JUSTICE IS BLIND — AND SOGGY! Beware Morgana’s crystal ball! For within, there are visions of… uh, water? Oh wait, Darkwing’s teammate Neptunia is from the water — maybe that means something! But what? Without Launchpad’s compass to guide them, the Justice Ducks are all at sea.

    The return of the “Justice Ducks” storyline makes for one of the funniest issues of the series to date, with Darkwing Duck #9 hilariously seeing Darkwing Duck stalking the streets and failing his superhero efforts spectacularly. Deibert and Lauro are able to take the strengths of the original animated series and make the comic feel like an extension of the Disney Afternoon favorite. This can be both a strength and a weakness for the series, but luckily, this latest issue tends to lean more toward the former. It’s a delight to see Drake bouncing off other characters here, hero or otherwise, and the storyline seems to be ramping up into some interesting directions.

    The search for Launchpad‘s missing compass continues without any new leads as Darkwing Duck #9 offers a middle issue in the larger arc primarily centered around the terror who flaps in the night getting more and more agitated.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Darkwing Duck#9 , for the most part, is frankly disappointing. The Justice Ducks arc is being drawn out too long focusing more on in-fighting and personality clashes that any sort of fight against villainy. At this point, it wouldn’t be surprising if there ends up not being a villain. This story arc is lackluster at best compared to previous Darkwing comics. It’s disappointing because with more heroes, you’d expect a greater threat worthy of their combined forces, and they’ve just been bickering amongst themselves for three issues in a row without a trace of any villain in sight. Hopefully the story will improve, but it doesn’t seem likely.

    Comical Opinions

    DARKWING DUCK #9 treads water in an issue about nothing when Darkwing Duck moves from place to place at random while steadfastly refusing help. Deibert’s story is going nowhere, but Lauro’s art is excellent.
