In 1952-53, Carl Barks began to worry that the popularity of the Duckburg characters might not endure. As a precaution, he started developing his own comic and character universe, drawing significant inspiration from the beloved ducks. This new creation was named Pip Squeaks, but it never progressed beyond the early concept stage. Today, there is little surviving evidence of Barks’ attempt to create his own comic, making this preliminary pencil artwork an exceptionally rare find.

This original piece of Pip Squeaks artwork, dated 1952, is certified by Disnayana+.
