Madame X?

Speaking of humorous cartoonists working on adventurous comics—of course Carl Barks' best Duck stories were of the adventurous sort. But isn't it fascinating to think of what might have been if Barks had proceeded with his experimentation of a human adventure romance strip, as he attempted here in a character study back in the late 1940s?

It's just great ! Is there any other images of Barks of this kind ?

Well, Barks has a lot of 'girlie' drawings and cartoons out there, but this is the only 'straight' adventure/romance example that I recall seeing. He ended up transferring that adventure-lust into the ducks' global travels.

I think the Duck stories take on a whole new context if you consider they _are_ human romances...

Cheers!
