The Disney Afternoon was an anthology comic book published by Marvel Comics, relating to the syndicated programming block of the same name. It ran for ten issues from October 1994 to July 1995. It mainly featured stories based on Darkwing Duck, with a few stories based on Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin, and Goof Troop published throughout the comic’s run. Stories based on DuckTales and Bonkers, however, were relegated to 1- or 2-page gags.
Infamously, three Darkwing Duck stories published in the title (“Sleep Ducking” in issue #2, “Megavolt Pulls a Switch” in issue #4, and “Bad Medicine” in issue #6), all drawn by Andres Klacik, depicted St. Canard as having a population consisting mostly of humans, despite that the show never did such a thing. Even worse, the first of these stories featured Anna Matronic (who had previously only appeared in the episode “In Like Blunt” and the storybook The Silly Canine Caper) as a red-haired human woman resembling Dexter’s Mom from Dexter’s Laboratory.
