IDW has announced that it is set to debut a selection of Disney Comics collections beginning in March 2015 with an Artist’s Edition of Don Rosa’s Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Artist’s Edition, followed by four extra-length comic series launches in April, May, June, and July.
“The chance to bring Disney comics to fans, both old and new, is a fantastic opportunity,” said IDW editor Sarah Gaydos. “We cannot wait to get these into the hands of readers!”
The four premiere issues are Uncle Scrooge #1 (April), Donald Duck #1 (May), Mickey Mouse #1 (June) and Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories (July), which will maintain its original numbering and launch with #721. All four premiere issues will offer 48 pages of content for $3.99, with subsequent issues offering 40 pages per issue for that same cover price.
“It’s the best bargain in the business,” said IDW archival editor David Gerstein. “No wonder it’s attracted Scrooge McDuck! And we’ll be attracting a big following, too—with stories by epic talents like Romano Scarpa, Daan Jippes, Casty, Giorgio Cavazzano, and Al Taliaferro.”
