One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers #1

GOOD THING: This issue starts right in the middle of the action, with animals around the world going crazy and the cause of it all harkening back to a pre-Rescue Rangers group founded by a young Monterey Jack and Gadget's father.

BAD THING: Surprisingly, this issue is missing a lot of the subtle humor for the adults that most of The Disney Afternoon series were famous for and it's played a lot more straight - so far - than the recent Darkwing Duck title. There's little bits of humor, sure, but there's also some surprisingly serious turns that seem out of place in a kid's title, like Chip's accusations of Monterey being past his prime.

The Final Verdict: A solid start, though surprisingly lacking in humor. This promises to be a good action/adventure series for young readers, though there's little to keep the parents reading but nostalgia.
