Drakestail-Eric Peters-1950

There were a lot of talking ducks in the Golden Age of Comics...most of them variations on Disney's Donald. This one, however, DRAKESTAIL, (from LET'S PRETEND) is a nattily dressed wisequacker with pants and a hat. He fights oppression and then ends up living with a human female. That's right. Give him a cigar and he's a HOWARD THE DUCK prototype.
