Ok, I’ll admit, I haven’t read every book of the Darkwing Duck series from Boom Studios. It’s not that I don’t like them or I have something against the Disney character. The main reason is I haven’t had the chance to pick them up and I’m seeing that I need to start making time and money for them. I just finished reading Crisis of Infinite Darkwings and if you liked the afternoon cartoon, you will enjoy these series. No matter what your age is. All I can say is that St. Canard gets bigger and is filled with the same craziness that filled the show.
The art is spot on to what was in the cartoon. Boom Studios even acknowledges it in the beginning of the book. When you read it, you could easily take what’s on the page and put it on the TV when you’re doing your homework with a quick sandwich you threw together, getting frustrated over the fact that you have to show work in Algebra. DON’T THEY KNOW IT TAKES TOO LONG TO SHOW WORK? . . . But I digress, all of the voices match the characters. Their accents match what they all had and mixes well.
The action is the same fun that has always been a draw of the character and show. It’s very family friendly. You can see that the writers are going for all audiences. Any person can catch most of the jokes that are told. Some, if your kids get the joke, it’s not the writer’s fault. Now, here’s a challenge to any of my readers, try to look through each of the frames and try to pull out how many comic book characters and pop culture characters there are, I lost count. But, in my humble opinion, it’s a fun read to buy and read.
