Darkwing Duck Annual A cover

Lineart by James "Pantsless Ducks with Guns" Silvani
Cross-hatching and colours and general art direction by me :)

This was my suggested layout for the page to really parody The Killing Joke down to the last detail.
They ended up using the regular DWD logo at the top, but kept the names of the creative teams pretty much as I did them here.
They also used a more high-hue version of the colours, this is the version that is based more closely on the Brian Bolland's original colour scheme.

"It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for...it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?"

PLAYTIME'S OVER!

There really is something unnerving about seeing a cartoon character from my childhood in this context, but it's oddly appropriate. Very fine work, thanks for sharing!

Wow... This is just absolutely amazing! I love the detail, and honestly, I love the idea of having Quaker-Jack being as absolutely insane as the Joker. Fantastic pic.

See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum...and one night, one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum any more. They decide they're going to escape! So, like, they get up onto the roof, and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moon light...stretching away to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem. But his friend, his friend didn't dare make the leap. Y'see...Y'see, he's afraid of falling. So then, the first guy has an idea...He says "Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!" B-but the second guy just shakes his head. He suh-says...He says "Wh-what do you think I am? Crazy? You'd turn it off when I was half way across!"

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who saw a similarity between the two.
