Christmas with the Duck Avenger!

Rapid updates to make up for the long absence. Don't forget to scroll down (or click here!) to see the classic stories that Blotling and Yoshi have translated, if you didn't see them yesterday! 

Ah, 'tis the season. Banker returns with with some new, beautiful re-edited versions PKNA #13 and #14. Those were the only issues of PKNA that nobody on this site ever touched, because they'd already been done over at an older site, years ago. There were some discrepancies, though. The Avenger is just called Paperinik, and the font has never looked quite right to me. So I think it's awesome to have a remake made.

So here, ladies and gentlemen, just in time for Christmas, is the new, Banker-ized version of the classic Christmas story:



And hey, the other one's topical too. At least it was yesterday when Banker first uploaded it, according to half the people I know on Facebook: It's about the end of the world.

PKNA#14 - Carpe Diem


Finally, there's good news for PiKappa fans from CERTAIN parts of the world at least: Comixology.com has apparently started to feature Superduck comics at least in Greece. For the Greek, you can check out this link: http://www.comixology.com/Superduck/comics-series/9744

That link probably won't work for anyone else (it doesn't in Denmark at least), but you can always give it a try (or try searching for 'Superduck' on Comixology) and let us know whether there's anything to be found. It's always interesting to try to figure out if there are other countries where it's available.

Merry Christmas!

Classic stories by Yoshi and Blotling

And finally an update on the main page! I am so sorry for my absence - and I especially apologize to Blotling, who finished second part of "The Salvation of the Duck Avenger" (now retitled "The Duck Avenger Strikes Back") a frickin' MONTH ago, but I've somehow overlooked it in the comics. And then real life and finals happened, and I've generally been a bit of a klutz.

In the meantime, Yoshi has finished another old-school Duck Avenger adventure: "The Duck Avenger versus The Contaminator". So if you haven't been checking the comments, here's some sweet new stuff for ya:





Big thanks to the translators. And again, I apologize profusely.

Oh. And hey. Merry Christmas!

The Return of Angus Tales


Angus Tales - Unannounced Visits

Maaaan, this little gem has been waiting down in the comments for a WEEK before I noticed it. Apologies, and big thanks to Banker.

The last bonus story to ever grace a PKNA comic was a return to classics: One last Angus Tale to round it all off. Enjoy.

Oh, and Banker doesn't wanna touch Trip's Strip, so I figure maybe I'll have a go at them at some point. I haven't been doing any real work since PKNA #11, so it's probably about time I start chipping in again.

Return of the Motion Comics


Banker has a plan:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqjlBcJct9M

If you're interested in being a part of Banker's next great project, check it out! And of course, if you haven't seen his LAST motion comic (which comes with the seal of approval of beloved PKNA artist Claudio Sciarrone), check that out here: Fragments of Autumn - The Motion Comic

In other news:

GERMANS: I've been told that Lustiges Taschenbuch Premium #4 will contain more stories from PKNA. The series marches on!

GREEKS: I've been told that the Mickey Mouse Mystery Magazine is now being reprinted in Greece on a bi-monthly basis. Huzzah!

Any other news of publications I might have missed? Let me know and I'll add them to the list.

PK2 - The Final Issues

And here we are. Banker has done it people, and in less than five weeks. The entire series of PK2 translated. Look on his work, ye mighty, and despair!

And now: The final two issues of this awesome series.


PK2 #17 - In the Fire

PK2 #18 - Family Affairs

 The end.

I haven't had time to read them yet (and I do NOT want to rush through this), but I am excited as HELL about getting to read these.

I don't know if Banker secretly loves it or hates it when we praise him to the skies - either way, I'm sure he'll reply with some cuss-filled sarcastic quip - but either way: I think we can all agree that the work he's put into this is truly awe-inspiring. And I know we're all thankful for it.

Now all together in the comment section:

HAIL BANKER!

PK2 #16 - Soldier of Fortune


 The Quadrilogy - Episode Two

(I'm running out of new ways to sing Banker's praises here.)

PK2 #15 - The True Enemy

You might have missed issue #14, which was just put up yesterday. Scroll down a bit and you'll find it.

ANDNOWBANKER'SBACK!

PK2 #15 - The True Enemy

Also known as "The Quadrilogy - Episode 1". Which means that, after this, there are only three issues remaining...

PK2 #14 - The Last Hunt


 PK2 #14 - The Last Hunt

We're on the home stretch now, people. Hail Banker!

Saturday, September 8, 2012

PK2 #12 + #13

 Man, I can barely even keep up anymore. Awesome!

With Banker's current speed, it's very possible that you missed issues #10 and #11. Scroll down to find those. And now here's two more!


PK2 #12 - Blackout

 PK2 #13 – Everything and Nothing

Friday, September 7, 2012

PK2 #10 and #11


Ooph, I've been getting behind. But to anyone who hasn't been watching the comments, here's a very good start to your weekend, courtesy of Banker.

PK2 #10 - High Volume

Sunday, September 2, 2012

PK2 #9 - Degrees of Separation


Banker's back. And this happens to be the last issue that was ever published in my country. From here on out, this is all new to me.

I love it.

Saturday, September 1, 2012

Double dose of PK2

 PK2 Special 2001 - Duckmall

PK2 #8 - Just a Friend

What's this? A special issue I've never read before? And issue 8 to boot?

I like it, Banker. I like it.

PK2 #7 - One More Day

PK2 #7 - One More Day

Banker. Comic. Awesome.

Friday, August 24, 2012

PK2 #5 + #6

PK2 #5 - End of History

PK2 #6 - Alpha Waves

My apologies for being a bit slow. I was away for a couple of days. And in the meantime Banker of course finished two new issues. Because he's bad-ass like that.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

PK2 #4 - Memory Lines

PK2 #4 - Memory Lines

Starting to suspect that Banker is in fact a machine sent from the future. This level of productivity just doesn't seem human.

(Also, the fact that he's still in contact with Claudio Sciarrone who's apparently got something brewing is just awesome!)

Oh, and in case you missed it, scroll down a bit if you missed issue #3, as well as Blotling's translation of a classic Duck Avenger tale!

The Salvation of the Duck Avenger + PK2 #3

Double feature - Banker and Blotling are back!

Blotling returns with 'The Salvation of the Duck Avenger', another classic tale from the start of the Avenger's career.

Blotling has of course already provided translations of the origin of the Duck Avenger: Both part one and part two.

And Banker returns with the third installment of PK2:

(Link is fixed now)


It is a good day.

PK2 #1 - Ducklair

PK2 #1 - Ducklair

And so it begins...

Not one to rest on his laurels after crafting the Fragments of Autumn motion comic (which now has the seal of approval of Claudio Sciarrone himself - no seriously, he commented on the video!), Banker is back with what we've all been waiting for: PK2

This issue is probably my favorite out of ANY PK series, by the way. Enjoy.

Fragments of Autumn - The Motion Comic

 

You know that thing Banker has been working on? That incredibly ambitious motion comic project, taking one of the most acclaimed issues of PKNA and making it come alive, voice actors and all?

Well, it's here. And it's every bit as impressive as it sounds.

Fragments of Autumn - The Motion Comic

How was it Banker put it on his own blog? "I won't be humble. You should worship me. Right the f**k now."

I'm finding it very hard to argue with this man. I bow my head in deepest worship.



Especially now that he's declared his intention to take on PK2 before too long.

Bankin' the Duck

 

I meant to link to this a while ago, but then my little head got distracted by something shiny. I apologize for that, but here we go:

Banker has another PKNA-related project lined up: Bankin' the Duck, his new blog where he'll be going through the comic series while commenting on them in his own personal style. His own style being highly sarcastic, extremely rude and quite hilarious.

If you enjoy PKNA solely for their friendly all-ages charm, this may not be the blog for you. But if you don't mind seeing quite a lot of cuss words and having your favorite comic series lovingly torn to shreds before your eyes, I very much recommend you check it out.

PKNA BONUS #32 and #33

PKNA#49/50 - If...


PKNA#49/50 - If...

 How's this for huge? With this awesome translation from Banker we now have a translation of ALL 56 ISSUES OF PAPERINIK NEW ADVENTURES!

As this issue implies though, this isn't exactly the end - next up is PK2, and some of my favorite issues. If Banker chooses to tackle these as well, I'll be a very happy man indeed. But no matter what, this here is an amazing milestone.

People have started on this project at other times in the past, but they've never made it past the first few issues. We just finished a series.

Huge, huge, HUGE props to Banker who has been doing an AMAZING amount of work, and has been the driving force of this site for a long time. And a huge thanks to Aspargus32 who's done back-up features, to zvbxrpl who's done great work on PKNA and MMMM, to Murray who did back-up features as well, to Trauma and Rikard who did great translations when this site was young, and to Mirkl - who took the first issues of a great series, translated it, and shared it on an imageboard, starting this whole thing off.

(I fear that I may have missed someone - it was a long time ago, and the credits I used to write out disappeared off the site a long time ago. So If I've forgotten someone, I hope they'll forgive me.)

 I love how this site has just kept going. It's amazing to see. Thank you all.



Oh, and something I thought I'd share: A fellow fan sent me an email, and I got such a kick out of reading it that I thought you all should see it too. Especially Banker, Aspargus32, and... well, everyone I just mentioned.

So here, hopefully with the blessing of the writer, is an amazing piece of mail that I got sent the other day. I think we can all recognise some of ourselves in this.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My good sir.

When I was a little Swedish boy I loved the character Donald Duck

I loved his personality, I loved his design, I loved his temper. I basically loved everything about him.

One day, when I was about seven years old, I followed my father into a gas station. He had just filled up his car with gas, and we were on our way to the Norwegian mountains, so he told me he would buy me a comic book, if only so that I would keep quiet for the rest of the journey. Rummaging through the comic book stands I happened upon a peculiar Donald Duck comic.

In which Donald Duck was a superhero.

I pretty much pissed my pants due to all the awesome.

I read the comic maybe a dozen times during the trip, and I continued reading it until it more or less fell apart.

I managed to convince my parents to buy me another issue, and that kept me transfixed for months. They never bought me any more, though, probably because of their poor sense of awesome.

And soon enough the comic had gone out of production. I only ever managed to get those two comics, and they are now so worn out that only I can read them, since I have basically memorized them.

Twelve years after that fateful incident in the gas station I stumbled unto your blog.

I literally cried tears of joy.

I really can't thank you enough for all your work. Just know that I am immensly grateful, and that if you're ever in Sweden I would be honored to buy you a beer.

Or beers.

Or all of the beers.

Thank you. You are a wonderful human being.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How nice is that?

PKNA #43 - Time to Time

PKNA #43 - Time to Time

Sorry it took me a while to get this up on the front page. Banker's speed is awe-inspiring these days!

Monday, May 7, 2012

PKNA #40 + #41

Banker's back! And because I was a bit slow to update the site, he's managed to finish a second issue before I could even finish the first one!

 
PKNA#40 - A Single Breath

PKNA#41 - Agdy Days

By the way, it's been a while since I've mentioned this on the front page, so some people may be in doubt: Most files on this site are .cbr-files which you can read easily by downloading a program like Comical or CDisplay - both nice, free programs. You can also manually change the format to RAR, simply by changing the ".cbr" to ".rar".

I'll make sure to make a more permanent link somewhere on the site.

You know what else I haven't mentioned in a while and shall do likewise with? THE FORUM!

Donald Duck and the Diabolical Duck Avenger


DONALD DUCK AND THE DIABOLICAL DUCK AVENGER

Now here's something interesting: Fellow fan Blotling has just brought us a translation of the first-ever appearance of the Duck Avenger, from the Italian comic "Topolino".

The Avenger was a lot less sympathetic in his first appearances - in fact, he wasn't even supposed to be much of a superhero, just a way for Donald to take care of the people who wronged him. The superhero thing came later, when people eventually got tired of Donald just being a jackass.

PKNA #38 - In the fog


PKNA#38 - In the Fog

Banker brings us another cool issue.

Also, Danes might like to know that the second never-been-published-in-Denmark issue of PKNA is a part of THIS week's Anders And & Co. I believe they're gonna do the first four issues.


(Also, I swear I'm gonna update the download page tomorrow.)

THE MOTHERLODE

Oh man. Oh man oh man oh man.

Alright, let’s do this proper like:

PKNA #31 Bonus story: I am Xadhoom - Flat line

This is a good one. Huge props to Aspargus32.

Banker also brought a little something: The entire frickin' Xadhoom trilogy.

PKNA#35 - Stowaway on Board


PKNA#36 - Far, Far Away


PKNA#37 - Under a New Sun


I'm getting chills guys. But wait, Disney has also brought us some goodies:

If you're Greek, check this out:



Oh yes, PKNA is coming to Greece as Οι Νέεες Περιπέτειες του Φάντομ Ντακ. I don't know a lot of details about this one - websites about it tend to be in Greek. But if you're Greek too, go check it out!

Oh, and if you're Danish like me:



Yes! Check out this bad boy: http://www.gucca.dk/boeger/staalanden-reloaded-00_199173.html

A hardcover collection of the first four issues of PKNA - meaning three issues that have NEVER been released in Denmark, as well as Stålanden #1 "Skygger på Venus".

God, I want this thing!

EDIT:

Oh, and there's more: This week's edition of Anders And & Co. also brings the first issue of Stålanden Reloaded, meaning that a new generation of kids who CAN'T afford the hardcover version will get to enjoy it too. Next week's issue will bring another issue. So check those out too. And let's see if we can convince them to keep going.

Personally I'll probably end up buying both these and the hardcover. Man, this is fun.

That's it. Alright guys, Disney is making a move with spreading PKNA throughout the world. Let's show our appreciation and make it worth their while!
