Darkwing Duck #8
It's not every comic that gives you a swarm of vampire potatoes. Seriously, when was the last time you saw the Justice League or Avengers take on such a threat? They probably couldn't handle it. You know who can? Darkwing Duck!
Darkwing Duck #8 gives us St. Canard being overrun by evil sentient potatoes. All heroes are on hand to fight off the infestaion including Gizmoduck, Femme Appeal, Neptunia, and Stegmutt, while Darkwing Duck, his trusty sidekick Launchpad McQuack, and Goasalyn get to the root of the situation.
It seems Dean Tightbill, the former Dean of St. Canard University, has unearthed the vampire potato monster which even Bushroot is unable to control, for his get-rich scheme. The chaos that ensues once Posey is unleashed puts Darkwing and Bushroot on the same side for a change. Is this a one-time team-up? Or could Bushroot become less of a villain heading forward and even, dare I say it, a potential ally for Darkwing and company down the line? Worth a look.
