DuckTales (2017 TV series)

This summer sees the highly-anticipated return of DuckTales, as Disney once again brings Scrooge McDuck and his troublesome nephews back to the zeitgeist. TV screens won’t be the only place to catch the new animated adventures of these cartoon ducks, however. This July will also see the launch of DuckTales tie-in comics from IDW. Creators have yet to be announced, but the series will have a similar aesthetic to the look of the new TV show, allowing easy crossover for fans.

In addition to DuckTales, IDW will also be kickstarting a Tangled series of comics based on the animated TV show Tangled: The Series. The comic adaptation will begin with an original graphic novel due out in August. Tangled: Adventure Is Calling will feature the continuing adventures of Rapunzel, along with Eugene (the former Flynn Rider), Pascal, Maximus, and their new friend Cassandra.

“We’re extremely excited to expand IDW’s relationship with Disney. There’s a lot of buzz surrounding both of these new animated series and we aim to live up to, and exceed, fan expectations.” IDW editor Sarah Gaydos said in a statement.

Look for these new Disney comics this summer. Check out a preview of DuckTales below.
