Ray Moore and "Barks"

Here's the follow up to Lee Falks bio earlier this week: Ray Moore. The first artist that drew the Phantom strip.
Hmm... I don't know if this has been reprinted in the Scandinavian Phantom books. Maybe it should be? Germund: If you want to use it, just let me know.

Some of you might have noticed this signed first day of issue letter that's currently for sale on eBay. ($94 right now.)
It's signed "Carl Barks" and has a drawing of Uncle Scrooge on it.
If it had been described and sold as a drawing of Uncle Scrooge on a letter only, I'd have had no problem with it. But this... well, just take a look at the model sheet below that features actual artwork by the great Barks and you'll see what I mean.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how much it sells for. Only 8 hours left.

PS. If you like this blog please link to it from your website or your own blog. And spread the word about it on mailing lists and forums. It's always fun when you know that there's an audience out there. :)
