The holidays are upon us and you know what that means: Ducks. Specifically Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck. We take a look at the very 1st appearance of Scrooge McDuck in “Christmas on Bear Mountain” from way back in 1947 and then “A Christmas for Shacktown” in 1951, both written and drawn by “the good duck artist,” Carl Barks.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 046 – Donald Duck by Carl Barks


Ducks! Ducks! Ducks! If you ever loved Duck Tales as a kid, then you owe it all to Carl Barks, creator of Scrooge McDuck and the city of Duckburg in the pages of his comics in the 1940s.

We look back at his most well loved story, Lost in the Andes, starring Donald Duck with his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. (Warning: We may or may not solve mysteries / rewrite histories.)
