ICv2 is reporting
It appears that BOOM! Studios has stopped soliciting for new issues of its Kaboom! titles based on Classic Disney properties such as Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge, Mickey Mouse, and Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories.
They base this on the next Diamond Previews (for titles releasing in July) not containing any listings for these titles, and the Boom! website no longer having subscription listings for those titles. ICv2 continues:
BOOM! is continuing to solicit (at least for now) for its titles based on Disney Afternoon properties such as Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and Ducktales. A BOOM! spokesperson declined to comment on any questions related to its Disney titles.
Now that Disney has its own comic publisher, it’s not surprising that the licenses are continuing to come back in house, following the Pixar and Muppet comics. And it’s also not surprising that a big corporation would let a smaller company do all their R&D in opening and demonstrating the potential of a market, only to decide that they’d be the ones to exploit that market once the hard work has been done and customers established.
