, Which-Where, has a different approach. Perhaps if she asked the Devil…

Hexware #1 will be available on Wednesday, December 7 at comic book shops, with a cover illustrated by Lavina, a variant cover illustrated by Seeley, and a special variant cover from fan-favorite artist Mirka Andolfo.

Hexware #1 will also be available and across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play:
