When I reviewed issue #6 of IDW’s DuckTales comic I said it was my new favorite issue. Well now, it is my second favorite issue because Issue #7 has stolen that spot! This will be a spoiler free review of Issue #7, but you can expect a spoiler filled review on episode 16 of the DuckTalks Podcast.
This issue dives into the relationship of Scrooge and Louie. In the pilot of DT17 it appeared Dewey and Scrooge would have the most in common due to how adventurous they both are. Then issue 6 came around and you could see that Scrooge related to Huey’s intelligence. Well “There Is No Place Like A Ghost Town!” Makes sure we don’t forget about Louie and Scrooge’s desire for treasure. I love that the nephews each have a trait that allows them to relate with Scrooge. It adds a whole new dimension to their relationship that the classic show was missing.
The second story, “The Stone Of Truth!” was my favorite from this issue. The kids appear to be home alone (I mean, why would that not make for a good story!?) and someone strange shows up at their mansion’s door. The issue ends with our favorite cameo of the series, and we hope this leads into more stories involving a certain character.
If you haven’t picked up the comic before, this issue is a great jumping on point. All of the stories are self-contained. You can find DuckTales #7 at your local comic shop or at Comixology.com (amazon.com).
