PostSubject: PKNA: a parody?   Sat Oct 27, 2012 5:06 pm

Hi to all. Through years parodies take an important role in Disney, so PKNA could be considered one of them? A semi-serious homage like “Bram Topker’s Dracula” or “Mickey’s inferno”





or more an independent comics that has the right to be considered part of the superhero genre like Marvel comics?

Mhn, maybe the original project was quite a parody, but... thinking about it, you realize PKNA is more an hybrid, an experiment. The real parody to superheroes is the MODERN Duck Avenger OUTSIDE the issues of PKNA, PK2 and PK. And anyway, this project was too "serious" for being just a parody. Smile

So, it's not even a serie that wanted to be compared to Marvel or DC comics, just an experiment which blends lots of styles, not just the Disney and the superheroes comics one.

It's clearly propaganda.

I know some only in Netherlands published PKNA-DA stories.
Here´s one example:

They are very short ones, though...

I speak about parody, but I didn't want to be respectful.
in a parody i see two elements: re-engineering and humour.
The first is essential, but not always the final goal.
About the second: elements clearly recognizable are taken and developed to work in a new
environment, with a new set of rules. That's the central element, for me, in a Disney parody.
The goal is to make aware readers of not-so-obvious elements:
Mickey's inferno gives some input about the difficult friendship between
two Disney's icons like Donald and Mickey himself;
in PKNA Donald achieves a great maturity, without seems someone else.
Of course the series develops in a true combination of different elements,
but the first step is taking input quite common in superhero comics (aliens and time travels)
and throw them in Duckburg: play Marvel like some authors have said.

"A parody (play /ˈpærədi/; also called pastiche, spoof, send-up or lampoon), in current use, is an imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialise an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation." - Wikipedia

If it was a parody, it'd be a parody of the superhero genre. It couldn't be a parody of the original PK, because it's so completely different they're barely comparable, it's not imitating but rather re-inventing. It clearly does imitate the superhero genre, but there's a distinct lack of satire or irony in that imitation. To me it doesn't seem like PKNA is trying to comment on the genre, it's simply a part of the genre. The point is somewhere else. So no, by this definition I don't think it's a parody.
