Darkwing Duck unseen comic 1

A few years ago I'd talked to some of the folks over at Gemstone about a Darkwing Duck re-imagining that would be more closely tied into the Duck comicverse. There was some interest, but nothing ever became of it (unfortunately!)

A few months ago, I decided to sit down and write a script for a first issue based on what I'd talked about years ago. I started penciling the book in a 4 tier Egmont style. After several pages, I decided that the 4 tier pages weren't suitable for an action-oriented comic like DW, so I scrapped it and started over... working in a more traditional American superhero style.

Anyway, here are scans of a few of those early pencils. And a warning... I plan on posting some of the *final* inked/lettered/colored story right here in a few weeks.

This is amazing. you should keep this up. Especially now that the BOOM Darkwing comics are finished. ^^

So, you're still trying to get this made? If you can be the one who finally ties Darkwing into the main Duck universe I will hail you as a hero.

A few weeks after I posted this, Boom Studios announced that they're doing a Darkwing Duck miniseries that takes place a few years after the animated series.

So the short answer is... no. Not going to happen. :(

My idea was to reboot the whole DW concept -- keeping it tied into the Duck universe of the comics. Boom has decided to continue the animated continuity, so I'm guessing it'll probably remain detached from Duckburg.

I was going to post a fan comic/pitch online, but won't now because of the announcement. (Don't wanna get sued or anything. ;) )

A character with so much potential to be bigger then what he is, and unfortunately, the big gunz don't see this.

I honestly thought they weren't around anymore. Something I heard someone mention online. But regardless, I hope they listen to you and give you a shot on it.

Oh, Gemstone is no longer printing Disney Comics. That license belongs to Boom Studios now. And yes... I'm working on it. ;)

Man, the scenery looks awesome. And do I spy a Gargoyles reference? ;)

Heading on to page 2 and 3!

It is indeed a Gargoyles reference. There's a hidden Mickey in that scene, too. ;)

Will be posting the redrawn final story in a few weeks -- stay tuned!
