DoubleDuck - Christmas Presents + Element 109

I am here to wish you a merry early Christmas, carrying a bag full of a few presents in the form of translations of the last DoubleDuck comic as of this time. This will be my last post of 2014, and after that, everything will change. Nothing shall ever be the same again.

Way to be overly dramatic. I'm probably just gonna poorly translate more shit. Have no great expectations for 2015. Just look forward to those new PK stories to come. And I'll probably go back to covering that reboot. Got like 12 issues left, should be able to manage that. Anyways, anyways...

One of the last stories of DoubleDuck actually happens to be a Christmas themed, or at least takes place around the Christmas times. It's not like the plot is about some villain trying to stop this festive event from coming. This story is a chunky 3-parter, download link is down below. Why am I telling you that like you don't know...

Tsk. Marco Mazarello, how fucking happy I am to see you draw DoubleDuck for the 100th time... I'm not tired of your style at all!

And while that story involves flashbacks of Kay K as a little girl, as well as family members of Kay K, this next story also involves that. Thus, it goes greatly along with the Christmas story, even though it has nothing to do with Christmas. And the art by Paolo De Lorenzi is most appreciated. It looks good, and it's different.

There. That's all the DoubleDuck there is. We've reached the temporary end. This will be a day of mourning for the further DoubleDuck that does not exist. And now I will actually be compelled to to other stuff. Some of you are probably rejoicing. That's cool. I love having a hateful relationship with you people.

I'm gonna take a moment for the sadness. You guys enjoy these last comics. These last comics. Until there's more in the future. Okay. Say goodbye to everyone, Kay K.


Well now everyone's just gonna be longing for you.

Hmm. I feel like there's something I should be ending his holiday post on. Something familiar. What was it again...

News on next PK story in Spring 2015

Now there's been news out there before about getting at least 2 new multi-part stories of the continuation of PKNA and PK2 which someone at Topolino referred to as "PK New Era" which I'm gonna keep calling it. But now there appears to be more info which I believe in because someone wrote it.

The next story that will be published in Topolino in the spring of 2015 (man that's still a while) will this time be written by classic Alessandro Sisti. Meaning that anything is possible in terms of quality narrative. As for the artist... Claudio Sciarrone.

The title of the story would appear to be "Gli Argenti del Tempo".

Now, even if you don't have much understand of the Italian language, you should at least be able to read that as "The Somethingsomethingsomething of Time". Looks like we're still gonna have some time travel adventures for the time being, and it goes without saying that the Raider will once again be part of the cast. And now to ignore a total idiot moment I had...

Also, it's said that we're finally going to see Lyla Lay again. Guess she's not dead. Going by when the final issue of the reboot was published, it's gonna be 10 years after she last appeared in a story of any kind. I'd still like to know where she fucked off to in PK2.

And now's the time to reveal a secret. I've actually known for quite a while that Claudio was gonna be drawing one of the upcoming ones. How did I know? Because he revealed that to me himself in a message exchange we had on Facebook.

The question now would be why I never told anyone... The answer to that is simple.

It's because Claudio said he'd kill me if I did.

Seeing as this information has now been put out into the open, there is absolutely no chance of me suffering consequences for making this post, right?

Right?
