Comment

The first Barks page I bought many years ago, and so the sentimental attachment is strong. Our Official Family Hound loves it too.
This page is one of the appr. 200 survivors from the destruction orgy of the 6000+ pages Barks wrote, pencilled and inked. It was given to Barks when he retired in 1966.
Sorry for the bad lightning issues in the image - the page is framed and bolted to a tilting wall.

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."
