Paperinik the Diabolical Avenger!


The Italian Disney comic artist who created Paperinik is Giovan Battista Carpi. You can read about Donald's alter ego at Wikipedia.

Donald's superhero alias "Paperinik" is a combination of the names "Diabolik," a fictional Italian villain, and "Paperino," Donald's Italian name.

Paperinik was created in 1969 after Italian children complained to the Italian publishers of Donald Duck comics that Donald was always a loser in their stories.

This is my first Bird Friday! And my first picture on my blog.
