New from BOOM! Studios this week, DuckTales, vol. 1: Rightful Owners is a wild ride in the Disney Afternoon tradition. Written by Warren Spector (creator of the Epic Mickey game) and illustrated by Leonel Castellani, it stands on its own but also shares continuity with Disney’s Darkwing Duck books (also published by BOOM!). The first trade paperback came out on Wednesday; check out this preview to see what all the excitement is about.
