    Get your protective bubble for this one. Unless you wants to be electrocuted, turn to a pulp, thrown across the room, knock out, drown, turn to an icicle , hypnotizes, or worst...chainsawed! Now there is actually two stories here, One is the “Orange is the New Purple” and the other is “A Midsummer Gnat's Spree. At the end are files of the villains: Negaduck (I disagree on the real name), Liquidator, Megavolt, QuackerJack (and Mr. Banana Brain), Bushroot (what no word on Spike), Steelbeak, Dr. Fos Get your protective bubble for this one.

Since the first story already been said. I'll add this instead to it. First I will tell Mortimer that I'am keeping an eye on him and his new pal. Your going to need a magnifier for this, look for Launchpad's cup (Curious), there are pictures in frames of other Disney characters in both stories (Gosalyn's hockey puck is covering it). The second story is about a gnat that got push around and now has decided to do his own pushing or it's more in the line of breaking and thrown around a certain hero. Either way he is probably the smallest villain (Besides that germ that is staring at us) and considered the strongest of all villains (Darkwing's aching back agrees). At the end is a certain inky character lurking and delivering an other present to probably a future villain. Other then that I will let you read or re-read it. Let the wind blow through the air Let the danger seek you out Let the nightmares come to you NOW!

    Finished reading #DarkwingDuck #OrangeIsTheNewPurple today... & I LOVED IT! It was the old 1990's series in print; picking up were the TV series left off. It was fun, funny & a good read for the whole family. Those old voices came back to mind as I read through the story. What made it even better were the files at the end of the graphic novel regarding each of Darkwing's villains. Good wholesome fun for you & for the family.

    The good ol nostalgia days of Darkwing are back. Disney Afternoon at it's finest with his witty introductions, villains that have you giggling, and of course his friends and family. The artwork is on point, the story line is great (and each one is finished in volume 1. No more to be continued..) Takes me back to my childhood. Any fan of Darkwing would love to read this.

    I love Darkwing Duck and this was a GREAT way to bring him back. The dialogue is fantastic and ALL the fun villains are here. I would love to see a new Darkwing Duck series, and I wouldn't be surprised if Disney + has one in mind. If you like Darkwing Duck, you should get this.

    There is a little too much re-hashing of previous DW comics here to keep me happy, though given that the 2016 re-launch made a much better effort to try to draw old TV fans back for support it is understandable why Sparrow & company would want to keep to the safer paths.

    This book collects the first four issues of the Joe Books Darkwing Duck series. The book kicks off with Darkwing catching Megavolt and the opening of a new prison which turns into a trap set by Negaduck which leaves Darkwing and Gosalyn trapped in prison with all of Darkwing's most dangerous foes. Negaduck gives Darkwing a head start and then it will be open season on him for his foes. This turns into Darkwing and (to an extent) Gosalyn fighting his foes. It's a fun and nostalgic ride.

It does let us know that for the Joe Books series everything Darkwing (including the TV series, the Boom Comic series, and even appearances in Disney Adventure are all in-continuity.) The next issue is a one-shot, "A Midsummer Gnatmare" which has Darkwing introduced to a new villain: The Gnat. It's fun with a little bit of nostalgia and it feels like a typical Darkwing Duck episode. Overall, this is a fun book. It's not quite as good as the Boom studios books, but it's an enjoyable piece of Darkwing Duck nostalgic.

    The Daring Darkwing Duck is definitely dangerous in this one! Loved the storyline, but hated that the comic got cancelled after the next arc!

    I've always thought Darkwing Duck had one of those awesomely "simple" costumes like the Question, Spirit, the Shadow, the golden age Sandman, and the Spider.

    Now, I KNOW that DD is based (at least partly) on Batman, and that's part of his goofy appeal. But to have a full issue based on Arkham Asylum?? Man, that is GENIUS and TOTALLY unexpected. I was genuinely impressed that a kids book was able to successfully pull it off!

With Aaron Sparrow writing, and James Silvani as the artist, the comics are part continuation of the on-going published by Boom! and part reboot of the series in general. In this first trade, we're primarily dealing with an arc focused around the opening of a new prison in St. Canard that is apparently "escape-proof" and just so happens to play host to all of the Masked Mallard's Rogues Gallery. However, given the amount of publicity that the opening of this new prison is receiving, is it possible that it's all just a front for something much more dastardly? Will the terror that flaps in the night be able to fend off the fearless fiends? Or will the criminally conniving convicts prove too much for the new scissors of a ribbon cutting that is... DARKWING DUCK! Okay, so I took a little bit of that from the blurb of the trade, but give me credit; trying to come up with awesome opening phrases for one of the best superheroes ever created is hard word. I am constantly in amazement at Sparrow's creativity in wielding the alliteration so favoured by DW. Sparrow's writing is consistently brilliant throughout the trade, keeping the tone of the original television series, while managing to keep the pace of tradition superhero comics and the wit fans of the terror that flaps in the night expect, and I found myself laughing at nearly every page. That doesn't lessen the drama when it appears, but there is a great balance within the stories that is largely well kept. I'll admit there's a couple of moments where the scales tipped in favour of the humour, but it's not necessarily a fault of the story, just a personal thing where I would have preferred more emphasis on the drama of those moments. James Silvani's art is fantastic. I had been following his tumblr for a long time, and was delighted to hear that he was involved in this new on-going. The art of the book is very vivid, looking so much like the show but still managing to be recognisable as Silvani's work. Honestly, considering that this year we're getting a brand new series of Duck Tales (oo-oo!), I am awash with anticipation for the announcement of a brand new television series of Darkwing Duck because... well, because it would be really cool and maybe we can have a crossover episode. To make up for the now struck from canon 'Dangerous Currency' arc from the Boom! collection Overall, I would say that Orange is the New Purple isn't quite a series that anyone could pick up - there's a lot of references to the last collection that could be easily missed - but that they would be remiss in not doing so because even with the references, it's very easy to pick up on what's going on and be taken along on the ride to find out what's going on with the Fascinating Fowl, his sidekick Launchpad, and the daring daughter. After all, when there's trouble, you call DW!

    I fondly remember Darkwing Duck as my favorite childhood cartoon and one of those that I will enthusiastically try to push upon my future children. And hey, who can fault me for that when D.W.'s vocabulary and (questionable) mastery over language is perfect educational fodder in the form of hilarious superhero antics? Sparrow and Silvani have captured all of that in this first volume (4 issues) of a new comic series that revives all of the chaos of Launchpad, obnoxious narration of Darkwing, and I fondly remember Darkwing Duck as my favorite childhood cartoon and one of those that I will enthusiastically try to push upon my future children.

Sparrow and Silvani have captured all of that in this first volume (4 issues) of a new comic series that revives all of the chaos of Launchpad, obnoxious narration of Darkwing, and go-getter personality of Gosalyn. The first arc starts with a bang - what if D.W. had to survive his entire rogues gallery at once?! - and ends with a hook that leaves you wanting for more. If you were a fan of the original Darkwing Duck cartoon, you owe it to yourself to pick up this collection. P.S. I'm starting to think that D.W. is at least partially responsible for my penchant to ramble on with far more words than necessary...

    It is such a joy to read more stories of Darkwing Duck, and this collection includes nearly every one of his villains. My only complaint... Darkwing Duck does not wear a tie!

    Darkwing Duck is back! Picking up where the Boom Studios series left off (minus the DuckTales crossover, though you barely notice that), this dumps fans right into the deep end, with a storyline that pits Darkwing against nearly all of his enemies, many of which only appeared once. Even obscure villains from Disney Adventures show up!

Good stuff, although I worry that even with the story providing quick backgrounds for the villains and their character profiles in the back, it may be hard for non-fans to enjoy. (A-)
