Yes, Ludwig Von Drake picks up on the message Okay, I knew that was coming because of the introduction in the book but that doesn’t make this any less weird that the first thought for this story was to have Ludwig Von Drake save the day. Ludwig Von Drake is able to save the princess with a special elixir that he created and it wakes her up and Aurora thanks Ludwig with a kiss as Ludwig flies back to his own time in his rocket ship.
That was odd. Frank Reilly, the author of most the comics that we’ve looked thus far has stated that this one started out as a retelling of Sleeping Beauty and that Maleficent somehow survived but then it took a swerve when Ludwig was brought into the story and yeah, it kinda did. I have no problem picturing The Seven Dwarves and Smee interacting but there is something about seeing Aurora being saved by Ludwig Von Drake that is just odd. That’s the only way I can describe it.
My Final Thoughts
Odd, that’s all I got. I don’t hate this and that’s saying something as I can’t stand the Sleeping Beauty movie but I think more baffled by the inclusion of Ludwig Von Drake here. Hey, it worked though. Join me next time as we look at The Three Little Pigs’ Christmas Story.
