Could this be the story "Tom-tom Island" from Mickey Mouse Four Color 304,
drawn by Riley Thompson?

It took a while before I saw the connection with Mikko's story: "De Zoon
van de Zon" is Dutch for "The Son of the Sun".
I'll look up the date in a Dutch comic book catalogue.

The Dutch once published an article with the covers of all kinds of foreign
Disney magazines. The Scandinavian ones were all first issues or 'facsimiles'
of first issues. On the Norwegian first issue, a text was written:

	"Congratulations on your world record. Carl Barks"

Which world record was he referring to?
