Merry Christmas to all of you keeping quality stories from Duckburg alive!  

Re-re-re-reading A Christmas for Shacktown makes me believe even more that the genius of Carl Barks remains under-appreciated.  This 32-page epic is a masterpiece of story-telling: funny in slapsticky, ironic, and satiric fashion, mysterious, emotionally compelling, and subtly focused on its serious theme, with a large cast of "true-to-life" characters.  

60 years later it remains a Mount Everest for aspiring authors in any genre to climb and match.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
