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

Happily, the stories look great and the book is a wonder to hold in your hand.... As to the content, itself, it's just as remarkable an achievement in comics as I remembered.... The contents of the book are as good as they're going to get...--Augie DeBlieck Jr.

Carl Barks was a great storyteller... We had a deep appreciation of [his] comics when we were kids. We read his stories over and over again. Nobody knew his name. We just called him 'The Good Artist' because he was so much better than all the other Disney artists.--R. Crumb

Carl Barks used ducks to shine a light on the human condition and make jokes while also making commentary on us all. Despite these stories being published in 1948 and 1949, they truly stand the test of time....--Nick Boisson

About the Author:

Carl Barks (1901-2000) spent most of his life in Oregon. In 1987, he was one of the three inaugural inductees in the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame (along with Eisner and Jack Kirby). He's also a Disney Legend.
