Archie Comics is launching Super Duck, a mature readers series rebooting the Golden Age character in a satirical fashion. The first issue doesn’t debut until the end of March, but we have an early preview for you to check out. As a reminder, this is NOT for kids. The preview is safe for work though, so don’t worry.
Super Duck is the greatest hero of Ducktropolis. Brash, arrogant and virtually unbeatable, he’s defeated all threats to the city and routinely foils the schemes of his greatest rival, criminal genius and corporate billionaire Dapper Duck. But now, three years later, Super Duck has fallen on hard times. Down on his luck and with his superheroing days a distant memory, he is reduced to appearing at comic conventions for measly appearance fees. So when he’s approached by a rival of Dapper to be his personal bodyguard/accompany him on his many adventures, Supe has to decide if he’s ready to don his cape once more in this series for mature readers!
Super Duck #1 is written by Frank Tieri and Ian Flynn, illustrated by Ryan Jampole, colored by Matt Herms, and lettered by Jack Morelli. It features a main cover by Jampole and variant covers by Derek Charm, Andy Fish, Adam Gorham, and Erica Henderson. It’s set for release on March 25th, 2020 and the final order cutoff date for comic shops is Monday, March 2nd, 2020.
