Uncle Scrooge

I first fell in love with "Scrooge McDuck" from his staring role in "Mickey's Christmas Carol". From there, I followed the gent to "Duck Tales", and years later to the work of #carlbarks and #donrosa.

While I still love #ducktales, I find that nothing beats #unclescrooge COMICS for the very best of the old bird.

That said, this piece was designed to have elements from both the cartoon and the comics that inspired it. The #moneybin was modeled after it's appearance in the cartoon, as was the inclusion of a plane, to represent #launchpadmcquack. While the nephews #juniorwoodchuck quidebook, Scrooge's "sideburns" and his good old #numberonedime are specifically from the comics.

This was a lot of fun, and maybe someone from #IDW will see it and decide I would be a good cover artist for their #disney books!

Comic Art Examples


My name is Derrick Fish. I'm a cartoonist and illustrator located in Oil City, PA. I am the creator and artist of the online comic, Dandy & Company and the independent graphic novel series, The Wellkeeper.

As an artist, I've drawn stories for the Image Comics titles PvP and The Perhapanauts. I've worked on Atomic Robo for Red 5 Comics and Star Mage and White Chapel for IDW. I'm also the co-creator, co-writer and artist for the Hashtag Comics mini series, Carpe Noctem.

On this page, I've collected a number of samples of some of my work, broken down by tasks for your review and consideration. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or would like to contact me, my email is:

Dandy & Company: The Movie!?

So, I can almost hear you all asking me, "There's going to be a MOVIE!?!"

Ummmm.... No.

Well, maybe SOMEDAY, but not just yet. See, as a creator, I've been told countless times "Someone should make a Dandy & Company movie!". And HECK, I agree. I'd LOVE to see these characters that I've been drawing for over THIRTY YEARS made into a movie. But that's not happening anytime soon.

As such, I've decided to do the next best thing. And so, starting in January of 2016, the weekly webcomic becomes "Dandy & Company: The Movie! The Official Comics Adaptation of the Non-Existent Motion Picture!"

That's right. For the full 52 weeks of 2016, I'll be creating a longform comic book adventure that is exactly what I WOULD make into a movie if I could! It's going to be the ULTIMATE DANDY & COMPANY ADVENTURE!!!! And what better way to announce a new FAKE movie than with a FAKE movie poster where I do my level best to rip off movie poster master artist, Drew Struzan!

See you online in 2016!!! (Actually, keep reading now too. There's all kinds of funny new strips every week!)

Who Ya Gonna Parody?

Since restarting the strip last December, I've been doing mostly one off gags and have only dipped my toes back into the water of long form storytelling. Well all THAT'S over starting this September with the upcoming crossover with Martin Dunn's ghostly SPECTRO of #iFightGhosts!

So prepare for 3 months of laughs, spooky scares and shameless rip offs starting this September 2nd!!
