Donald Duck, the Famous Actor

Kelly's Donald Duck stuff was almost always lively and quirky, very recognizable as his work.

Imagine that—if you kept the comics in just sort of good shape, a one dollar investment for a one year subscription, back in 1944, would be worth at least $5,000 today. Who knew?

Below, the subscription form, with art by Kelly.

And below, the story Kelly illustrated for this issue, breaking the pretense that these guys were anything but movie stars. Not a brilliant story, but awful fun, knowing the future of the guy who drew it.
