July 2nd. Tomorrow. This is happening.
The one and only true Duck Avenger returns in TOPOLINO #3058, hitting stores in Italy Wednesday! No more alternate universes or reinterpretations - this is an ACTUAL continuation of the story that ended 12 years ago in PKNA/PK2!
It's also a new start and a chance to draw in a new generation of readers, of course, so it's not likely that they'll be picking up EVERY plot thread right from the beginning. But still - these are the same characters, and we're finally gonna see them again for real!
The first few pages have already been released as a preview. And Banker has been nice enough to translate the first one:
This is all part of a four-part mini-series that'll be running each week in the Italian TOPOLINO comics. And I don't know about you, but I'll be finding SOME way to get my hands on a copy of each of these issues. Not only do I want a copy regardless of the language, I also want these comics to do as well as they possibly can - I want more, dammit! Maybe I have friends who'll be vacationing in Italy...
Man, look at this thing. I want it!
There are lots of other details on the subject, but I'm admittedly a bit hazy on them as they all tend to be in Italian. Apparently the conclusion to the tale will be decided by the readers, though what exactly that entails, I haven't managed to find out. You can check out the official (Italian) facebook page for more news.
And if any Italian speakers are able to clarify or better explain anything that I and my semi-broken Italian have missed or misunderstood, feel very welcome to point it out in the comment section. I might make some modifications to this post as needed.
Also, HOLY SHIT, THERE'S REALLY NEW DUCK AVENGER COMICS! LIKE, FOR REAL!
And now: The monthly run-down. Lot's of stuff on this front too.
Let's start with a whole lot of PiKappa comics from Banker:
Five to be exact. Don't say he doesn't spoil ya. Issues 16-17 can be found here! While issues 18-20 can be found here!
He also found the time to do another DoubleDuck comic, which can be found here:
And guess what? So did someone else: Over on Banker's site, Wiiola/rCORNERod has contributed two new DoubleDuck comics:
And back to physical comics: If you happen to live in Finland, you should check this out:
This awesome collection that hit shelves in June collects not only the first issue of Paperinik New Adventures, but also the first issue of Mickey Mouse Mystery Magazine. And also some Ultraheroes and a bunch of other stuff. So go check it out and support the series if you can.
And that's about it for this month.
If you've been looking for the officially translated Pikappa comics online but haven't found them, by the way, you might wanna look in the comment section for the last post 'Monthly run-down: May'. I won't put it up here in a main post, but, y'know... I'm just sayin'.
So, lots of exciting stuff to look forward to this month. I'll probably be around a bit more than usual, so if you pick up some more news or important details, please share it in the comment section.
This is gonna be awesome.
