In February 2015, the first 16 issues of the Boom! Comics Darkwing Duck series and both stories in the single annual issue were reprinted as a trade by Joe Books Inc., rewritten by original editor Aaron Sparrow to better fit the show's tone and featuring a new epilogue. This is to be followed by a new ongoing series written by Sparrow. Unfortunately, it was reported in July 2015 that the revival of the comic had to be put on hold, and it is now scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2016.

In 2010, nearly 2 decades after ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' went off the air, Disney revived the franchise with the announcement of a brand-new four-issue comic miniseries, later expanded to a ongoing monthly comic series, published by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]]. Unfortunately, the comic book was cancelled in 2011 after 18 issues due to Creator/{{Disney}} obtaining ownership of Creator/MarvelComics and revoking Boom's license to make comics based on Disney properties. Boom! managed to weasel the publication of a few more issues to conclude the story arc they were publishing at the time, ''DangerousCurrency'', even after they had lost the license; [[DidntThinkThisThrough Bad Idea]]: not only has Disney sued Boom! for this, ''Dangerous Currency'' has never been reprinted anywhere ''in the whole world'' ever since, and Disney constantly hammers that it's now "non-canon".

* NotBrainwashed: [[spoiler:Darkwarrior Duck told Quiverwing Darkwing it was so in his case.

* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: As of the first issue, [[spoiler:Quackerjack seems to be doing this with the Fearsome Four, even using the exact phrase.]] * RedHerring: The revised version of the "Campaign Carnage" arc in the Joe Books omnibus at first seems to have changed it so that Suff-Rage is Morgana [=McCawber=] after a FaceHeelTurn due to referring to Darkwing as "Dark" and her helmet matching the shape of Morgana's hair (the latter actually being the case in the original Boom version), [[spoiler:but it turns out that she is still Constance A. Dention, who now had an unrequited crush on Darkwing.]] ** During "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings", Quiverwing Darkwing has Darkwarrior in his sights, and the latter surrenders, claiming they both saw into the timestream and the main Darkwing deserved a final victory before "he loses her". Both of these alternate Darkwings lost their Gosalyn, it was Darkwarrior's StartOfDarkness, there's a strong implication that something's going to happen to Gosalyn Prime...[[spoiler: and then the next arc ends with Morgana's HeroicSacrifice.]] * ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Femme Appeal]] turns out to be one. * RoguesGalleryTransplant: Well, it's obvious that Darkwing fights two infamous Disney villains from other comics: Magica [=DeSpell=] is Scrooge Mcduck's enemy and the Phantom Blot is known to be Mickey Mouse's archnemesis. Conversely, in Boom's concurrent ''Ducktales'' comics, John D. Rockerduck hires Darkwing's enemies Moliarty and Camille Chameleon as mercenaries to stop Scrooge, Launchpad and his nephews from getting Scrooge's treasure back. ** The Phantom Blot also lampshades his being a transplant in "Dangerous Currency" when he tells Magica that he has enemies of his own. In fact, he actually appeared in the ''DuckTales'' episode "All Ducks on Deck", so the Blot is already familiar with the likes of Scrooge and Launchpad. * SelfDeprecation: In "Campaign Carnage", Suff-Rage torments Darkwing by asking what he is afraid of and changing him to match her questions. When she asks if he is afraid that he is not original, Darkwing then gains multiple heads with the likenesses of his alternate selves from the "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings" arc, many of which were examples of CaptainErsatz and NoCelebritiesWereHarmed. In other words, the comic is mocking itself for having so many of Darkwing's alternate selves be based on copyrighted characters and celebrities. The Joe Books revision takes it a step further by having Darkwing and Launchpad make fun of Suff-Rage's name. * ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Issue #4 of the Boom! comic has Megavolt, at the end of his inner monologue, ''zap'' Taurus Bulba during the middle of his speech, freeing Darkwing and the other prisoners.]]

Boom! managed to weasel the publication of a few more issues to conclude the story arc they were publishing at the time, ''DangerousCurrency'', even after they had lost the license; [[Didn'tThinkThisThrough Bad Idea]]: not only has Disney sued Boom! for this, ''Dangerous Currency'' has never been reprinted anywhere ''in the whole world'' ever since, and Disney constantly hammers that it's now "non-canon".
