The GoodAs with all BOOM! Kids/Disney books, the art and color are top notch. If you're new to Darkwing Duck like I was (yes, I know it's hard to believe, somehow I just missed it when it aired), you can easily jump into the story and characters. Like the title suggests, Darkwing Duck has been out of action for a bit. Could there possibly be anything that would bring him out of retirement?
New and old fans will also be please with the (re)introduction of the key players. We see some flashbacks while also seeing what the heroes and villains are up to now.
The BadAre you looking for Darkwing Duck in action? You're not really going to get much in this issue. It's understandable that being the first issue, the events need to be set up. This isn't a huge complaint. It does work on some levels. You don't necessarily want to jump straight into the action, unless you're already familiar with the character.
The Verdict - 4.5/5Even though I had never watched the cartoon, I was looking forward to this. I did see episodes of Ducktales before and had a feeling this would have been something I'd like. Again, how I missed it when it aired is beyond me. I mentioned the art and colors are top notch. We have a nice introduction to the characters and the story sets up why we haven't seen Darkwing Duck in action for a while (even if only comic book time has passed). While I would've liked to see more Darkwing action in this issue, everything is set up for next issue including an interesting cliffhanger. If you've ever watched the show, wanted to watch the show or have anyone in your life that would have liked the show, this is a comic you should pick up.
