Some of you may remember when we hinted that Boom! Studios might land the rest of the Disney lineup when the Gemstone deal ended, and Boom! was having much success with the Cars, Incredibles, and The Muppet Show Comic Book titles.  Over the weekend it was confirmed that Boom! would indeed begin running the Disney titles this September.

    Eh. No anthologies, no USA, no sale.

    Who is this designed for, anyway? Were there that many people waiting for English translations of Italian anything-but-Ducks-and-Topolino?

    BTW, “USA” = “Uncle Scrooge Adventures”. Just in case anyone thought I was dissing the books for having Euro creators…

    ykw: those are just the first two titles being released. From the original source, you can expect to see the Duck books follow.
