Apparently Gerard Way can write a really good Superman! Someone give him an Action Comics guest arc.

Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: A Matter of Some Gravity (1996)

I spent most of this Saturday at Atlanta's DragonCon, which takes place here every Labor Day weekend for the past 30 days, cosplaying as The Question under the Georgia sun. A recurring guest at the DCon is Disney comic books legend Don Rosa, who is almost unknown in his native US but is a very big name in the European comics scene.

I had the pleasure to chat with Don, and told him that I though he did a good job on continuing Carl Barks' work. He quipped "I think just you and me know who Carl Barks is in this room, kid".

While I'm sure it's an exaggeration, what I do know is we don't have enough Barks or Rosa here. So I'll post a sample of a 1996 Don Rosa story that was reprinted by Fantagraphics in 2014 for Free Comic Book day, called "A Matter of Some Gravity".



And by sheer coincidence, guess the song playing on the radio )
