When Don Rosa makes an appearance at a convention he always has an assortment of prints with him.
A large number of these prints are famous comic book covers with the original characters replaced with characters from the Duck Universe.
I always loved that idea and one boring winter day I thought it would be fun to take a shot at making one myself. The cover I chose was Fantastic Four #49 drawn by the King himself, Jack Kirby.
The issue, “If This Be Doomsday!”, was the continuation of the first appearance of the villain Galactus in the the Marvel Universe. It is a classic comic in every sense of the word, and one of my favorite comic covers of all time.
In my version I chose to reverse the roles. Galactus and Silver Surfer would be Scrooge and Donald while the Fantastic Four would be filled by various members of the Beagle Boys Gang.
I really liked how the drawing turned out. If I could change something about it, I would change the Beagle Boys. They come off as being flat to me, and I would have liked them to be more dynamic, to actually convey a sense of movement and pop off the page. When I was done with the drawing, I scanned the image in and did some basic flat coloring. I never went back and did any shading on it though.
