Duck Comics Revue

Welcome! This index page will allow you to easily access all of my mini-essays about duck comics--mainly by Carl Barks currently, but later to probably include Don Rosa and perhaps some others. Also occasional other miscellaneous duck-related posts. Warning: Occasional strong language and left-wing politics.

...the above is what I wrote about two years ago. These days, I'm a lot more omnivorous in what I write about. Barks still predominates, and always will, but I'll write about just about any duck comic that takes my fancy. Enjoy.
