It’s Duck Tales 14, from IDW by way of Disney.

The tale this time is entitled The Monsters Are Due at McDuck Manor!, written by Steve Behling, with art by Gianfranco Florio.

The setting is McDuck Manor, exterior, daytime. Hughie, Louie, Dewey and Webby are playing Hollywood, making a horror movie. Things are going horribly. One wants to make a comedy instead. Later, cut to: interior, they are watching TV. Suddenly, thanks to the curiosity of youth, a gadget they are messing with transports them INSIDE the TV. They land inside, you guessed it; a real horror movie!!

The story is long and drawn out, and the drawings are okay, but the ducks seem to be ‘off model’, not resembling the widely accepted ‘Carl Barks’ duck cartoon look. It’s a dark and stormy night, and maybe you will want to pull out a different comic to keep you cosy.

IDW, Duck Tales #14, $3.99, all ages

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!!
