The Batman Connection Returns November 4, 2010Posted by John D. Moore in Comics News.
Issues 7 and 8 of the Darkwing Duck comic will be coming out in December 2010 and January 2011, respectively, and will conclude the Crisis on Infinite Darkwings arc. Each one has a B cover that cleverly references a classic Batman cover.
Issue 7’s B cover features Darkwing Duck and Gosmoduck–Gosalyn wearing the Gizmoduck suit–in a clear reference to Batman and Boy Wonder Robin from the cover of the very first Batman issue, Spring 1940.
Issue 8’s B cover features classic images of Darkwing Duck, Launchpad, Negaduck, and some girl in a dress in place of Batman, Robin, some dude, and some girl in a dress from Batman #227, from December 1970. This cover itself is an homage to a Detective Comics cover from September 1939. More details on this cover at this blog. Issue 227 is one of the most valuable and highly sought Batman comics from its era.
Thanks to Old Haunt forum member pa83 for helping to track down the issue 8 reference!
