Dynamite and Disney have a new book on the horizon… Negaduck#1!

He’s not the terror that flaps in the night… In fact, he’s the screeching fingernail on the chalkboard of justice! He’s the sour ball in the candy jar of goodness. He’s… Negaduck! And the Disney fan-favorite foe is making his way into his very own comic series this fall from writer Jeff Parker!

Darkwing Duck is the honorable protector of St. Canard, and a strong family man to his daughter Gosalyn. Over in his native Negaverse, Negaduck is the polar opposite of everything Drake Mallard stands for, his evil doppelganger in every way. Negaduck is nefarious and dedicated to stealing lollipops from children and not helping grandmothers cross the street! Now, in his brand-new title, he’s revving up a reign of crime and terror of record levels. There’s only one problem… all the other criminals are ripping off his ideas — so he’s taking his show on the road!


Writer Jeff Parker (Aquaman, Thunderbolts, Hulk) brings his style to the legendary villain with artist Ciro Cangialosi, whose cartooning style will complement the main Darkwing Duck series by Carlo Cid Lauro. Observant fans and collectors will notice Cangialosi has already been drawing several of the fun action figure variants for Darkwing Duck, including the one featuring Negaduck on issue #6!

“When I’m doing stuff that’s very all ages, I still try to entertain myself first, and I assume the reader is pretty smart even when very young,” said Parker. “I like how universal in appeal books like this can be, you ‘get it’ within a page and are along for the ride, you don’t have to read a wiki entry before beginning. I like to make stories for newer readers and get older readers to reconnect to the kind of work that pulled them into comics and animation. Also, I love that I can give these books out at Halloween with candy, that’s a big plus with all-ages stories.”


Editor Nate Cosby added, “No one on the planet’s better at writing all-ages comics than the great JEFF PARKER. Dude can make even NEGADUCK relatable… and Negaduck’s favorite thing is breaking stuff with a chainsaw! Combined with Ciro’s lushly detailed visuals and Eckleberry’s zippy lettering, the book is going to be a treat for any reader of any age!”

Not only will fans enjoy the large hat and large ego of Negaduck in the series, but other great characters from the mythos will appear as well, such as The Fearsome Four and Taurus Bulba.


As for covers, Joshua Middleton, Jae Lee, and Trish Forstner add their style. Parker’s frequent collaborator Steve Lieber jumps in as well with his first cover being a bit of a subtle nod to his work Whiteout. Then Parker himself tackles the action figure cover, tapping into his own artistic side.


Negaduck#1 is available for preorder this month and is slated for release in September. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
