Arne And, by Charlie Christensen

Between 1983 and 1995, Charlie Christensen did the satirical 'Donald Duck' parody 'Arne Anka' in Galago magazine. This anthropomorphic comic, about a failed alcoholic poet in Stockholm, was not accepted by Disney, and the company threatened to sue Christensen. Christensen then let his character have a surgical operation to give him new looks.

However, Christensen gave his character its original appearance back after a while by giving him a false beak. Afterwards, he started the series 'Röde Orm' ('Red Snake'), a comics version of a classic tale of Swedish vikings. For the sports magazine Offside, he has drawn 'Bar Nero'.
