I also noticed that. If you can find a blog or website that has those caps, try to put other links instead those related to the page you mentioned. I'll try to find them as well.

I wouldn't agree on the "Stalking is Love" trope on the discussion of The Prisoner of White Agony Creek. Admiring a memento of a loved one wouldn't in my opinion, amount to stalking; is the soldier looking at a Fatal Family Photo of his sweetheart stalking? While the Stockholm Syndrome implications are there, I don't think that this trope applies.

Is the site with the comics on it legal? Is it part of disney or just a fan site?

"It should be noticed that Goldie wasn't really kidnapped. She is a prisoner paying her dues, who knows she'll be returned unharmed at the end of her sentence. While her punishment was decided by her victim, it's hard to argue that it wasn't extremely fair, especially since she was paid for her labour (gold digging, you sickos). At no time was there any implication whatsoever that Scrooge was threatening her in any way."

That's not what Carl Barks thought after he looked at it a second time; he himself admitted that there was no way around the fact that the definition of what Scrooge does is "kidnapping":

"Scrooge picked her up and carried her out to his claim and made her go to work. It didn't look like kidnapping, yet it was. He was taking the law into his own hands and that is not lawful. And what did he do with her at night? I had really overstepped the bounds, and I realized it when the editors cut the sequence out."

Rosa does keep the panels of Scrooge telling her to keep working or she'll get no supper tonight, so his interpretation has the same disturbing implications. This is not (necessarily) a bad thing...

But the fact is that there's no sugarcoating it; neither of the 2 authors behind this story would deny that.
