Donald Duck says "Relax!" is an unofficial narrative illustration by Debbie Anne Perry, more details about the story of which were added by its de-facto publisher, Joe Torcivia. It features Donald Duck and also mentions Captain Retro-Duck (here spelled "Captain Retro Duck").
A serene Donald Duck stays at home reading a Captain Retro Duck hardcover book, a sign reading “Stay at Home and Stay Safe!” pinned on his living room wall.
- Captain Retro-Duck, and Donald's interest in the character, originated in Joe Torcivia's 2015 localization of Romano Scarpa and Rodolfo Cimino's story The Duckburg 100 (1961). Debbie Anne Perry had earlier created many more works featuring Retro Duck in some fashion, including a cameo of a Captain Retro-Duck book in the Fluffy and Mervin one-pager Captain Retro-Duck… er, um, “Retros” Again! (2015), the unofficial Donald Duck one-pager Donald Retro Duck! (2016), and a visualization of the character as such later in 2016.
- In his commentary for the story when it was released on Joe Torcivia's The Issue At Hand, Torcivia playfully referred to the book owned by Donald in the cartoon as if it were a real Fantagraphics release he'd missed, entitled Disney Masters Volume 402: Romano Scarpa and Joe Torcivia: Captain Retro Duck Retros Again.
