* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Well, it's obvious that Darkwing fights two infamous Disney villains from other comics: Magica de Spell is Scrooge[= McDuck=]'s enemy, and the Phantom Blot is known to be Mickey Mouse's arch nemesis. Conversely, in Boom's concurrent ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' comics, John D. Rockerduck hires Darkwing's enemies Moliarty and Camille Chameleon, as mercenaries to stop Scrooge, Launchpad, and his nephews from getting Scrooge's treasure back.

** In "Campaign Carnage," Suff-Rage torments Darkwing by asking what he is afraid of, and changing him to match her questions. When she asks if he is afraid that he is not original, Darkwing then gains multiple heads with the likenesses of his alternate selves from the "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings" arc, many of which were examples of CaptainErsatz and NoCelebritiesWereHarmed. In other words, the comic is mocking itself for having so many of Darkwing's alternate selves be based on copyrighted characters and celebrities. The Joe Books revision takes it a step further, by having Darkwing and Launchpad make fun of Suff-Rage's name.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Dangerous Currency will become this due to the omnibus published by Joe Books omitting the last two issues of the original comic and making an entirely new story in its place. It's been stated by some correspondences with Aaron Sparrow that, to begin with, the story was published without Disney's approval and that a new crossover might be written later, but only time will tell.

* RedHerring: The revised version of the "Campaign Carnage" arc in the Joe Books omnibus, at first seems to have changed it, so that Suff-Rage is Morgana [=McCawber=] after a FaceHeelTurn, due to referring to Darkwing as "Dark," and her helmet matching the shape of Morgana's hair (the latter actually being the case in the original Boom version), [[spoiler: but it turns out that she is still Constance A.

In 2010, nearly 2 decades after ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' went off the air, Disney revived the franchise with the announcement of a brand-new four-issue comic miniseries, later expanded to a ongoing monthly comic series, published by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]]. Unfortunately, the comic book was cancelled in 2011 after 18 issues due to Creator/{{Disney}} obtaining ownership of Creator/MarvelComics and revoking Boom's license to make comics based on Disney properties. Boom! managed to weasel the publication of a few more issues to conclude the story arc they were publishing at the time, ''Dangerous Currency,'' even after they had lost the license; [[DidntThinkThisThrough Bad Idea]]: not only has Disney sued Boom! for this, ''Dangerous Currency'' has never been reprinted anywhere ''in the whole world'' ever since, and Disney constantly hammers that it's now "non-canon".

In February 2015, the first 16 issues of the Boom! Comics Darkwing Duck series and both stories in the single annual issue were reprinted as a trade by Joe Books Inc., rewritten by original editor Aaron Sparrow to better fit the show's tone and featuring a new epilogue. This was followed with a new ongoing series written by Sparrow and produced by Joe Books, the first issue of which being released in May 2016.
