Donald is still the underappreciated caretaker of Ducklair under the watchful eye of Uncle Scrooge.
As his alter ego Duck Avenger, he will have to deal with a new masked criminal. An unknown rooster, set after an unknown loot. It seems he evades everyone at every turn, and is as slippery as an eel. He also comes across Layla once again, but things are not what they seem with her. She seems to know far too much about our Duck Avenger himself. Of course the story would not be complete if you didn’t have Angus Fangus coming to disturb everything. How will out favorite Duck Avenger escape this vile villain?
It’s always great to see a Donald Duck story dipped in futurism. Giant computers, VR dream sets, robotic foes… It does not get any better than this. The story was fun to read, and had great suspense moments. The overall story was really well written, and I really enjoyed the story. It’s always a joy to return to ones roots, and take out some time for Donald.
The art is standard Disney as we know and love, so there is nothing to remark about it. It’s just great, and I feel it will never change. Disney has always been my first comics as a child. The stories of Mickey, Donald and the gang were the colorful background to my childhood, and to this day 30 odd years later, it still is. And that is what I love…they stay with the classic form of comic, no need for fancy updates, or weird new designs. Classics are sometimes all one needs!
