IDW Publishing announced launching of Disney Comics, a new line of comics featuring Disney’s anthromorphic animal characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

The comics line will hit stands in April with Uncle Scrooge #1, with a Donald Duck series in May and Mickey Mouse in June. September will see IDW resume publication of the long-running Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories series with issue #723.

Marvel chose to be silent on Disney Comics line being licensed out to another publisher and is not kept under the Marvel/Disney roof. Uncle Scrooge #1 features the reprinting of a classic Italian Uncle Scrooge tale from the 1960s, but IDW says that series and the others will feature a mix of reprints and original stories over time.

In addition, IDW’s Disney Comics titled will have themed variant covers each month based on rides and sections of Disney’s theme parks, including Adventure land, Epcot, the Haunted Mansion, and more.
