Is there any more proof Don Rosa is retarded?

whoa, larry david is a way bigger disney nerd than i thought

His duck comics aren't actually based off the ones Barks wrote before X, but the ones Barks wrote before X that he also had in his possession as a child. Details from those issues that he didn't have aren't included because they don't feel right to him or some shit.

I really think the guy's autistic, and not in the dumb online insult sense.
>>
Is Don Rosa the Ken Penders of Disney? I keep reading posts not to buy or support Disney reprints because they ruin all his work despite not owning the character at all.
>>
>>77934011
No, Don Rosa can actually draw and even write a bit. He just cares WAY too much about the ducks for some reason.

IMO Barks was better.
>>
>>77934011
Disney puts his name on books without cutting him a check for using "Don Rosa"

>>77933747
he doesn't hate ducktales. he hates plebs mistaking his comics for ducktales.

Really good point. Launchpad was a great new character but everything else they added to the Ducks world was patronizing saturday morning cliche shit, like the nanny, and th epreachy little girl, and the really dumb superhero, and the caveman in modern times.

He is a man of hate.

>really dumb superhero
I thought Gizmoduck was done better than the basic concept sounds even when watching it today, but it's hard to seriously defend a character whose existence was based around "Hey, RoboCop's cool, let's do a parody of that!" and who then got constant focus in the show.

Only so long as Duck comics aren't against Sharia m8

How about this: He hasn't written a non-comic novel yet.

He's a great storyteller, and i would honestly kill a hobo to have him write a novel
I even emailed him about it!

Either I'm retarded, or you're referring to the Harry Partridge parody.

>>77934004
Even Barks thought he was way too obsessed with this stuff

I agree, that is a good post.

Superfriends.

Duck Tales is the equivalent to Super Friends.
>>
>>77933747
Oh look we got a Egmont intern posting.

I think he wrote a duck tales comic and never got paid for it.
>>
>>77934011
Don is actually a nice guy, has talent, and doesn't pull shit out of his ass.

He may be sucking the duck dick a bit too hard but he has good reason to dislike Disney.

>they pay you to keep doing it

Boy, do I have bad news for you.
>>
>>77934011
No, he got pissed off at disney for them using HIS NAME without paying him any fucking royalties.
Like, they marketed reprints of the comics he drew, using his name in the advertising, without paying him a single fucking dime.
He had every right to be pissed off at Disney for that shit.

>How many people know how the “Disney system” of comics works? When I describe this to some fans when asked about it, they often think I’m kidding them or lying. Or they are outraged. But it’s an unfortunate fact that there have never been, and I ultimately realized there never will be, any royalties paid to the people who write or draw or otherwise create all the Disney comics you’ve ever read.

>Disney comics have never been produced by the Disney company, but have always been created by freelance writers and artists working for licensed independent publishers, like Carl Barks working for Dell Comics, me working for Egmont, and hundreds of others working for numerous other Disney licensees. We are paid a flat rate per page by one publisher for whom we work directly. After that, no matter how many times that story is used by other Disney publishers around the world, no matter how many times the story is reprinted in other comics, album series, hardback books, special editions, etc., etc., no matter how well it sells, we never receive another cent for having created that work. That’s the system Carl Barks worked in and it’s the same system operating today.

>How can such an archaic system still be in operation in the 21st Century when royalties have been paid in other creative publishing endeavors for literally centuries? All book authors, musicians, actors, singers, non-Disney cartoonists, even people who act in TV commercials… they all receive royalties if success warrants it. Even Disney pays normal royalties to creators and performers in its own movie and TV and book and music businesses. As near as I can tell, correct me if I’m wrong, but it’s only the creators of Disney comics who have no chance to receive a share of the profits of the success of the work they create.
