Back in 2017, Disney debuted the reboot of the beloved DuckTales cartoon featuring the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his extended family family. It was clear from the get-go that this was a true love letter not only to the original Carl Barks‘ comics but the entire Disney pantheon, particularly the Disney Afternoon block. Sadly, all good things must come to an end and this new iteration of DuckTales came to an incredibly heartfelt and satisfying with the 3rd season with the message that “family is the greatest adventure of all.” More than a year after the show’s finale, Dark Horse has announced The Art of DuckTales!
Like Scrooge into the Money Bin, dive into this beautiful, oversized coffee-table book and read tales of the making of the series from developers Matt Youngberg, Francisco Angones, Sean Jimenez, Suzanna Olson, cast members including David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck), Danny Pudi (Huey), Ben Schwartz (Dewey), Bobby Moynihan (Louie), Kate Micucci (Webby), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), Toks Olagundoye (Mrs. Beakley), Paget Brewster (Della Duck), Don Cheadle (Donald Duck), and more! Along with interviews with the cast and crew, the book will also have artwork and stories from every single episode and never-before-seen artwork captioned by the creators.
This hardcover art book will be available in both a standard version retailing for $49.99 and a deluxe version retailing for $99.99. Befitting a book about Scrooge McDuck, the deluxe edition will be gold gilded and includes an exclusive slipcase featuring beautiful art. Moreover, will also feature the DuckTales Guidebook which contains an expanded version of the cast and crewmember interviews as well as a finely-crafted replica of Scrooge’s Number One Dime.
Dark Horse has a stellar track record of publishing exceptional art books including Go Team Venture!: The Art and Making of The Venture Bros and The Toys of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, so this latest one will likely be no exception.
The Art of DuckTales standard and deluxe editions will be available at comic stores September 21, 2022 and in bookstores September 20, 2022.
