Epic Mickey Creator Starts Spinning DuckTales

Proving his deep love for classic Disney characters in Epic Mickey, acclaimed video game creator Warren Spector takes on Disney's first feathered family as the writer for BOOM! Studios' DuckTales comic book. Will he solve a mystery, or rewrite history?

It's never too late for a career change, as the 55-year-old Warren Spector demonstrates with his latest project, bringing the classic Disney Afternoon cartoon series back to life in graphic novel form. Spector is no stranger to the comic book store, having met his wife of nearly 24-years at one such store back in 1984. Note to current comic book store customers: This doesn't happen unless you're Warren Spector.

Spector will be joined by artist Miquel Pujol in creating new adventures for Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Launchpad McQuack, and of course, Donald. Maybe if we're really lucky we'll get a little GizmoDuck action up in here.

To celebrate the upcoming comic book series, let's take a look back at the Nintendo Entertainment System video game inspired by the show that started it all.
