Daan Jippes´ inked version


In the early 1970s, Carl Barks was talked out of his retirement and scripted a series of Junior Woodchuck stories. He made rather detailed sketches of all of them, and most of these original pencilled pages have survived. The stories were inked by Kay Wright and Tony Strobl. In recent times, Daan Jippes has re-inked all of them. Here is Barks´ first page for the Be Leery of Lake Eerie story published in 1972. Compare Jippes´ inked version.

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."
