If /co/ has taught me anything that isn’t “Squirrel Girl is awesome”, it’s a simple phrase that holds true even today: Don’t Fuck With McDuck.
Surely gentlemen such as these would enter their bids in guineas?
six pages later:
One Trillion, five Shilling, sixpence, a half-penny, a quarter farthing and a mite!
Isn’t anyone going to comment on the greatness of the phrase “Madder than a wet trillionaire”?
Kaffir de Gaffer?
Man, they totally could not get away with printing that now.
What is up with Flintheart’s mane of hair there? I flipped through my reprint of that story and he’s got white hair in it.
And given that earlier in the story McDuck was imprisoned for barging in on the annual Witch Doctor’s conference, I’m sure there’s a lot in this story that couldn’t get printed now.

man, now I want to go grab my Rosa books. Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck.
it’s funny, but Barks’ duck stories were my first comics. so there’s still a part of me that prefers high adventure to flights and tights.
