Monthly rund-down: May

Okay, guys, there's a bunch of stuff this month. And for those of you who have been praying for more Banker-translated PiKappa... Well, you'll definitely wanna read this message from Banker from one of his posts:

(I'll even highlight the very most important part near the end for you.)
Pikappa. Officially translated as Superduck. The reboot series to PKNA and Pk2. There's 32 comics of this series in total. The first 20 were officially translated into English and could only be acquired through some phone apps in certain parts of the world. In more recent times, the first 13 of these translated issues were added to Comixology and thus available for digital purchase, but  again only available to certain parts of the world.

Because of this stupid fucking shit, not many who've wanted to have been able to read this reboot, as much of a downgrade it is from the original series we love. We are Pkers and we want more PK. There are still many great stories to be found within this series, despite how the overall thing is not just the same, and it sucks how some of you are not able to read'em.

When it comes to Pikappa and the things I do, I have translated the smaller stories from the first 20 issues, as in the official translations only the big stories were covered. I stopped at that point and started considering doing the big stories as well from the 21st issue. Of course, there have been people wanting me to do those that came before that. Natural reasons. And I've given it thought.

All the time I have tried to be cautious and not get in trouble with Disney. Though so far, with everything I've done, that has not happened in anyway. I wanted to avoid translating what was already available. Though it hasn't been very available has it.

And heck, the previous DoubleDuck I did, "Mission Thermal Heart", was already available on Comixology. I was merely taken into consideration the stories published in actual magazines. Which there are scans of available somewhere on the net, for those who are interested. You guys see what you can find!

I can go into Pikappa. But I wont start from the very beginning. Psst. Hear me out. Psst, you guys. Finding these first 13 issues as free downloads is merely a Google search away. I wont post links, but I will tell you it's out there. Everyone can get it if they make the search. If you guys wanna read, you'll have to do that, but psst, you didn't hear it from me. "wink wink"

You guys find'em and read'em. When it comes from the issues starting from 14, I think I will take care of that
. I think I will.

How's that for a solution? Personally I like it a lot. So go out there and use some Google-Fu. Because Banker is nothing if not a man of his word, and he's already the next two Pikappa main stories:

PiKappa #14 - Tourists from Space

PiKappa #15 - The Swarm

What's more, Banker's also got some DoubleDuck for us:

DoubleDuck - Hunters and Prey parts 1-4

DoubleDuck - Secrets on Display

And finally, of course, if you happen to live anywhere near Italy, you should hurry over there to pick up the latest issue of Paperinik Appgrade for the next part of PK Universo! Featuring THIS freaky thing on the cover!


Strange. But cool. I want one.

See you next time!
