Forced to team up with his old foe, Steelbeak, Darkwing Duck is on the run from F.O.W.L., which is trying to resurrect the ancient force of evil known as Duckthulhu. As they try to escape, Launchpad McQuack and Morgana manage to track down F.O.W.L.’s operation to some of the simplest people in town, while Gosalyn and Honker set out to track down the villains’s home on their own. Ian Brill is bringing some pretty big ideas into this, and I don’t just mean the H.P. Lovecraft pastiche he’s got going on. He’s mixing up the character dynamics a bit, with Darkwing and Steelbeak forced together, and Launchpad and Morgana working as a team. James Silvani does some of his best work on this issue, with lots of little visual easter eggs, including references to assorted other Disney cartoons and movies, plus a few movies and characters far out of Disney’s wheelhouse. The book ends on a heck of a cliffhanger, as it usually does. Brill and Silvani are a fantastic team, and they’re doing some of the best work Disney comics have ever seen.
