A subscriber to the Disney Comics Mailing List has just reported -- and I've independently confirmed -- that Boom! Studios intends to supplement its kid-focused Disney comics line with some collections targeted at adult collectors. To wit:
November 2009: Walt Disney's Christmas Classics Volume 1 (Carl Barks, Floyd Gottfredson, Walt Kelly, and Daan Jippes)
January 2010: Walt Disney's Valentine's Classics Volume 1 (Barks, Kelly, and Jippes)
Feburary 2010: Mickey Mouse Classics: Mouse Tails (Gottfredson)
March 2010: Donald Duck Classics: Quack Up (Barks)
These will be supplemented by re-releases of Don Rosa's LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOGE McDUCK in two parts (February and April).
Here's the x factor: These collections will be hardbound volumes, rather than trade paperbacks, and retail for $24.99. That's pretty pricey for a set of material that includes a large number of Barks reprints. The Kelly, Gottfredson, and Jippes material will determine whether or not I get these.
