I choose to go along more with Rosa's duckburg than others, because
Rosa's obviously has more thought put into it.  Other writers tend to
change the "facts" as they see fit to make a story flow better.  As most
of us know, Rosa *never* does that.  I'm not saying that other writers
and artists don't make quality stories, I love to read Scarpa, (though I
must admit, his treatment of Scrooge sometimes bewilders me) Van Horn,
Rota, Block and most of the others, but the Barks/Rosa universe makes the
most sense to me anyway.  

Actually, Van Horn has always seemed to operate in a "generic" Duckburg,
that has very few characters that aren't in everyone else's stories (I
love his stories with Uncle Rumpus!), but the archetectural bits in his
stories (i.e. the money bin being on a large hill, the Coot statue) are
all right on with the Barks vision.
