This month (January 2018) is the 70th anniversary of a character who has given Donald Duck a lot of headache over the years. Yes, of course, I'm talking about Gladstone Gander! He first appeared in Carl Barks' "Wintertime Wager" in January 1948.

Sure thing! 

It's also intresting to note that Where I'm from Donald Duck is really popular.
and has a weekly comic book.  While the Weekly comic has become stale over time. the pockets books are still nice nostalgia trip once in awhile.

I find it odd that America does not have these. But I guess the duck isn't as populair there, well atleast not before the ducktales reboot.

I know that the Disney ducks are popular in the Netherlands. In Sweden (where I'm from) we also have a weekly Donald Duck magazine, called "Kalle Anka & C: o". This magazine turns 70 years during 2018!

Just as you write the Disney ducks aren't as popular in the US as in Europe. Too bad! The Duck Tales reboot might get some Americans to discover Donald Duck comics but unfortunately I don't think much will change.

He’s the one people would love to see bad things happen to him, but that’s wishful thinking. Only good things ever happen to him.
