Since their revival of Darkwing Duck was such a huge success, BOOM! Studios announced that they will be bringing back another beloved kids show when they launch Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers in December. The ongoing series features the two chipmunk adventurers and all their friends and if the Darkwing Duck series is any indication, this series should be a lot of fun.
For those too young to remember, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers launched in 1989 and follows the adventures of the titular rodents; Australian Mouse Monterey Jack; pilot, inventor, and love interest Gadget; and Zipper the housefly. They travel around the world, solving cases, and you know, get into shenanigans. During its run, it was the most popular of Disney afternoon shows, and it still has legions of fans who can sing that theme song all these years later.
One other thing to put fans’ minds at ease is that the series will be written by Ian Brill, the guy behind that Darkwing Duck series. Artist Leonel Castellani is no stranger to working on adaptations of kids shows, having done the art for Marvel Superhero Squad.
All of BOOM! Studios kids books have been great so far, and I find it hard to think that this one will be any different, so if you were a fan of the show, this is a book to look forward to.
