Donald Duck: Close-Ups
start panel
Storycode: D2007-075 · Pages: 8
Script: William Van Horn · Art: William Van Horn

Daisy has called the closer family to a meeting in the park. Apart from Donald and his nephews, also Gladstone, Scrooge and Rumpus have come. Even Gyro Gearloose is present. Daisy begins to explain the purpose of the peculiar togetherness – she has the feeling as if she is being watched. In the course of the conversation it turns out that also the relatives sometimes feel observed. Donald, however, has a still stranger feeling. It seems to him that the framing has become rather tight. Huey, Dewey and Louie soon see a simple reason for this – the artist does not draw backgrounds anymore, but only close-ups. When Donald thus learns that he is a mere drawing, he is horrified and wakes up from his nightmare.

Some of the fifteen flying insects appear especially huge in the close-ups.

This story is a risky experiment by William Van Horn. On six of the total eight pages Bill has drawn all comic characters in close-ups only.
