Review: Donald Duck: Shellfish Motives by Romano Scarpa, Dick Kinney, Jonathan Gray

The adventures of Donald Duck return in these kid-friendly-sized collections. Includes the story "Shellfish Motives," "Wrecks, Lies, and Videotape," and more.
While Donald Duck is not my favorite of Mickey Mouse's friends, I still find him entertaining.

In Donald Duck: Shellfish Motives, the main story has Donald being recruited by his Unca Gideon to investigate the kidnapping of a foreigner. The other stories in the comic book include appearances by Huey, Dewey and Louie, Daisy, Uncle Scrooge McDuck, and Cousin Fethry.

This comic is a must-have for Donald Duck fans. While I am familiar with Huey, Dewey and Louie, as well as Daisy and Uncle Scrooge, I have never seen Cousin Fethry before. He was kinda flighty and not my favorite, but his antics made me laugh, especially when it resulted in problems for Donald or it irritated him in some way. Angry Donald is hilarious.

Of all the stories in this comic book, I would have to say that the strongest one for me was the main story. It was a mystery, one which had Donald had some clues right in front of him but the real heroes ended up being Huey, Dewey and Louie.

The other stories were okay too, but the thing about Donald is that a good deal of his charm comes from his voice and delivery of lines, so while the stories are funny, it would be even better had they been on television.

Thanks to NetGalley and IDW Publishing for the e-ARC.


  1. The main story was solid.
  2. Donald Duck acts exactly how you expect him to act, based on the cartoons.
  3. Huey, Dewey, and Louie get lots of screen time.


  1. I would have liked to see more of Daisy Duck.


  1. You are a fan of Donald Duck.
  2. You love Uncle Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, Louie and/or Daisy Duck.
  3. You are looking for a nice, quick read.
