Porky Of the Mounties
Carl Barks did so few non-Disney duck stories for Western Publishing during his long comic book career that all of them are worth noting. Such is the case of Porky Of the Mounties, a story Barks did in 1944 for Dell's one-shot issues series, Four Color Comics #48. 1944.
The story demonstrates that the artist, who also drew a Mickey Mouse one-shot ("The Riddle Of the Red Hat," Four Color #79), drew Barney Bear (an MGM property), as well as these renderings of Bugs, Petunia and Porky (Warner Bros), could draw more than ducks.
