The Last of the Blackducks is a comic story written by Darko Macan and drawn by Paolo Mottura. It features Donald Duck, and, in their debut, Ferdinand Blackduck, Mabel, Michael, Michael's Auntie, Doctor Blackduck, Mrs Blackduck, Mr Ratford and Ernest Ratford.
Just as he was becoming particularly dispirited with his latest job (courtesy of business shark Mr Ratford), Donald Duck is shanghaied by eccentric pirate's ghost Ferdinand Blackduck, who introduces himself as his distant ancestor and wants him to join the family traditions! Soon Donald develops a taste for seafaring life, Blackduck is slowly coming around to the idea of a more honest life, and his pet whale Mable is learning new tricks: in short, everyone's happy. But it's not to last…
