Darkwing Duck #1

With a new creative team, Darkwing Duck gets a new start at Dynamite Entertainment. Darkwing Duck #1 puts Gosalyn a little more front-and-center than some of the DW comics, with some good-intentioned help that doesn't go exactly as planned, and returns one of the show's classic villains when Megavolt takes control of St. Canard through through people's cellphones (because... electricity?). Okay, so his plan doesn't quite make sense, but there's still plenty of fun to be had.

While I don't think Carlo Lauro's version of the characters has quite the same pop that James Silvani provided, he still captures the classic feel of the show with plenty of monologuing and shameless self-promoting from our hero provided by writer Amanda Deibert. The good news is Darkwing is back in action from a major publisher once more. Let's get dangerous!
