Of course, not everyone's pleased about it....

One under the cut, introducing....

So we have Ducktor Who, Darkwingus Prime, The Lion Duck, The Jonas Ducks...

As someone who has NEVER seen the cartoon, how accessible is this comic? It looks fun.

First off, I really recommend checking out the cartoon. Gold standard Disney cartoon, right up there with Gargoyles.

And the comic is definitely accessible to non-fans; there isn't any really major in-jokes from the cartoon in it, and while it helps to know the characters, you pick up their attitudes pretty quick.

One of the great things about the DwD cartoon is that if you're at all familiar with any sort of pulpy detective, spy, mask-wearing hero, superhero/comic book conventions, or hell any sort of pop culture you will find lots of humor. And while it's filled with spoofs of innumerable Comic book, television, film & radio characters, these characters, the denizens of St. Canard, remain unique, memorable and endearing.

One thing you will miss having not seen the show, is the epic voice-acting of Jim Cummings. Nothing beats having that Negaduck voice in the back of my mind as I read. Sex, drugs, chocolate? Nothing.

Mmm, Nega-voice. 8D''

But really, I hear ALL of their voices (DW, Gosalyn, Launchpad, even Magica!) when I read this comic, as if it's an actual episode. The jokes, the commentary...it's uncanny.

These guys did what the fans wanted them to do. They got it right.
