Documentary About Comic Artist and Scrooge McDuck Creator Carl Barks Needs Your Help

The French team behind an as yet uncompleted documentary on legendary comic artist Carl Barks (titled Carl Barks: The Duck Man) have set up an IndieGogo crowd funding campaign to help produce the project. If you’re unfamiliar with his name, Carl Barks got his starting drawing comics in the 1940’s, later working for Disney on Donald Duck comics and eventually creating Scrooge McDuck, the town of Duckburg and most of it’s now well-known inhabitants. Because of Barks’ ties to several Disney duck characters, he became known as “The Duck Man” by fans, who thanks to Barks’ long-standing anonymity, were unaware of his connection to these characters until much later in his life.  If you’d like to donate money towards the film, you can check out the IndieGogo page here.
