Carl Barks is interesting, his work is excellent, and this critical biography explores Barks's critiques of imperialism and modern society. What the book doesn't need to appeals to the questionable authority of people like Freud, whose half-baked, completely unscientific theories have very little to do with fictional ducks in ten-page comic books. No, Donald is not suffering vagina dentata anxiety every time a character has a large-ish mouth. Postmodern criticism really kills me sometimes.
