Not quite. Actually, Daisy first appeared in the 1940 animated cartoon
"Mr. Duck Steps Out" (for which Barks was the story director, btw).
Also, Al Taliaferro had been using her in the Donald Duck newspaper
strip since 1940. It is true, however, that it was only three months
later, in WDC 36, that Barks first showed Daisy in one of his comics.
Flat-bosomed, needless to say.
