Wednesday = Barksday!
[Edit: Changed the year from 1964 to 1962 after reading THIS. Submission date of dec 20, 1962 fits better than 1964 since I found two different sources saying submission for art was august 8, 1963 or the same date 1964.]
If last weeks post featured a rare item, here's something that's almost as rare. A 1960's handwritten preliminary script for an Uncle Scrooge one pager. This one was published in Uncle Scrooge 55 (1965) without title. It's later been labeled "Ticking Detector", but here we can see what Barks own title was: "Time Lost".
This sheet also have an unpublished script for another Uncle Scroge one pager. It's in the hands of a very talented artist, and will hopefully see the light of day in a not too distant future. :)
But now for the "mystery" I promised you last week. On the back of this sheet there are some "try-outs" for a sentence or two.
"But even so, I feel creepy going in this dark"
"But even so, I feel as if hidden eyes watching us from the dark crannies of this spooky place!"
"But it's too late now to do more than just"
Question is wich story he was working on and what the final version was. Any guesses?
[Edit: Thanks to Thisher who found the dialouge in Crown of the Mayas (US 44). The sentence can be found on page 20 in that story.]
