There *is* a Duck/Tolkien crossover.
It's "A World Beyond"- D 97572, a 73-page Egmont pocketbook story
published last year. "Sandalf" the wizard chooses Donald to lead a bunch of
hobbit-like characters on an adventure. Needless to say, Donald being the
duck that he is, he's more the kind to talk about noble deeds than actually
do them, but now he's stuck in an uncomfortable spot...
By Spectrum Associates (Eddie and David O' Connor) and José
Manrique, I think it's a very good story... but as a disciple of its editor
Byron Erickson, I'm biased!
