From IDW comes Disney Afternoon Giant, consisting of two continued stories: DuckTales: Rightful Owners Part 1, starts off.

It’s written by Warren Spector, with artists Leonel Castellani, Jose Massaroli and Magic Eye Studios.
This one is all about Uncle Scrooge. Scrooge is opening a museum exhibit’s showing of The Scrooge McDuck Collection. Scrooge drops in by parachute from a stunt plane but is soon debating his success with a competitor, John D. Rockerduck. The two exchange barbs and Scrooge’s enthusiasm for his many acquisitions pales a bit.
It’s a long story, with more than the usual helping of ‘modern new age guilt’, but entertaining and nicely told. There is a lot of dialogue in this one.

The second story is Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, part 1. It’s written by Ian Brill, with artist Leonal Castellani again…

Briefly, Chip ‘n’ Dale are on a mission to track down a powerful drug that is affecting animals. Originally developed to help animals defend themselves, it’s gotten out of hand. This is a fun story, with plenty of adventure. Wonderful drawings of the animals throughout, and a pleasure to follow.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
