Artist James Silvani announced on his Twitter account in October 2014 that a new ongoing Darkwing Duck would begin publication in 2015. Silvani said in his Tumblr post that "Aaron and I have already begun and will give more details as soon as possible."
Aaron Sparrow stated that, unlike the previous series, the new comic would not be required to have every story be a four-issue arc. He also stated that the new comic would have a few new crossovers with DuckTales (replacing the non-canon "Dangerous Currency" arc).
In July 2015, it was stated that the comic was being delayed for the time being in consideration of other "duck projects." In November, Aaron Sparrow confirmed that production had resumed and the series would be debuting in the spring of 2016. It was officially announced on January 18, 2016, that the new series would begin in April 2016.
Unfortunately, despite positive reception from critics and fans, the comic sold poorly and is being cancelled at its eighth issue. As a result, many plot threads in the series will never be resolved.
