Boom Studios 08 - robo-wolves

A robo-wolf is a robot in the shape of a wolf. There are at least two of them and they are in the possession of Negaduck.

History

Robo-wolves are mechanical wolves. If their similarity to wolves ends with their appearance or if they possess other qualities of the source creature is unknown. Negaduck owns a pair of them and like is the case for most of his equipment, it is not known how he acquired them. That said, they are notably similar to Anna Matronic's robo-hounds.

Notes

  • Cover #8B is an homage to the cover of Batman #227 from 1970, which itself is an adaption of Detective Comics #31 from 1939. The three key players on the covers are, from Detective Comics to Batman to Darkwing Duck: Batman - Batman - Darkwing Duck, the Mad Monk - Clifton Heathrow - Negaduck, and random woman - Daphne Pennyworth - Brigitte. The original cover is devoid of animal presence; it's the #227 that adds two bloodhounds or wolves. These are the inspiration for the robo-wolves.[1]
  • As an homage cover, the robo-wolves are not part of the actual story of the comic. When asked about the robots and the woman they are chasing, the cover artist and their designer, Diego Jourdan, answered: "They're robo WOLVES in any case. How about Brigitte for the female bird (not a duck!), after Brigitte Bardot? ;)".[2]
