Don Rosa, Ganduck the Grey and a Very Crowded Con

I traveled to Charlotte, NC this past Saturday for the annual Heroes Comics Convention. The main hall, with its combination of dealers and talent, was heavy on congestion and light on non-superhero fare. If there were good deals on classic Harvey, Disney, Archie and other such nostalgia, they were so far off the radar as to be non-existent.

The highlight of the day was my all to brief meeting with Don Rosa. A long line behind me prevented any kind of extended conversation, but Don did personalize a really unique (and hilarious) print that he generously gave me permission to showcase here. It is likely the closest thing you'll ever find to a Disney-Lord of the Rings crossover.

Thanks again, Don!

That's really cool. As a huge fan of both Disney and Lord of the Rings, that is a really cool thing to see. Thanks for posting it.
