The "Dangerous Currency" story is the icing on the delicious 7-layer cake that was the Darkwing Duck comic book series, written by the remarkably-talented Ian Brill and primarily illustrated by the equally-talented James Silvani. For fans of the classic TV series, this comic book series was an inspired ride that not only invoked strong feelings of nostalgia, but built upon the strong (though somewhat erratic) foundation of the source material. Brill masterfully reconciled the seemingly contradictory accounts of the origins of Darkwing and some of his key villains. While being faithful to their portrayal in the show, he also gave them an emotional depth not often seen on Saturday mornings.
A common criticism of this particular story arc is the fact that it feels too rushed. The reason for this is that Brill did not originally intend to end the Darkwing series with a Ducktales crossover. Rather, the crossover would occur with an entirely different plot conflict than the one seen in this book and would not be burdened to resolve all the loose ends left in the Darkwing series. However, knowing that this crossover would have to be the grand finale, Brill pulled an audible and essentially combined (at least) two planned story arcs into one big 4-issue epic. In the arc's completed state, the story pacing moves at a mile-a-minute, leading you to think the main villain is one classic Disney rogue until an even greater threat arises near the end of the third chapter. For those who might be unacquainted with the Darkwing series, I can understand why this plot twist might feel too abrupt.Read more ›
I've been following the Darkwing Duck comics since I heard about them and enjoying a part of my childhood continued. This book suffers from trying to do too much. Since Disney decided not to renew their contract with Boom! Studios, they had to wrap up everything they've been doing in the comics. While I liked seeing Darkwing's character and how the changes in him contributed to the climax, the story was too rushed. There were some strange jumps in scene that kept me confused as well.
Fans of either show will be glad they read it, but it's so fast paced that it doesn't have the character we've come to expect from the books. It's good, but not as great as it should have been.
