After the exceptional success of Disney and BOOM! Studios’ Darkwing Duck comic book series, it was announced today that another old Disney Afternoon cartoon is returning in comic form: Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers.
The new ongoing series will debut December 2010 from Darkwing Duck writer Ian Brill and Marvel Superhero Squad artist Leonel Castellani as they take the diminutive detectives on all new original adventure.
BOOM! Studios reminds us that this is the only comic book series coming out that will have you singing that song you can never forget: “Sometimes some crimes go slipping through the cracks. But these two Gumshoes are picking up the slack. There’s no case too big, no case too small, when you need help just call —Ch-ch-ch-Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers!”
“After the overwhelming success we’ve had bringing Darkwing Duck back, BOOM! knew it was time to continue the excitement and imagination of the Disney Afternoon revolution in comic book form ,” said Darkwing Duck writer Ian Brill. “It’s an honor to continue the adventures of Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers for both the generation of fans that enjoyed the show the first time and for a whole new generation of comic book fans!”
Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers first debuted as a TV cartoon in 1989 as part of the Disney Afternoon animation block. It will return as a comic book with a debut issue that features two covers in a 50/50 split by Leonel Castellani and Magic Eye Studios respectively and a 1-in-10 incentive cover by Jake Myler.
