The Dark Duck Returns in Darkwing Duck #1
Comic book readers were able to return to St. Canard last week as Darkwing Duck #1: The Dark Duck Returns hit shelves.
A new Darkwing series from Dynamite Entertainment, the first chapter in the series brought Darkwing, Launchpad, Gosalyn and even Honker, back to the forefront.
A 90s Classic
For those of you who don’t know, Darkwing Duck debuted over thirty years ago, as part of The Disney Afternoon. A spinoff of the popular Ducktales animated series, Darkwing Duck introduced us to the crime fighting mallard, along with slew of new characters including villains, Negaduck, Megavolt, Quackerjack and Bushroot.
Darkwing would prove to be a popular creation in his own right, starring in 91 episodes of his own show, and even making a triumphant comeback in the 2017 Ducktales reboot!
Now, “the terror that flaps in the night” has returned in a new comic book series.
Although I won’t spoil the plot of Darkwing Duck #1 for you, I will note that if you love the cartoon, you will definitely be fan of the comic book.
The setup for the first chapter sees Darkwing receiving an award from the citizens of St. Canard for his heroics. Unfortunately for the masked mallard, Megavolt is up to no good once again!
While this isn’t the first time the caped crusader has appeared in comic book form, Boom Studios previously released an eighteen-issue run, this will be Dynamite Entertainment’s first crack at the character.
With a team behind it who clearly loves the source material, I can’t wait to catch up with Darkwing and see what new adventures the duck billed hero faces.
Written by Amanda Diebert and illustrated by Carl Lauro, this nostalgic fun-filled return to St. Canard is truly a blast. Especially if you have loved Darkwing Duck as long as I have. So, let’s get dangerous!
You can get Darkwing Duck #1 now, wherever comic books are sold.
