Darkwing Duck Issue 4 in Stores Today! September 22, 2010

Posted by John D. Moore in Comics News.

Had the series not been turned into an ongoing, Darkwing Duck would be hanging up his cape indefinitely once again.  But this is just the end of the beginning, my friends.  We have (hopefully many) more adventures to look forward to in this fantastic series that has surpassed my own high hopes and expectations.  Issue number 4 of The Duck Knight Returns is out today, September 22, 2010.

So what’s in store for St. Card’s purple-clad protector?  If you caught the issue 4 preview last Friday, you may have a clue.  But will this be the end of Quackwerks?  Can Darkwing dispose of this foe once and for all?  Will St. Canard return to exactly what it was before costumed heroes and villains And does Negaduck’s hand over Darkwing’s head in this week’s awesome A cover suggest something actually pertinent to the plot?

I don’t know!  I’ll be picking my copy up from Night Flight Comics and reading it as soon as I can this afternoon.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to put together some analysis and reflection on this first arc in Darkwing’s fabulously fitting comic revival over the weekend.  Newsarama has written a glowing review of this issue and the whole book.  Feel free to contribute your thoughts once the book is in your hands!

Order online! Cover A, B, C (pulp variant by Amy Mebberson)

Another epic issue. I’m really excited for what’s to come, and the appearance of the characters who haven’t showed up, yet — J. Gander Hooter, Steelbeak, Gryzlikov, etc.

This is a good issue! Lovely art, an incredible amount of action. I’ve already read it twice! I’ll have to work up some more in-depth thoughts later.

Looking forward to the return of many characters as the series progresses. Despite the fact that we now have seen his suit, I’m really hoping we get to see the real Fenton Crackshell-Gizmoduck before too long. Since FOWL and SHUSH both seem to have more or less dismantled, it should be interesting to see how Brill and company work them back in.
