Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge 63, page 9

Comic Strip
Framed on the wall, with some lightning issues in the photo.


This page is from the House of Haunts story, Uncle Scrooge 63. It is one of the approximately 200 inked Barks pages which survived the printing plant destruction process. The original artwork for this story, together with several other mid-sixties stories, was given to Barks when he retired in 1966.
Together with some other Barks pages this page is framed and bolted to the wall - bolted, because the wall in question is tilting a bit. But even with the regrettable lightning issues of the scan, especially the additional image, it should be possible to enjoy Barks´ confident light-and-shade inkwork. It should also be possible to discover one of the Beagle Boys uttering Barks´ original title for this story - "His Shining Hour".

About Carl Barks

Carl Barks (March 27, 1901 – August 25, 2000) was an American cartoonist, author, and painter. He is best known for his comics about Donald Duck and as the creator of Scrooge McDuck. He worked anonymously until late in his career; fans dubbed him The Duck Man and The Good Duck Artist. In 1987, Barks was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame. Barks worked for the Disney Studio and Western Publishing where he created Duckburg and many of its inhabitants, such as Scrooge McDuck (1947), Gladstone Gander (1948), the Beagle Boys (1951), The Junior Woodchucks (1951), Gyro Gearloose (1952), Cornelius Coot (1952), Flintheart Glomgold (1956), John D. Rockerduck (1961) and Magica De Spell (1961). Cartoonist Will Eisner called him "the Hans Christian Andersen of comic books."
