Firebug finale

European Barks fans probably already have this panel, that appeared first in volume III of the deluxe Carl Barks collection. But, for overseas readers and old timers who are content with their CBL boxes, here's something that you might not have seen before. Geoffrey Blum and Daan Jippes did a great job restoring the final panel of The Firebug to Barks original intentions, having Donald ending up behind bars. Enjoy!

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!

Public service...

Since this page was bumped off the recent Swedish and Danish editions of the Scandinavian Donald Duck Weekly, by an italian soccer story, I feel that's it's not more than fair to post it here.
Story and art by Daan Jippes. Enjoy!

More stuff from Holland coming soon...

New Barks, Lustig and Jippes story this week!

A brand new Uncle Scrooge story by Carl Barks, John Lustig and Daan Jippes will be published this week!
It's an unfinshed script by Barks, probably from the 60's, that John Lustig now has finished and Daan Jippes has provided the artwork to.
Here are a few samples to wet your appetite.
And for those of you who lives outside scandinavia: you can always bug your editors to pick up "The duck who came for dinner" for publication. The code number is "D 2010-073".  :)

The original script was sold a few years ago as a part of the Barks Estate auctions on eBay.
This is what it looks like.

Besides the unfinshed script to the Happi Happi story I own and a few one pagers there are at least one more unpublished/unfinished plot out there, that is more than just a story description or an idea. (A plot broken down into pages and panels.) It's labeled as "Gyro's manager plot":

And while I'm at it...
I just wanted to mention this one, dealing with Magica DeSpell.
It seems to be written in the 90's, judging by the handwriting. (There are pages below the top one that looks like they are from a Junior Woodcucks story but the handwriting looks like Barks in his 70's.) Might be a scrapped idea that was written before "Horsing Around with History" or another plot began afterwards. Probably one of his last ones and it would sure be interesting to read it in full.

(If you own unpublished plots like the above samples, please get in touch with me. I'm always interested in trading or buying.)

PS. Here's a screencap from Wikipedia.
I changed it back to just "Carl Barks" since someone obviously pulled a leg here. Pretty funny though, but it shows how unreliable some sources can be...
Thanks to "Sim" on the Disney Comics Forum for observing this!

Was the Simpsons character named after Barks? Hmm...

Duck Tales rarities

Some rarities for the Duck Tales fans out there. Just found a promotional folder for Duck Tales dating back to 1987 that I thought I should share with you.

BTW, this "poster" featuring the cast of season 1 was pencilled by Daan Jippes.

I have to admit that I never was a fan of the show. Actually I don't like it or the comic book stories based on it at all. The idea of doing an aventure show based on Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge is great, but the result just wasn't my cup of tea.

The best part of Duck Tales was the covers Daan Jippes did for the Gladstone comic books. I tried to read the comic book stories and found them just ... well ... eh ... the less I say about them the better. But I still bought the issues because of the cover art. Here you see what was supposed to be the cover to the first issue of Duck Tales in August 1987. (Taken from an ad that ran in the summer issues of Gladstones titles.) However, the Duck Tales title was pushed back. Instead this cover graced Uncle Scrooge Adventures #1. (Image below taken from Coverbrowser.)

Somewhere beyond Nowhere

Wednesday = Barksday.

As you can see this week's cover of the Swedish Donald Duck weekly prominently proclaims to feature a "classic Carl Barks comic!" Well, to call something a classic the first time it's published might be to stretch it.
In reality it's a new version of the story "Somewhere in Nowhere", retitled "Somewhere beyond Nowhere" and rewritten to fit 12 pages, compared to the old versions 28.
[There seems to be some confusion about this since the credits in the book lists "Carl Barks and John Lustig (ca 1996)" as writers and artist as: "New artwork by Daan Jippes." Now, this was based on an idéa by Barks and written by Lustig. Probably in 2008. And the artwork by Jippes is obviously new, but can't be compared to the old version drawn by Pat Block, since it's a completely different story.]
Just to wet your appetite, here are a few sample panels.

PS. If you are in Copenhagen May 21-23 make sure to visit at Øksnehallen. Daan will be among the guests along with Peter Madsen, Dave Gibbons, Henk Kuijpers, Daniel Clowes and many, many more.

La mode cartoone!

Don't miss:
La mode cartoone!
from French Elle magazine at the Disney History blog!
Some top talent was involved in doing this, as this message from Ulrich Schröder explains:
"[...] as this was a collaboration I just wanted to mention that DAAN JIPPES helped me by going over most of the layouts and all of the caricatures, MARIO CORTES drew the all the Disney characters on the last spread (Galliano) and FERRAN RODRIGUEZ inked these (again Galliano) and IVAN BOIX did the color."

Great stuff! Go check it out, if you havn't done it already!

"Giga"-Havank by Danier

It's getting close to X-mas now so why not get yourself a gift that you know you want? Unless you wish for new underwear (or something equally boring) here's a big whopper of a book that will fit neatly beneath your x-mas tree.
Danier's new giant sized version of the second Havank album "De schaduw op de tast"!

I don't have the book myself yet but I got some snapshots that will give you a hint of what to expect. (Click on the images to enlarge.)

If you got the big Franquin QRN book or the Havank teaser from 2008 you're familar with the format.

It's available in two versions (with or without a sketch page) and is limited to only 200 copies. So don't expect that these will be available forever...
The price (for the regular edition) is €110 + postage.
You can get the book from Danier himself by mailing: lijnlust AT

Thoroughly Modern Minnie

Following the previous post here's more of Minnie. This time not so murderous...

Yesterday I was looking through a set of Disney stats. What I saw was probably clip-art sent to various publishers from the Disney studio in the 70's and 80's. I thought most of it was stiff and boring until I saw the following artwork in the bottom of the pile.

I guess these drawings are from the mid 80's, and that this was an attempt to make a more modern and up to date Minnie. There are some great, great poses to be found among these sheets! So I've scanned some of the best for you to enjoy. I sure got inspired when I saw them and if you are an artist I hope you will be too. :)

[Edit: These are all drawn by Daan Jippes. See the comments for further info.]
