We’re getting iced with an Arctic Blast of chilliness in my neck of the woods! Hope you’re staying warm wherever you happen to be. At the very least, “Blizzard Tonight,” a painting by Carl Barks, should warm your hearts, if not your feet and hands…

Tonight, I was practically overcome with glee to tell my wife about the deals I got at Subway (coupon for a free six-inch sub…with the purchase of a drink!) and Walmart (discounts of the 75 percent off variety!). This tells me three things, which I’ll count out in letters and corresponding pictures: a.) I’m becoming an old man; b.) my life is inexorably average, ordinary, and boring; and c.) a lifetime of reading Uncle Scrooge comics has rubbed off on me, but not in ways that translate into a binful of money…

Before you bid adieu to the Christmas season (which I won’t be bidding adieu to for another week or so), here is one of Carl Barks’ greatest yarns, “A Christmas for Shacktown,” from Four Color #367 (January 1952).

If I were a Disney animation executive, I’d have this story lifted wholesale from the printed page, without changing a word, and scheduled to air as a primetime animated Christmas special in December 2018.

Now, that would be a Christmas miracle…

Sidenote: Notice how Scrooge utters variations of the phrase “only a poor old man” at different intervals in the story. Obviously, it was kicking around in the Good Duck Artist’s head, probably because “Only a Poor Old Man,” a.k.a. Uncle Scrooge #1, was mere months away from being published in Four Color #386 (March 1952).

I hope your New Year is a duck-blur of race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes. I hope you solve some mysteries and rewrite history. I hope your 2018 is filled with tales of derring-do bad and good luck tales (not pony tales or cotton tales, though). And at the end, I hope you look back on it all and have only one thing to say…

“Woo-oo!”

Happy New Year, everyone!

Here are four great New Year’s covers from Mickey Mouse Magazine and Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories. The latter two feature artwork by the incredible Walt Kelly (whose nephews always looked a bit bloated, but in a cute, charming way)…

Here’s one of Carl Barks’ many hilarious New Year’s resolution-focused stories. Notice how Louie behaves in this yarn a lot like his DuckTales 2017 counterpart!

These scans were taken from the What About Thad blog (link below), and the story is from Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories 173 (February 1955).
