Artist Imagines Darkwing Crew as Humans July 13, 2011

Imagine if St. Canard weren’t populated with ducks and dogs and all manner of animals.  What if Darkwing Duck was people?  An artist named E.D. Thweatt asked himself this question, and designed human versions of the Mallards and Muddlefoots,  and several other Disney  Afternoon characters.

Pretty keen!  I especially like how Launchpad and Gosalyn turned out.  I gotta say, Drake/Darkwing doesn’t look quite right to me.  His design doesn’t seem to preserve the same character traits and expressiveness as many of the others do.  Still, I think this is a bang-up job.

You can see more (including takes on Scrooge McDuck, Gadget Hackwrench, and Baloo) at Comics Alliance or the artist’s DeviantArt account.

The finale of the current arc has popped up.  Thanks to James Silvani, we have it in both color and his wonderful line work.  The cover hints at some mysterious, probably magical new villain.  Perhaps this links back to the end of the last arc?  Cover B will be posted when we have it.

DuckTales-Darkwing Crossover in Next DuckTales Arc July 6, 2011

Posted by John D. Moore in Comics News.

Is this long-awaited?  For many, I’m sure it is.  James Silvani gave us our first peek at his two covers for DuckTales issue 5 (out in September), also announcing the first large-scale DuckTales and Darkwing Duck crossover.  The first is one of the character-stuffed extravaganzas he does so well.  The second shows Scrooge and Darkwing fighting over Launchpad.  The two books are supposed to take place in the same continuity.  It’ll be interesting to see how Spector interprets Brill’s take on the TV duck universe.

One of the covers has surfaced in color:
