Well this WEdnesday I purchased Volume 1 of Greatest DuckTales Stories and I will be buying Volume 2. I really hope that they produce a third volume and this is the stories I'd like tos ee in it.
"Only A Poor Old Man". Elements such as Scrooge hiding his money in the lake from the Beagles, the super termites, and the money washing downstreeam were all used in Part One of SuperDuckTales: "Liquid Assets".
"The Sunken City". Elements of this such as Scrooge dumping money into the ocean and encountering fish people, Atlantis, and even simialr design of the city of the creatureswere all usedin Part 3 of "Catch As Cash Can": Aqua Ducks".
"That's No Fable!" This story inspired the episode "Sweet Duck of Youth" but not by much. Poncey De Loon in the comic becomes Ponce De Loon and unlike the episode there really was a Fountain of Youth and and Spanish soldiers became young again by wading across it ansd stayed healthy by drinking it!
"The Second Richest Duck" since this was the beginning of Glomgold in the comics it is neccessary for this one to be reprinted in this volume. The whole thing with thenumber one dime being used as a tie breaker was used again in "Catch as Cash Can" Part 4 "Working for Scales".
"The Money Champ" was the Glomgold comic sequel and the elements of piling money side by side was used in "Working for Scales" except the money wasn't weighed in the comic.
"The Prize of Pizarro" In Part 3 of "Treasure of the Golden Suns": "Three Ducks of the Condor" there is a chiefwho wears a golden bird helmet just like in the comic.
"Son of the Sun" though it is a Don Rosa story has a lot of similrities to "Treasure of the Golden Suns" and would be a nice bonus to the volume.An object that is the golden diskmap that leads the ducks to treasure. It's possible that the Valley of the Golden Suns represents the treasureof the Incas. Just too much to this tale for it not to have inspired the episode...
What do you guys think of this lineup? Seven Barks classics and one Rosa classic!!!
