DuckTales #6

The final issue of the series continues the DuckTales/Darkwing Duck crossover "Dangerous Currency." Magica and the Phantom Blot have taken control of Duckberg and St. Canard mutating both cities with the magic and the blot's dark matter. The first issue for our heroes to solve is to find a cure for those infected, including Honker and Hewey, Dewey, and Louie, who have become classic Disney monsters and are wreaking havoc throughout the city.

Scrooge takes a sample of the dark matter to Gyro Gearloose's laboratory. Once a cure is found, the kids are saved, and Magica's plan is uncovered with the help of Gizmoduck, Darkwing Duck and the team can set their attention on stopping the real villains of the piece including an old Darkwing foe who returns on the final page.

A fun issue from beginning to end. I especially liked the classic Disney villains from Sleeping Beauty and Fantasia used here. My only complaint is the story concludes in Darkwing Duck #18 and then we have to say goodbye to these characters. Worth a look.

[Boom, $3.99]
