Phoney Bone and Uncle Scrooge



This was a suggestion from a friend and I thought it made for the perfect pairing.  You just know that Scrooge McDuck's riches would be just the temptation for Phoney to concoct one of his schemes.  Jeff's Smith's Bone shared a lot of the things that made Carl Barks' duck stories so great - simplified yet expressive characters set against lovingly detailed scenery in stories packed with action, humor and heart.  It's another reason why I really look forward to the eventual CGI films chronicling the Bone story line.  Hopefully the first film is still on track for a 2013 release.

Dave sez,

This looks very cool!
I've never read Bone. But Jeff Smith's art reminds me of Pogo. I mean that as a compliment.

There's already been a Pogo/Swamp Thing team up... kind of. The options are likely either swamp dwelling Southern characters or political satire. Bat Lash (the 60's version)? Or Howard The Duck?

This is by far the most brilliant thing you've come up with yet (and that's saying something, considering how often you are brilliant). This would be an amazing story!
