Description


Two classic Barks Uncle Scrooge volumes repackaged in a holiday gift set.


A double dose of the world’s most adventurous duck and his hapless nephew! Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge: “Only a Poor Old Man” and Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge: “The Seven Cities of Gold” make up this special boxed set of two of our most popular Donald Duck albums to date, exquisitely re-presenting the Duck stories of Carl Barks, one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century. The lead story of Only a Poor Old Man features the inspiring and tragic tale of how Scrooge McDuck won his fortune — and lost his one true love! The Seven Cities of Gold finds our intrepid Ducks on a treacherous trek to the desert to find the riches of a fabled lost civilization — including a scene that inspired the opening of Raiders of the Lost Ark! Handsomely presented in an attractive box set at a special price that Uncle Scrooge himself would approve.

About the Author


Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.

Praise For…


Carl Barks... was probably the best artist and writer working in the
entire field of comics. ... Ingenious, clever, and funny, the Barks Duck
Books... are as readable and immediate to me as an adult as they were
when I first discovered them as a child.
