Those crazy ducks over in Duckburg are at it again guys. This time they’re using ideas seen in Christopher Nolan’s Inception and putting them into their comics!
The panel seen here is from “The Dream of a Lifetime,” where The Beagle Boys use a special machine to enter Scrooge’s dream in an effort to extract information so they can steal his money. The story appeared in an issue of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck published in 2002.
You eagle-eyed viewers might say that this comic is before Inception was released, but Christopher Nolan actually had thought about these ideas on and off since he was sixteen years old and first pitched the idea to Warner Bros. in 2001.
Nolan has previously been accused by critics of ‘ripping off’ the classic French New Wave film L’AnnÃ©e derniÃ¨re Ã Marienbad (Last Year at Marienbad), but when asked about this by the New York Times he stated that he never got around to seeing it until after Inception was finished.
Whether you buy what Nolan is selling or not, you can still read the full comic here, or download a PDF here, and marvel at the similarities.
