Today’s Don Rosa’s birthday
Pass it on.
Here we have Scrooge building the tallest building in Duckburg just to save money. I also love the sheer absurdity of the plane in the third panel.
I LOVE THIS STORY. It’s got great gags, and also gave us one of the greatest single panels (plus inset leadup) that’s ever come out of duck comics.
Shout out to the many sound effects of things hitting Scrooge’s head, or vice versa.
The “hole in the pocket” picture I just reblogged reminded me of this, one of my favorite 1-pager gags.
Leaky Luck by Don Rosa, appearing in Uncle $crooge 242 in 1990
Scrooge’s Uncle Pothole would like to tell you about the Mississppi River.
(From The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, chapter 2- Master of the Mississippi)
don rosa’s hatred of fethry will never not be funny to me
there’s just something so funny about “as far as I’m concerned, Fethry does not exist” just because he wasn’t created by carl barks
also, “Curses!!!” with THREE exclamation points
(quote found in volume 5 of the don rosa library collection, under the section about the family tree!)
I think my blog and a considerable part of my childhood were just an hallucination then.
Why must you hurt me Don Rosa
I can’t even imagine Fethry not being on the Duck Family tree! Thank God the editors knew what they were doing, and thank God they are also big fans of this character
