Is Scrooge McDuck really that popular of a character? Are these stories even worth picking up? This means that there are literally thousands upon thousands of duck comics out there, and between that and the fact that the American license tends to bounce around from publisher to publisher, it can be tricky to track down what to read and how to read it. Over the course of about comics in his career, Barks developed Donald and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie into more nuanced characters than they were on the screen at the time, and created a vast world for them to inhabit, as well as characters and concepts such as Duckburg, Gyro Gearloose, Gladstone Gander, Magica de Spell, Flintheart Glomgold, the Beagle Boys, the Junior Woodchucks, and, of course, Scrooge McDuck, who quickly outpaced his hot-tempered nephew in popularity. It was Barks who first sent Scrooge and company on high-flying adventures to the farthest reaches of the world in search of treasure. Fun fact: the iconic rolling boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark was lifted from a Barks comic.
