Disney Comics IDW Solicitations October 2017

Hello Mouseketeers

This month, we have a treasure trove of various titles from a mysterious character emerging on the covers for Duck Tales #2, just who is this strange character ? I’m afraid I can’t tell you, you will have to pick up the comic for yourself in October as this issue resolves around chickens and Vikings.

Next up in Uncle Scrooge, all of the Disney witches from animation to comics have teamed up to take on Scrooge. In Walt Disney Comics and Stories, a childhood favourite of mine is finally coming to America where Donald during a TNT mission goes through a shortcut to get home to Daisy quicker but this will lead to disastrous results.

In the final single issue of the month, we have Finn helping a baby creature get off an Imperial ship in Star Wars Adventures #3. The rest of the month consists of the latest collections for Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge as well as the first trade paperback for the new Duck Tales comics.

These titles will be  available for purchase on Comixology , the official IDW website or at your local comic book store

    Is there a reason they seem to be slimming down the Disney titles at IDW? Hope they aren’t planning on canceling them.

    Anyways, I just found this blog and love it. I’m a huge fan of Disney comics from all over the world, and it’s great to see someone else who enjoys them talking about it. Keep up the great work!

    It is merely printing costs, it has affected a lot of comic book companies. IDW is not ending their contract with Disney, they are merely doing bigger titles like Donald and Mickey at a less regular release pace to have something out until the time is right that they can do more titles at once again.
