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.

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Don Rosa‘s tribute to a comic immortal, and to Carl Barks its creator. Make no mistake: this is an effort worthy of the Master.

Can Carl Barks be compared with Mark Twain? Obviously so, as they are both American literary geniuses. But perhaps comparisons are pointless; the sad truth is that while many U.S. citizens would know Mark Twain, very few would know much about Carl Barks.

Indeed it is probable that more would know about the creator of Scrooge McDuck in Europe, South America, and elsewhere. (Based on sales figures, it is estimated that some 25% of the population of Norway and Finland regularly read the comics of Carl Barks.)

From 1941 till 1966, Barks was the (uncredited) writer and artist behind the Disney Duck comics. Being uncredited, he was known by fans as ‘The Good Artist.’ During those years he invited a gallery of memorable characters, of which perhaps the greatest was Donald’s Uncle Scrooge.
