San Diego, CA (September 18, 2017) – IDW Publishing, in conjunction with Disney Publishing, is bringing Scrooge McDuck and his young triplet great-nephews Huey, Dewey, Louie, plus Webby, back in a cleverly written, comic book series to coincide with Disney XD’s new animated comedy adventure series “DuckTales” debuting Saturday, September 23 with two new back-to-back episodes (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m., EDT).

DuckTales: Treasure Trove collects issues #1 and #2, as well as the special introductory issue #0 from IDW’s ongoing series, set prior to the series opener. In fact, today marks the 30th Anniversary of the television debut of “DuckTales”!

DuckTales: Treasure Trove is told from the vantage point of Scrooge McDuck’s young companions as they prepare to meet their wealthy great-uncle for the first time. Written by Eisner-Award nominated comic book creator Joe Caramagna and illustrated by a passel of Italy’s finest Disney artists, this title is set to bring you a mix of vibrant new Duckburg short stories set in the world of the animated series.

Caramagna says “DuckTales is always about race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes,” teasing readers about what he has in store for them, with a nod to the “DuckTales” theme song. “The challenge for readers will be not to hum that tune while they read this series. Woo-oo!”

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
