He is the terror that flaps in the night…He is the ferocious fowl who plucks the evil eye from the face of foul play…He is Darkwing Duck! Alongside his trusty sidekick Lauchpad McQuack, Darkwing hyper-vigilantly defends St. Canard from the dastardly, devilish demons who would wage wanton war! By night, our caped defender lurks in the shadows, striking fear (and maybe confusion?) in the heart of the criminal underworld…but by day, no one suspects that Darkwing is also mild-mannered Drake Mallard, a well-meaning father to his adorable adopted daughter, Gosalyn! Can Darkwing successfully navigate his two separate lives, all while looking incredibly cool and impossibly handsome? (Hint: Probably not, but…) You’ll have to read to find out!

QUACKERJACK! Nefarious ne’er-do-well, and bane of Darkwing Duck’s existence! With his cadre of silly-yet-dangerous (but mostly silly) toy weapons, Q-Jack (as the kids call him) aims to reign terror upon the citizens of St. Canard! Normally, D-Wing (as no one calls him) is great at focusing on fending off the criminal element…but at the moment, he’s particularly overprotective of his daughter Gosalyn. SO overprotective, in fact, that he’s considering…RETIRING FROM BEING A SUPERHERO!?!?!?!

The Pulse.

I found this debut issue fun. It evoked the tone of the animated series quite well. As such, it would seem to be better tailored to younger readers or older readers looking for a genuine nostalgia hit. I’ll introduce to this my kid, but I don’t think I’m the right audience for this kind of toned book. I’m sure it will be find an audience without me. Nil rating.
