i’m sharing some of the duck comics i found particularly fun and/or relevant in this extremely early era! this list doesn’t include anything that’s steeped in old-fashioned values like beating your children or violent racism - i tend to find that there’s nothing otherwise redeeming about those stories, anyway.
01 - DONALD DUCK FINDS PIRATE GOLD
i’m not sure how it came about that the very first duck comic this guy ever got published was a 64-page pirate adventure and then he went on to mainly do ten-page goofs for years and years, but that’s how it happened.
14 - THE DUCK IN THE IRON PANTS “donald and his nephews get into some kind of competition that escalates into a prank-off and then all-out war” is basically the most common genre of early duck comics, so here’s a sample.
It really sucks how the Great Comet broadway boot got taken down. I know that video helped the show to be way more accessible to lots of people. I wish we had another link to give to people or something. Maybe something that people could watch, download, possibly re-upload again if it got taken down again. If only such a thing existed. (x)
