It'd be funny if they just keep dragging the Quackerjack doll around to keep the Fearsome Five name, although I can't see Negaduck standing for that any long.
Hey, he can just take Quackerjack's share of the loot.
"Well, I do admit he's smarter and less annoying now..."
There's always Legacy Character.
I have to say I think more could and probably should have been done with Ledger!Jack before writing him off. It seemed sort of odd to make him that much darker and creepier in the core book, only to suddenly make him sympathetic and sad and then take him out in an annual.
Meanwhile, Bushroot, who used to be the F5 with the most pathos (although never with the team but in his solo episodes, which always struck me as sort of odd) and sympathetic beats, seems to have gotten the short end of the stick, characterization-wise, in the comics so far. I hope they flesh him out a bit more soon enough, because he really worked well in that way.
I blame peer pressure.
As much as I love the Five, I hope they will get more stories solo for better individual focus. Especially Liquidator.
He's had more deranged faces in the comics, yeah.
Maybe the Quackwerks genocide of all their office potted plants embittered him to Poison Ivy levels of misanthropy.
Read the new issue.
Fist issue of Darkwing: Negaduck locks DW in prison and that pretty much it, rest is set up and reminder that guys like SHUSH or Muddlefoots exist. Second issue: Action, action, action.
The only sub-plot going on is Mortimer sneaking around prison and his meeting with Fluffy which invokes serious Furry Confusion, even if writers keep him in shadows for some reason.
Fights are quite cool, Muckduck looked nice, and my favoruite part was fight with Camille. She actually fooled me for a second. Anyone can name all cameos? And cameos of villains keep piling up. Admit it, no one here heard before of Rabbit Racer.
My one problem is Suff-Rage who from what I heard was mocked for her name in omnibus. So they've come up with better one and that is.... Mistressterious? Really? Laaaaame. I guess they wanted to remove election part from her name, but that's not necessary. She still has power to control people, she could make slogans and puns like Liquidator or Tuskernini.
There are also villains bios for Liquidator, Megavolt and Negaduck. Reminder for newbies is good, though I wish they could reveal something new. The only interesting thing is implication that Darkwing liberated Negaverse when he destroyed cake portal.You know, in that episode where Negaduck got sucked into that weird reality hole and then came back anyway?
...Did Camille turn into SATAN in that top right panel!?
Looks like. I see Comet Guy, Flarg from Battle of Brainteasers, Satan, King from Paraducks, E. Thaddeus Rockwell from Twitching Channels, Nodoff (I think ??), Ordinary Guy from Planet of the Capes, Banana Boy from Mutantcy on the Bouncy, and Wacko from When Aliens Collide.

I'm waiting until the trade paperback rather than buying the individual comics, but so far this sounds really good and chock-full of interesting villain cameos.
Well, third issue was released. I guess I should expect how this will end, but I'm a bit disappointed with how little answers we got.
Though, I'm glad that "Mistressterious" was terrible name on purpose. Now I wonder if she will stick to it, or keep changing them.
And speaking of female villains getting changed, Isis got a new look. Any thoughts?
I think when it comes to her infatuation with Darkwing, she needs to let it go.
When will we meet her younger powerless sister?
I do like how she says that dresses made of ice "are a thing now, trust me" despite just stating she's been frozen for so long and doesn't know what's contemporary a few panels prior.
"Orange Is the New Purple" is over and we finally get first one-issue story in a very long time: "A Midsummer Gnat's Spree". Seeing how cover promised "the most dangerous villain" but also showed that said villain has antennas , I was sure that it will be Lilliput. But nope, it's a new guy, Gnatmare.
Neat name, though pun occasionally slips by me and I hear it as "bug-(female)horse". I kinda liked it, it felt a lot like old episode, I only found meta-humor to be on the nose, like Herb commenting that he's sure that Pelican's Island will definitely have satisfying ending. Last story did that too. And I don't think Megavolt uses term Deus ex Machina correctly.
And there's ending where some comic guy gets message "if you fail at first, try again". Oh, I see what you did there, guys.
Oh, and more villain files: Quackerjack, Dr. Fossil and One-Shot.

Now that was interesting issue.
"Kitty Cat Caper" was simply adaptation of "Kitty Kat Kaper" (original spelling is even referenced by file D. W. held at one point), more specifically it's upgraded version posted online. It keeps practically every scene, joke and alliteration, just adding few bits here and there. It's as far opposite of what they did in Omnibus as you can get. The only major change was replacing Steelbeak and Quackerjack with Jambalaya and Moliarty and making whole story narrated flashback, like in "Beauty and the Beet". Even making Fluffy more adorable is more in line with what writer wanted. So, a good story overall, and with much better art then original.
We also get files on Darkwarrior Duck, Cat-Tankerous and Splatter Phoenix who is revealed to be actually named Melody Amber Phoenix. Or was that ever mentioned in show? File also bring up that she couldn't think of better way to get money using her magic paint then theft.
Okay, I know this topic is mostly me posting over and over, but this is important.
First, Volume 1 is already released. They decided to make it only 4-issues long.
Second, it's not selling well. Comic will be probably canceled after 8 issue.
Well, I'm definitely getting the book, at least. I guess there's just no more market for Darkwing Duck...
I understood the Boom! series sold fairly well. Maybe it's a matter of Joe's Comics not being as able/big as a publisher.
Facebook comments suggest that it was badly advertised and that comics were often hard to find in stores.
Hopefully they can turn things around, but it's probably too late...
I got my trade paperback of Orange is the New Purple today, and I really enjoyed it. I really like the greater emphasis on action this series has compared to the 2010 run.
I have all the Boom! issues (at least, up until the Ducktales crossover, which is the last one I think?), and most of them are pretty good, though there is a decline in quality, especially the Ducktales crossover, which has some glaring errors which are obvious to anyone familiar with Ducktales.
It is and I agree, each arc is a bit weaker than a previous one. Did you heard about the remastered edition?
No, I didn't, not sure which one I have (I have the bound books, with one storyline per book). How can you recognize it?
