Format: Paperback
This cross-over between KaBoom's Ducktales and Darkwing Duck storylines served as a finale to both titles, as Disney decided not to continue their "Standard License" with Boom! Studios after 2011.

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.

When I bought this book, I was trying to ignore certain reviews. I heard it was very rushed with poor structure, but thank goodness I didn't listen! Despite what you might read from other reviews, this book is really good! It's finishes two storylines on both the DW and Duck Tales comic series. Although it's more about ending Darkwing.... The only question answered about Duck tales is who the heck Agent 44 is. But what the heck do I know, I've been keeping up on DW more than Duck tales! Anyway, the story isn't rushed, it's fast paced. It's one heck of a story to fit into 120 pages. I'm extremely statisfied. My only complaint is that some characters didn't get enough lines. Darkwing barely got any until the second chapter, and Morgana only got four! But everyone else got their fair share of lines, and the only one I'm disappointed about is Morgana. And she comes in at the last chapter, so it's easy to get over it.Overall, I definitely recommend this one.

Quackwerks, the leading business in St. Canard, is actually a dummy company as set up by Scrooge McDuck. So when an evil force takes it over, he heads out to find out what is happening. He's looking for Launchpad, which naturally takes him to the door of Darkwing Duck. But when evil ink/slime starts to turn the city evil, can they figure out the cause and stop it? And will retreating to Duckburg give them a chance to regroup?

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.

I first heard about the Darkwing Duck and DuckTales comics at Free Comic Book Day 2010. I saw issue #4 of Darkwing and bought it. It was a good story and what shocked me the most was seeing Scrooge McDuck at the end of the story. One year later, I saw this book here on Amazon and purchased it. Like the description said "The biggest Disney crossover in history" providing House of Mouse doesn't count. Anyways, all the Disney Afternoon characters from DuckTales and Darkwing Duck are in this book including Bubba Duck and the Genie from the DuckTales film. They even added Donald Duck into the story which is pretty cool and they made it like the way Carl Barks himself wrote a Scrooge McDuck story when Donald Appeared. It made me sad to hear this was the last issues of the comic. But at least it ended with a bang. 5 Stars!
