"Gigabeagle: King of the Robot Robbers"
Hi, ev'rybody! It so happens that I've come into a big ol' stack o' IDW comics, so now we can delve into this material. I'm not going to try to write about EVERY story, because A) that sounds like a lot of work; and B) sometimes I just don't have that much to SAY about a story, and in those circumstances, when I try to force myself to write about it anyway, the results—as we've seen on a number of occasions—are not pretty (unless you don't know what I'm talking about, in which case, ho ho, a bad entry on the almighty Duck Comics Revue? An impossibility!). Still, it should provide a rich vein to work with. I'm trying to space out my reading here to some extent for savoring purposes, but so far I see no reason not to be HAPPY AS HELL with the line. Long may it reign!

"Return to Duckburg Place"
Hi, welcome back! Normal service resumes...now! Yeah, yeah, promises, promises. Still, this blog was getting awfully lonely, and it was high time for a little discussion of a teenage Don Rosa's unofficial Disney-comics debut, so here we are (it should be noted that there's a credited co-writer for this—anyone know who Ray Foushee is?). For a long time, this story was kind of legendary; there were a few pages online, but the whole thing—which has only ever been reprinted in some high-end Scandinavian collection or other—was tantalizingly out of reach. I first read it when a heroic poster name of Sigvald on the now-defunct Disney Comics Forum (Cacou? Olivier? Give us an update here!) just casually was all, oh, yeah, I have scans of that, and started emailing them to everyone. I put it up on mediafire, and the rest is history. Really boring history.
