Publisher: Ehapa Verlag
Publication Date: May 1992 - 1998
German series that was used to reprint material that was based on Disney's various animated series (DuckTales, Gargoyles, Tailspin, even Marsupilami etc.).
The series had 3 volumes published in 1992 that saw only limited distribution in certain areas - most likely around Stuttgart (where the publisher once had their headquarters) and Berlin.
The official launch was in 1993 with volume 2/93 (which confused several people as there was no volume 1).
The series started as a pocket book series and was quite similar to the American Disney Adventures series. Alongside the comic stories they printed stuff about what was interesting (or seemed interesting) for teenage boys - Wrestling, martial-arts and action movie actors such as van Damme, Schwarzenegger or Stallone (which was strange, as most movies had a much higher rating than the target audience for this series was allowed to watch).
Starting with issue 8/94 the series switched to standard issue format. With issue 4/98 they switched the format once more - to magazine. By this time the comic story part was demoted to a 16-page supplement and the series was canceled a short while after.
From 1994 to 1996 the competitor Bastei also published a badly-disguised clone - Sonic der Comic - that lasted 16 volumes/issue.
