    Lauro beautifully captures the visual style of this world and its characters. The visuals are as fun and funny as the story and the art complements it really well. Read Full Review

    Darkwing Duck #1 is a fun-filled jaunt back into the world of St. Canard and it brings back childhood nostalgia for those who loved watching the show. It has exciting adventure, the return of familiar friends and foes of Darkwing Duck, and even an underlying lesson for both kids and adults.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 31, 2023

    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. Read Full Review

    It's remarkably good at capturing the tone of DW's cartoon adventures, with a few fun in-jokes and Easter eggs and art that stays on-model. Read Full Review

    Im giving it a really high score because this is pretty much everything you could ask for in a DW comic.

    Having seen most of the original series later on in life than childhood, I still am a big fan of the character and his world. The cover was pretty awesome but I wasnt sure how the very 90s series would fit into the modern world, and I wasn't sure if the art would match the zany style of the original while feeling fresh.

    Thankfully my concerns were alayed within the first few pages. Basically what you are getting here is a new season of Darkwing Duck, the first new epsioxe of rhe original series in quite some time with the small caveat that there are some modern references... being that characters have cell phones n more

    I grew up watching DW Duck, and this threw me right back to my childhood. Great art, fun stand alone story, so I'm assuming the next issues will tell one story per issue. Highly recommend for all ages.
