Issue 5 in Stores Today October 20, 2010Posted by John D. Moore in Comics News.
It’s here! The second arc of the Boom! Studios Darkwing Duck comic, “Crisis on Infinite Darkwings,” has begun. Its first installment can be found at your local comic book shop starting today.
This one ships with two different covers (no rarer, pricier variants for the time being, it seems). The “A” cover is by Sabrina Alberghetti, who also gave us last month’s “B” cover. The “B” cover with Negaduck tearing through issue 1’s “B” cover is by series artist James Silvani.
The title “Crisis on Infinite Darkwings” is a playful reference to the Superman story “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” It’s fun seeing the comics follow an arc-naming convention similar to the show’s episode-naming.
So hurry into your local comic book shop and pick up your copies before they disappear! I’m afraid I won’t be able to pick mine up till Thursday, so I’ll just spend the next 24 hours or so wallowing in jealousy.
