The most Darkwingest comic ever!
“I am the wall that crashes your light cycle!”
“I am the crime that is anything but elementary!”
“I am jukebox, unplugged to try another flavour!”
“I am the can of spinach you cannot open!”
“I am the Romance that always ends badly!”
They are all Darkwing Duck (sorta).

Darkwing Duck #8 is the conclusion to the multiple Darkwing storyline “Crisis on Infinite Darkwings.” This has the most versions of Darkwings yet, and finally feels infinite. From the opening page with Dr. Who. Optimus Prime, and Lion King versions of Darkwing all being captured in the epic fight, this comic provides a who’s who’s and where’s waldo of visual parodies.

The war of the Darkwings has begun as Negaduck and Magica de Spell have manipulated the multiples to fight each other. Alternate versions of Darkwing are being taken down by Quiverwing Quack as the real Darkwing and his pals are fighting chainsaw wielding Negaduck and his evil cohort in an underground lair.

One of the strengths of this book is that it feels like each issue could have been an episode of the show. Again in this issue the cast of villains is littered with characters from the cartoon source material. Megavolt’s Tronsplitter is a key tool to saving the day from a super sized villain.

Writer Ian Brill has captured the feel of Darkwing Duck. Artist James Silvani, Colorists Andrew Dalhouse and Lisa Moore render cartoon friendly versions of this Midnight Mallard which provides beautiful nostalgia in these new comics.

This is a fun comic for kids, but also fun for their parents.

While this is a great conclusion to a nice arc, the last few panels set up the next story. Darkwing continues to move forward and continues to provide comics worth looking forward to. If you haven’t read any of the Crisis of Infinite Darkwings arc then you should grab the back issues and enjoy.
