I’m tickled pink (well, more of a maroon actually) to have one of the greatest Disney comic creators of all time (IMO) write the opening caption for my current Couple-Up contest on GoComics & Facebook. No one except possibly Carl Barks has had a bigger influence on my work than Bill Van Horn. (See much more of Bill’s work here.)
Thanks to Bill I got my start doing Disney comics back in 1989. And it was always considerably easier because I was teamed up with Bill as my artist (and mentor) in those early years.
He (along with editor Byron Erickson) helped me polish up those early Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge and DuckTales stories. And, more than that, he’s remained a good friend.
