BRAND NEW SERIES! Super Duck is the greatest hero of Ducktropolis. Brash, arrogant and virtually unbeatable, he's defeated all threats to the city and routinely foils the schemes of his greatest rival, criminal genius and corporate billionaire Dapper Duck. But now, three years later, Super Duck has fallen on hard times. Down on his luck and with his superheroing days a distant memory, he is reduced to appearing at comic conventions for measly appearance fees. So when he's approached by a rival of Dapper to be his personal bodyguard/accompany him on his many adventures, Supe has to decide if he's ready to don his cape once more in this series more

    With a wholesome history and even more chaste looking main character, it would be easy to assume that Super Duck is an all-ages property. But there's plenty of mild swears, deranged violence and over-sexuallized birds in this book to be rated PG-13 at least! So parents, if you find this title misshelved in the kiddies section of your favorite LCS, don't pick this up for your little one! Make this version of Super Duck a new addition to your personal grown-up collection! Read Full Review

    With a superfluous rating of M for Mature and a simplistic storyline, "Super Duck" #1 Doesn't get off the ground. Read Full Review

    So, there is a recognition of the older material, but Frank Tieri & Ian Flynn want to steer that character's legacy in a different direction. I was hopeful that it is not in the same direction as Spider-Ham, but the appearance of a Nick Fury type character has squeezed that hope out of me. Read Full Review

    It's unclear at this point who this miniseries is for, or if it will be a worthwhile read by the time things are done. Read Full Review

    For part 1 of a 4 part series, not much happens in this issue. Perhaps it will be worth reading in a trade. There's 16 pages of main story here with a 4 page back-up. This issue can be summarized as "Supper Duck fights a bad guy". There's a cliff hanger at the end but it's a trope that will be familiar to any supper hero fan. On a positive note, the art is great and they nail the Disney aesthetic they're going for.

    I knew nothing about Super Duck prior to this comic. I picked it up based on the premise and the mature rating had me thinking the plot could go to a dark and serious place. The mature content amounts to jokes that would go right over a kid's head (imagine the jokes a financial analysts would make at a party) or visua more
