So what’s Darkwing Duck #1 about?

He is the terror that flaps in the night… He is the ferocious fowl who plucks the evil eye from the face of foul play. He is Darkwing Duck! By night he vigilantly defends his city of St. Canard from the dastardly, devilish demons who would wage wanton war with his trademark costume and gadgets, and lurks through the shadows, striking fear in the heart of the criminal underworld.

By day he’s known as the mild-mannered Drake Mallard, father to his adorable adopted daughter Gosalyn. Can Darkwing successfully juggle his two separate lives, all while looking incredibly cool and impossibly handsome? Readers will have to tune in on January 4 to find out!

Check out covers and interior pages below. Cover artists include David Nakayama, Mirka Andolfo, and Lesley “Leirix” Li, Jacob Edgar and Trish Forstner, George Kambadais, and Carlo Lauro.

October 20, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment is kicking off 2023 with a bang, debuting all-new stories of Disney’s Darkwing Duck in January. Let’s get dangerous!

He is the terror that flaps in the night… He is the ferocious fowl who plucks the evil eye from the face of foul play. He is Darkwing Duck! By night he vigilantly defends his city of St. Canard from the dastardly, devilish demons who would wage wanton war with his trademark costume and gadgets, and lurks through the shadows, striking fear in the heart of the criminal underworld. By day he’s known as the mild-mannered Drake Mallard, father to his adorable adopted daughter Gosalyn. Can Darkwing successfully juggle his two separate lives, all while looking incredibly cool and impossibly handsome? Readers will have to tune in on January 4 to find out!

Popular writer Amanda Deibert will write the latest escapades of everyone’s favorite fowl. Deibert has a range of diverse experience as a writer for television, animation, and comics, including Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Wonder Woman, Star Wars, DC Super Hero Girls, and more. “Darkwing Duck was huge when I was a kid, and I am thrilled to help introduce the fun, humor, and action-packed mystery to a new generation!,” said writer Amanda Deibert. “Let’s get Dangerous!”

Deibert is joined by Italian artist Carlo Cid Lauro, a member of superstar Mirka Andolfo’s acclaimed Arancia Studio. Lauro will be coloring the series himself, with Jeff Eckleberry handling the lettering.  
The first story, subtitled “F.O.W.L. Play” kicks off a showdown between Darkwing and his dastardly arch nemesis Megavolt. He’s taken out everyone’s phones, which is a pretty cataclysmic outcome for the citizens of St. Canard. Alongside his ally Launchpad McQuack and some unexpected help from Gosalyn, the squad will take on Megavolt. But the latest escapade makes Mallard question the entire superhero business and consider retiring. How long can he go without meting out justice?

Darkwing Duck #1 will feature a range of stunning covers for collectors and fans. David Nakayama, Mirka Andolfo, and Lesley “Leirix” Li all bring their superstar magic to the party. Beloved illustrators and cartoonists Jacob Edgar and Trish Forstner are a perfect match to bring the character to life. While George Kambadais checks in from illustrating Dynamite’s hit Gargoyles title to contribute to its companion. Last but certainly not least, Carlo Lauro does a cover to match his interiors in the series too.
