I think I’m probably pushing the definition of Alphabeast a touch close to the edge with this entry but, heck, maybe there’s enough precedent that I might be able to get away with it. That’s me, a loner, a rebel… Anyhow, I’m trying to suggest that U is for Uncle Scrooge, that lovable 1%er from Duckburg who just can’t seem to keep from flailing around in all his accumulated filthy lucre.
I had a hard time coming up with something for U that wasn’t a unicorn or Ultraman that still interested me in drawing it. I gotta admit I’m a little burned out on straight up mythological creatures and I’m turning my eye in a more pop cultural direction. Plus, the local Cartooning Club of which I belong just had a discussion around the recent Carl Barks book from Fantagraphics and so ducks were on my mind. Quack!
