The fate of the Ducklair Tower is in your hands!
So, remember when I mentioned that the conclusion of the new Duck Avenger miniseries would be decided by a vote? Well, as it turns out, here's what the vote is going to decide:
(slight spoiler alert for some of the plot)
At some point during the climax of the story, the Duck Avenger will be faced with a choice. Ducklair Tower is under attack. Evronians are everywhere. And there may only be one way to stop them.
The Avenger is in 'The Omega Room', faced with a button that could destroy the Ducklair tower (and presumably the Evronian attackers with it). But does he press the button, BLOWING UP the Ducklair Tower, or does he face the Evronians head on, trying to defend the tower?
YOU CAN VOTE HERE, at least until Monday 14th at 12 pm (Italian time, presumably, which means UTC/GMT+02:00)
The option on the top ("Affrontare gli Evroniani...") means that the Duck Avenger will go and defend the tower.
The option on the bottom ("Premere il bottone...") means that he will press the button and destroy the Ducklair tower.
There used to be a clear majority in favor of defending the tower (which is why I never got around to sharing the story, as it seemed like a foregone conclusion anyway), but now it's suddenly an extremely close race. Probably because the writer Francesco Artibani has been campaigning for pressing the button, saying "Vote for the destruction - you won't regret it!"
So, how do you feel? Does it seem wrong to bring the Ducklair Tower back after so many years, only to immediately blow it up? Or are you excited by the idea of the PKNA universe moving forward instead of dwelling on the past - even if it means destroying one of the most important pieces of the PKNA universe itself?
Go and vote, in any case. I'm still sorry that I didn't share this earlier, but there's still time!
Personally, I'm split as hell. I can certainly appreciate that it is a bold move to press the story forward like that, but... dear god, all my childhood memories!
Oh well. We'll see how it goes.
