ducktales-5-coverThe last four issues of Darkwing Duck‘s adventures in Boom Studio’s comics begin here with part one of the four-part crossover between Darkwing Duck and DuckTales. Realizing something is amiss in St. Canard, Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, travel to find out what fate has befallen Scrooge’s former accountant Fenton Crackshell (the one-time super-hero known as Gizmoduck).

Locating Crackshell proves to be easy, dealing with a city gone mad thanks to the Legion of Eve-il is going to be far more tricky. Magica, the Phantom Blot, and Ammonia Pine have banded together and are magically altering the city into a the stuff of nightmares. Never fear, for Darkwing Duck is on the case!

The story is co-written by Warren Spector and Ian Brill and the art is also divided between Jose Massaroli and James Silvani. For having that many cooks in the kitchen it turns out quite well. I’d rather have a solo Darkwing adventure, but seeing as his days are numbered I’ll take all that I can get. Worth a look.
