ITEM! DARKWING DUCK RETURNS TO COMICS
Comic Book Resources reports that Darkwing Duck will be returning to comics in 2015 published by Toronto-based Joe Books after the release of an omnibus containing the previous series published by BOOM! Studios. Darkwing Duck: the Definitely Dangerous Edition will be released in January and will feature some revised content, including continuity tweaks to tie it into the animated series better and some new artwork by series artist James Silvan.
