This is significant because it's the first national article that identifies Carl Barks as the artist behind Disney's duck comics. Before then, Barks worked largely in anonymity.
- Terry Beatty talks about teaming up The Phantom with Mandrake the magician, as well as his updated Phantom logo.
- Musician Richie Havens died this week. Richard Bensam pointed me to Havens' thoughts about Superman recorded in the early 1970s.
