Sheriff of Bullet Valley by Carl Barks
This Lou is dedicated to @kidinthegreenhoodie because the fact you drew on my style bc you like my work makes me sooo happy! :>
So when do we get new episodes again? I may have my issues with/reservations about the show, but I miss seeing it pop up every Sunday morning on my Amazon Prime account.
I know. I know. First-world problems, but curse me kilts, they’re my first-world problems! 😉
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…
Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday to me! Love these Funko POP! figures…
The person who drew this cover deserves to go to heaven! Look at them, so huggable!! I want to squeeze them so badly!
Disputed Claim (1976), by Carl Barks. Featuring Glittering Goldie and her pet bear.
Honestly I love all the versions of Dewey. Hes my favorite forever.
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).
