ALT DISNEY DONALD DUCK HC VOL 03 CASTLES SECRET (MAR131167

  • DONALD AND HIS NEPHEWS FACE GHOSTS, WILD WEST VILLAINY, AND MUCH MORE IN NEW COLLECTION With this volume, The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library loops back to Barkss earlier days, collecting the entirety of Barkss (astounding) 1948 output. The title story, The Old Castles Secret, is notable not just for being the first full-length 32-page adventure instigated by Scrooge McDuck (in his second-ever appearance), but for featuring some of Barkss spookiest, lushest settings in old Clan McDuck castle of Dismal Downs. The other long story, The Sheriff of Bullet Valley, plunks Donald and the nephews in the Wild West, with Donald as an overconfident deputy having to deal with some high-tech rustlers. The book also includes the less-known In Darkest Africa, originally published in a giveaway and unreleased for decades. This volume also features an even 10 of Barkss dynamic Walt Disneys Comics and Stories 10-pagers, including Wintertime Wager (the first appearance of a not-yet-lucky-but-still-obnoxious Gladstone Gander); Spoil the Rod (in which the exquisitely named educational professor Pulpheart Clabberhead is brought in to help tame the nephews); Rocket Race to the Moon (a rare full-on adventureinterplanetary, no lessin the short form); Gladstone Returns and Links Highjinks (two more Gladstone yarns); and five more stories... plus a half-dozen hilarious one-page gags. Of course, once again all the stories have been shot from crisp originals, then re-colored (and printed) to match, for the first time since their original release over 60 years ago, the colorful yet soft hues of the originalsand of course the book is rounded off with essays about Barks, the Ducks, and these specific stories by Barks experts from all over the world.
