Out alone patrolling at night, Darkwing Duck answers the alarm at the library where it is being robbed by Steelbeak. He claims he was doing it to get Darkwing's attention because he desperately needs the hero's help. Seems that F.O.W.L. High Command has come up with a horrid plan to take over the planet, and only Darkwing can stop them. The catch is, has Steelbeak really turned his back on his old organization, or should Darkwing Duck trust him?
While I must admit my favorite episodes of the show always revolved around the Fearsome Five, either alone or together, it was nice to see F.O.W.L. play into the third of the comic book stories. There are some very fun scenes as Darkwing and Steelbeak infiltrate the secret headquarters. The final part was a bit predictable and at the same time pretty wacky, even for Darkwing, but I still enjoyed it.
They are keeping with comic book continuity here, so those who have read the first two will enjoy some references to those stories, but you don't need to read them to enjoy what happens here. And they leave us with a nice cliffhanger that will make you anxious for the next book.
These continue to be pleasing comic books for those of us who have fond memories of the TV show.
