DuckTales Indices: Another Country (Literally) Heard From
The publisher of an online German fanzine called BE has just released a 184-page DuckTales tribute issue, and it's a real sight to behold. In the Teutonic tradition, it's nothing if not thorough. Besides the expected episode summaries, character descriptions, references to Carl Barks stories that were adapted for animation, and so forth, the tome features a number of essays on specific aspects of the series (e.g., the role of female characters and the ways in which the Junior Woodchucks are portrayed); reviews of DT comics (including the kaboom! era), video games, and merchandising; and a colorful picture gallery showing all the different vehicles that Launchpad piloted (and crashed) during the course of the series. Even if you don't read German, it's well worth paging through.
