"Worldwide Rescue" pits the team against their old nemesis, Fat Cat, who's gotten his paws on a long-dormant mind control device, but while the series's familiar blend of comedy and action hasn't changed, the stakes are higher and the tone is darker. There are new and decidedly noirish elements in the mix: a frequent use of flashbacks, a morally compromised former good guy, and the (off-panel) death of a supporting character. In spite of these more mature elements, it isn't really the story this time around that grabs me, but the Rangers themselves: it's a pleasure seeing once again how this clashing, contradictory bunch of oddballs makes up a team greater than the sum of its parts. Ian Brill's dialogue (right down to Zipper's pictographic buzzing) perfectly captures each character's voice; Leonel Castellani's drawings give the figures and their backgrounds a warm but sculptural quality; it's a more rounded, slightly old-fashioned depiction of furry characters that evokes the traditionalism of Disney animation in the 1980s (before the extreme stylization of "The Ren & Stimpy Show" conquered all). Castellani's elegant, gorgeously rendered artwork complements the more emotionally realistic tone of the story, but it's Fat Cat himself that seems the most retro, if not timelocked, thing about this story arc; while the Rangers have evolved since 1989, he hasn't. It's in the second Kaboom story arc Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers: Slippin' Through the Cracks that full-fledged Ranger Noir gets the Disney imprimatur -- but that's another story.
