The first Darkwing Duck comic book was a 4-issue mini-series published by Disney Comics from September to December of 1991. Coinciding with the show's premiere on the Disney Afternoon and ABC, it featured "Brawl in the Family", a comic book adaptation of the show's two-part series premiere, "Darkly Dawns the Duck".
Like the TaleSpin mini-series before it, it was intended to serve as a launching pad (no pun intended) for a regular Darkwing Duck comic book. However, right when the mini-series came out, the Disney Comics Implosion occurred and resulted in the cancellation of most of the company's regular titles. Thusly, plans for a regular Darkwing title by Disney Comics were cancelled, and for the next three years, Darkwing Duck comics were featured only in Disney Adventures.
The "Brawl in the Family" story arc was fully reprinted in Disney's Colossal Comics Collection #4, and later reprinted again by Boom! Studios for the trade paperback Darkwing Duck Classics, which also contained the first four Darkwing Duck stories from Disney Adventures.
