    Major Spoilers - Brian Jul 24, 2010

    I've enjoyed reading this title so much; I've asked my LCS to add it to my pull list from now on. This is the first and only comic on my list that is targeted toward a younger demographic. It is a very easy title to get into with only two issues out but they make it even easier by adding a "Previously in Darkwing Duck" section to the back of the front cover. Right now is a great time to get into a cartoon comic book (see my Batman Beyond #2 review for more cartoon fun). I give this comic five out of five stars because every time I read it, it puts a smile on my face, it's visually appealing, very well written, full of nostalgia, and makes me eager to run to the comic shop for the next issue.

    As only the second issue of an ongoing (this was originally to be a 4-issue mini, but was recently "upgraded"--and the cover proclaims this boldly) it'd be well worthwhile to track down the first issue as well as this, and be in on the ground floor for some real magic. Read Full Review

    Silvani also blends his work well with Brill's writing, getting across visual jokes like the grumpy look of the retiree or the insanity of Quackerjack when Negaduck is mentioned. They're a very smooth team, working in harmony to make "Darkwing Duck" another winner for BOOM! The company continues its track record for great comics based on films and TV shows. I can't wait until next issue! Read Full Review

    IGN - Miguel Perez Jul 22, 2010

    Darkwing Duck #2 continues right where last month's issue left off, delivering a fun, accessible story with plenty of laughs along the way. My only major complaint is the book felt rather rushed, especially considering the more methodical pace set by the first issue. One example of this is the way in which Darkwing gains access into the crimbot factory. The plot device works well enough within the context of this all-ages title, but there are more clever ways the goal could have been achieved. If you enjoyed the particular brand of humor that was present last month then you'll find this installment delivers more of the same. There's also plenty of absurd imagery to accompany the good-natured jokes. The guard flamingos in particular had me in stitches. Even if you don't have the same nostalgic connection to the character like I do, Darkwing Duck is worth a read. You'll be surprised how much fun you're having. Read Full Review
