So there’s a Ducktales comic titled “Dream Of A Lifetime” that is remarkably similar to the new, widely popular Chris Nolan movie, Inception. While the comic came out in 2004, Ducktales is a 90s phenomenon so this topic is worth being discussed here. Now, in said comic, the Beagle Boys (a gang of criminals), use some type of contraption to enter the dreams of Scrooge and steal the secret combination to McDuck’s vault of riches. The nephews of McDuck use that same contraption to enter his dreams and foil the criminal’s plans. I’ve seen the comparisons in a panel by panel breakdown and Good Lord they look alike. Ducktales was a personal favorite of mine growing up so I find this extremely fascinating. If that greedy bastard Scrooge McDuck were real I bet he wouldn’t hesitate to sue Chris Nolan and try to make a quick buck. I don’t know if this is true but how awesome would it be if one of the highest grossing movies of 2010 was based off of a 2000s comic, that was based off of a 90s cartoon? Ok, now I’m getting complex and confusing like Inception, so I’ll let that thought sink in.
