After serving a stint at the Walt Disney Studios, Carl Barks began drawing the comic-book adventures of Donald Duck in 1942. He alternated between longish, sprawling 20- or 30-page adventure yarns filled with the romance of danger, courage, and derring-do, whose exotic locales spanned the globe, and shorter stories that usually revolved around crazily ingenious domestic squabbles between Donald and members of the Duckburg cast. Highlights include:
· The title story, "Lost in the Andes" (Barks's own favorite). Donald and the nephews embark on an expedition to Peru to find where square eggs come from only to meet danger in a mysterious valley whose inhabitants all speak with a southern drawl, and where Huey, Dewey, and Louie save Unca' Donald's life by learning how to blow square bubbles!
· Two stories co-starring the unbearably lucky Gladstone, including the epic "Race to the South Seas," as Donald and Gladstone try to win Uncle Scrooge's favor by being the first to rescue him from a desert island.
· Two Christmas stories, including "The Golden Christmas Tree," one of Barks's most fantastic stories that pits him and the nephews against a witch who wants to destroy all the Christmas trees in the world.
· In other stories, Donald plays a TV quiz show contestant and ends up encased in a giant barrel of gelatin, a truant officer who matches wits with his nephews, and a ranch hand who outwits cattle rustlers.

Review:

The Hans Christian Andersen of comic books.--Will Eisner

A priceless part of our literary heritage.--George Lucas

Barks' strips combine high adventure with humor and subtle cultural commentaries, but they remain grounded in character... Lost in the Andes is a gorgeously packaged collection of some of the finest comics ever made. --Garrett Martin

Even now, Barks' stories are clever and funny, as he leads the ducks into impossible situations and then gives them unexpected ways out. And they're poignant in their own way, too.... And for those who just want to curl up with more than 200 pages of some of the best-written comics ever published, Lost in the Andes has all the square eggs, rubber bricks, golden Christmas trees, and races around the world that any kid or grown-up could ever want. --Noel Murray

This is as beautiful a book as I've purchased this year, and the stories within have much to offer both children and adult fans of visual storytelling and even comedy. Barks knew how to contract a joke, and this is a masterclass. --Paul Montgomery

...I'm impressed with the quality of the publication. In my estimation, the coloring is excellent and the format engaging.... The critical essays composed by a number of Barks scholars are also insightful and well written.... In my opinion, as a Carl Barks fan, this initial volume is well worth acquiring!

The Hans Christian Andersen of comic books. --Will Eisner"

A priceless part of our literary heritage. --George Lucas"

...Fantagraphics made my dreams come true with this perfect book. For $25 you get 200 pages of some of the most important comics ever made and about 30 pages of the story of Carl Barks' life along with story notes and annotations. This is a f***ing steal. --Nick Gazin"

Barks strips combine high adventure with humor and subtle cultural commentaries, but they remain grounded in character... Lost in the Andes is a gorgeously packaged collection of some of the finest comics ever made. --Garrett Martin"

Book Description Fantagraphics, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Barks alternated between longish, sprawling 20- or 30-page adventure yarns filled with the romance of danger, courage, and derring-do, whose exotic locales spanned the globe, and shorter stories that usually revolved around crazily ingenious domestic squabbles between Donald and various members of the Duckburg cast. Barks s duck stories, famously enjoyed equally by both children and adults, are both evanescent celebrations of courage and perseverance and depictions of less commendable traits -- greed, resentment, and one-upmanship Our initial volume begins when Barks had reached his peak -- 1948-1950. Highlights include - The title story, Lost in the Andes (Barks s own favorite). Donald and the nephews embark on an expedition to Peru to find where square eggs come from only to meet danger in a mysterious valley whose inhabitants all speak with a southern drawl, and where Huey, Dewey, and Louie save Unca Donald s life by learning how to blow square bubbles - Two stories co-starring the unbearably lucky Gladstone, including the epic Race to the South Seas, as Donald and Gladstone try to win Uncle Scrooge s favor by being the first to rescue him from a desert island - Two Christmas stories, including The Golden Christmas Tree, one of Barks s most fantastic stories that pits him and the nephews against a witch who wants to destroy all the Christmas trees in the world - In other stories, Donald plays a TV quiz show contestant and ends up encased in a giant barrel of Shaky-Jell, a truant officer who matches wits with his nephews, and a ranch hand who outwits cattle rustlers These new editions feature meticulously restored and re-colored pages in a beautifully designed, affordable format geared to the mainstream book buyer.
