Chip ‘N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers catalogues the adventures of Chip, Dale, Gadget, Monterey Jack and Zipper during their quest for a cure to an unknown illness that is causing their fellow animal inhabitants to act a bit wild, in one scene almost turning zombie-like. Interspersed with flashbacks, very apropos, the series also looks to develop the titular Rescue Rangers a bit more as characters than their after school timeslot allowed.


The comic itself is a bit hard to follow at times. Strange cuts and abrupt shifts without the necessary transitions are jarring to say the least. The book opens with a very effective flashback that is later touched on to great effect, but midway through the Rescue Rangers encounter a bit of difficulty in their journey and plummet over a waterfall. This is laced with a quick cut that makes it very unclear if this is a flashback or a flash-forward or perhaps a misprint and this segment was meant to be included earlier in the story.
