Issue #4, actually begins with the story 'No Time Like the Present,' where Count Duckula accidentally sends Castle Duckula back to prehistoric days, due to Nanny messing with the mystic clock (similar to what Duckula did in the animated episode, 'The Rest is History.'). The DM/Count Duckula crossover begins when Greenback kidnaps Penfold and takes him to Transylvania as a present for Count Duckula, only to be deceived by Dr. Von Goosewing, who unwittingly thinks Greenback's a rival vampire hunter.
The one problem I believe people had with the DM adaptations was this: in the animated series, DM and his animal friends, despite being anthropomorphic, were to actual scale of their real counterparts (this can be seen in episodes like 'Chicken Run.'). Whereas Kremer and Gallager put DM and Penfold into an anthropomorphic realm where everyone's standard size, sort of like a Marvel version of Duckburg, so to speak. Not that their was anything wrong with it, but many felt it wasn't quite true to DM's adventures.
Especially since most of the episodes dealt with DM dealing with the comic realm as opposed to the animated one. In fact, in a later issue, DM contacts Warren to publish a black and white page to foil Greenback's plan for controlling the white wonder.
Though not really a bad issue, Count Duckula #4 is great for the fact Warren and Mike do try keeping the stories close to their animated counterparts. The reason why I purchased this version was the fact of seeing Castle Duckula also travelling through time as well as space (makes you wonder if the Count was once a Time Lord once). I recommend this one mainly because it's fun to see how despite the differences, Warren and Mike do somehow makes it work.
A great artifact in Duckula memorabilia, and fun to see how Marvel adapted the tales of the Vegetarian Vampire Duck and World's Greatest Secret Agent.
