Let nothing, up to and including a pack of Tibetan Yetis, deter you from getting to your local comic book shop to pick up a copy of DONALD DUCK # 4 (Legacy Numbering # 371) from IDW!
In it, you’ll find "The Perfect Calm" or "Are We There Yeti?", an original 1974 story from the Italian publication ALMANACCO TOPOLINO # 211 written by Rodolfo Cimino, with "perfectly calm"... er, superbly complementary (and sometimes "perfectly weird") art by the great Romano Scarpa, with full translation and dialogue by yours truly!
There, he meets an old Tibetan sage who introduces him to the state-of-being known as "The Perfect Calm"!
Donald is quick to embrace this philosophy, as the latest in his long line of All-Consuming Obsessions, like this one...
But, instead of a quest for a set of outdated walkie-talkies...
...He's off to Tibet, on a quest to achieve "The Perfect Calm", with his nephews in hot protective pursuit!
There, they find Yetis...
...And, "The Perfect Calm"!
And just wait until Donald brings "The Perfect Calm" back to Duckburg! Hoo-Boy!
The issue is rounded-out by "Hampered", a 1937 three-page British comic...
...And Ludwig Von Drake and Grandma Duck in "Chore Chump", by Don R. Christensen and Paul Murry.
I must point out that Don once told me that he preferred the "R." in his name, because there were two other "Don Christensens" in animation, and this was his way of differentiating himself from them. So, perhaps in future credits, IDW could use the "R." (which Don sometimes wrote as "ARR" for effect) as part of his name.
So, walk in a "Perfectly Calm" manner, or run in a total frenzy - makes no difference to me, as long as you pick up a a copy of DONALD DUCK # 4 (Legacy Numbering # 371) from IDW!
It will be one of the more bizarre - not to mention outright fun - reads you will have this year! I make that "Perfectly Calm" guarantee!
As always, once you’ve read the issue, please come back and join the discussion in our Comments Section!
Just remember, I do not speak for IDW, or anyone in its employ. I speak strictly for myself as both a long-time fan and as a dialogue creator – and those opinions are strictly my own.
I’ll meet you back here for another lively comment thread! Not sure if DONALD will be here, though... 3...2... 1... Bye, Donald!
Maybe, we'll even get comments from some Yetis!
Bonus Closing Pun: This issue is SO GOOD, it would be foolish "Tibet" against it!
