The DuckTales comic book published by Disney Comics was the second of three different comic books based on the animated series of the same name. It was one of the company's eight initial titles and ran for eighteen issues from the company's launch in April 1990 to September 1991.
Disney Comics' DuckTales differed from its predecessor, the Gladstone PublishingDuckTales comic, in several ways. In addition to restarting the comic's numbering system with its first issue, this DuckTales comic rarely included multiple stories per issue, and as such, did not contain any reprints of Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge stories. In fact, while stories intended for overseas distribution had been regular features in the Gladstone title, only two issues of the Disney Comics title (issues #8 and #16) included such stories.
Most of the Disney Comics DuckTales title's run was devoted to three different multi-part adventure stories - "Scrooge's Quest" (published from issues #1-7), "The Gold Odyssey" (issues #9-15), and "A Dime in Time" (issues #17-18). The first two arcs were later reprinted as trade paperbacks by Gemstone Publishing in 2007 and 2008.
Despite this series coming out well after the start of the show's second season (and a mechanical version of the Yeeker birds from "The Unbreakable Bin" making an appearance in issue #5), Bubba, Tootsie, and Fenton oddly did not appear in a single issue of this series.
Due to the Disney Comics Implosion, the DuckTales title was cancelled in October 1991, though Disney continued to regularly publish new DuckTales comic stories in Disney Adventures from then through November 1994.
