TaleSpin was a short-lived comic book series published by Disney Comics, based on the series of the same name. It ran for a total of eleven issues, starting with a four-issue mini-series adapting the show’s multi-part “origin story” episode, “Plunder and Lightning” (or “Take Off”, as the comic adaptation titled it).
Following the positive reception of the mini-series, the TaleSpin comic became an ongoing series starting in April 1991. Bobbi J.G. Weiss was the writer for most of the comic, while the fifth issue was a comic adaptation of the episode “The Old Man and the Sea Duck”.
Unfortunately, due to the Disney Comics Implosion in late 1991, the TaleSpin comic was cancelled after only seven issues had been published. As a result of this, several planned stories that were to have revealed previously unseen background information on the characters; for instance the 13th issue was intended to reveal the origin of the Iron Vulture. Issue #7, the final issue to actually be published, notably explored Kit Cloudkicker’s backstory and revealed how he joined up with the Air Pirates prior to the beginning of the series’ events.
