“I didn’t go along with the editors’ idea that children who bought comics were ignorant, blubbering infants. I assumed that my average reader was around twelve years old, semi-worldly, and already quite knowledgeable about mechanics, history, science, nature, travel, and so on. I felt that readers of any age would be more pleasantly entertained by stories that were plausibly written and believably drawn.”

-Carl Barks, artist and writer of Donald Duck
