Editor-in-Chief Len Wein's Marvel Comics-esque approach to the Disney characters was criticized by many Disney fans. The hiring of Wein has been championed by the comic book creative community as an alternative to the much disliked former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter who had made a favorable impression when interviewed by Disney management. Prior to the launch of the comics division Disney management proclaimed their intention to quickly become a dominant presence in the comic book market, competing with industry leaders DC and Marvel. These unreasonable expectations coupled with poor sales led to a mass cancellation in 1991. Echoing what had been called the DC Implosion of the 1970s Duckburg Times editor Dana Gabbard dubbed this the Disney Implosion. Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, Uncle Scrooge, and Donald Duck Adventures were the only surviving titles. (No indication has been given whether or not the fact that they survived had anything to do with Donald Duck being a starring character in all three.) Following the implosion, the three titles continued being published along with an occasional mini-series based on a TV show or a movie.

All the expansion plans were cancelled. The unpublished Touchmark inventory was sold to DC, which published some of the material as part of its new Vertigo line. Wein left and Marv Wolfman concentrated on being comics editor of Disney Adventures. In a mini-renaissance editors Bob Foster, Cris Palomino, and David Seidman brought an appreciation of the classic Disney characters to the three continuing titles.
