DARK HORSE TO PUBLISH “DISNEY MOBY DICK, STARRING DONALD DUCK”

Dark Horse is proud to present an adaption of Herman Melville’s classic story with a feathery twist! From writer Francesco Artibani, artist Paolo Mottura, and colorist Mirka Andolfo comes Disney Moby Dick, starring Donald Duck. This tale of obsession on the high seas stars Donald, Scrooge McDuck, and Huey, Dewey, and Louie!

In Disney Moby Dick, starring Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Donald, and nephews venture out on the high seas in pursuit of the white whale Moby Dick who stole Captain Quackhab’s lucky dime. As Quackhab scours the ocean in pursuit of his nemesis, facing other dangers of the sea, the crew begins to wonder: how far will their captain go for revenge? When his ship is destroyed and his lucky dime stolen by the monstrous white whale Moby Dick, Captain Quackhab sets sail on a voyage of revenge against the fearsome leviathan. Joined by Ishmael, his first mate Mr. Storkbuck, and the island triplets, Huqueg, Duqueg, and Luqueg, and his crew of ne’er-do-wells, Quackhab won’t rest until he gets his prize. But whales aren’t the only danger the seas have to offer. Our heroes must contend with giant squids, pirate crows, and mighty storms before even catching a sight of Moby Dick. And when they finally come face to face with the great white whale, will any of them make it back to land in one piece?

Disney Moby Dick, starring Donald Duck goes on sale November 21, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop. This 80-page graphic novel retails for $10.99.

New Trailer for “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” Arrives

The first official full trailer is out for the upcoming animated movie “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2,” and things are getting weird from the start. We are taking exploding bunny weird. Check out the video above to see what we mean!

“Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”

Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-Ralph 2” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
