Posthumous Barks

Got a mail earlier today regarding the posthumous Barks stories that has seen print lately. And since it's been awhile I touched the subject, here's something from the Barks folders I have. 

In May 2012 the 6 page story "Outcunning the Canines" was published in Europe. Daan Jippes drew and scripted the main part of the story, using a script from one of the folders as a starting point. 
Originally this was only supposed to be a one pager, but Daan felt it could be fleshed out to a longer story. And why not? Daan wrote the first five pages and the Barks gag was rewritten to fit at the end of the story.

But some of you might want to see the original script that Barks wrote, right?
Well, here it is. :)

And while I'm at it: Here's a slightly retouched version of the final page. Edited to fit Barks original script. Enjoy!

Works like charm, the one-page version!

This is interesting to see! I actually prefer Barks' short version of this gag to the final story by Daan Jippes.
