PK Tube - Episode 1

Well, here is PK Tube! What in the fuck is PK Tube?

In case you didn't know, it is the 20th anniversary of the Duck Avenger in this specific comic book universe. It has been 20 years since the very first issue of Paperinik New Adventures was put on the shelves. And for weeks and weeks, there will be celebration.

That is, this week's Topolino and a certain number of following magazines is gonna feature a 10-page story of our beloved universe that is not rebooted. And here is the first one!

PK Tube EP.1

These stories are and will be made by the same team that worked on #0 "Evronians". And as it's classic to see Alessandro Sisti writing something, but I'm surprised to see Alberto Lavoradori drawing again, as he's not done all that much related to this series. And I know I talked shit about his art before, but it actually looks pretty good here and makes me feel nostalgic. Maybe the coloring makes the difference, or it actually is a result of 20 years of improvement. I believe I'll enjoy seeing more.

As for these short stories, we are going to get a total of 6. And if what I hear is true, after PK Tube is finished, we might just be getting the next PK New Era immediatly after.

DoubleDuck - Like a Game

So here is the last DoubleDuck. Unless someone decided to publish a brand new story just as I finish writing up this post. That would not be the first time. Yeah.....

This story, right here, right now, was actually quite touching. I think this is a good temporary note to go out on... and I am of course talking about the image of Kay K dressed as a Japanese school girl. Sniff. So emotional, it warms my heart.

DoubleDuck - Like a Game

But fuck that sentimental shit! If you want something that will really make your feelings go into high gear, then check back here for the next post! What is happening? It's PK Tube! What in the fuck is PK Tube? I don't even know who I am anymore! Buy tickets now!

DoubleDuck - The Last Day

I am back, and I am translating something I haven't touched for over a year. This here's the DoubleDuck story that happened to be released as soon as I was done with the complete current collection of DD.

It was a New Year special released during New Year that was meant to celebrate the coming of the year 2015. Welp, it's never gonna be appropriate to release it at any time afterwards, so here you get the story in the beggining of the spring season. It's still snowing in my country, by the way. Snow is just natural to me.

Tell me if the story you're going to read seems familiar at all. Like, seriously.

DoubleDuck - The Last Day (1-2)

Speaking of two-parters, it's not gonna be too long before we see the next PK New Era. And from what I hear, it's only going to be two parts this time, 90 pages total, maybe. Word is going around on those Facebook pages. There's also a tiny image of Claudio Sciarrone sketching for the new story. Is he being a little sneak and giving previews?

Hopefully that means we'll get the entire thing in one single magazine, Topolino usually does that with their two-parters. That includes today's DoubleDuck. You can consider this translation (and a future one) appetizers for the delicious main course. Will be very appropriate if that DoubleDuck crossover I've heard nothing more about really is true.

Alright, so there's currently one more DoubleDuck out there. I'll be back...
