“In Carl Barks' Duckburg we see all the human frailties: Donald Duck's anger, Scrooge's ambition, the Beagle Boys' greed. Barks was a virtuoso artist and writer who combined breakneck action with detailed and subtle art. You will find a master at his peak in 'Lost in the Andes,' and your inner-child will thank you.”
— Eric Schultheis, Books Inc., Berkeley, CA

Description


There are sea monsters, millionaires, spies, and more in the latest volume of Carl Barks’s internationally beloved Donald Duck comics.


It’s the greatest get-rich-quick scheme ever! When a twister scoops up Scrooge’s cash and rains it back down, Donald becomes an instant millionaire … but so does everyone else! And when a mighty ship vanishes at sea, detective Donald tracks down the culprit — a giant sea monster! Then, on a trip to the Riviera, it’s all spies, counterspies, and counter-counter spies when Huey, Dewey, and Louie run afoul of the mysterious Madame Triple-X. And when Donald and the boys wind up in Old California, the rush is on — for the gold in them thar hills!Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of outrageous hijinks, preposterous situations, bamboozlement, befuddlement, and all-around cartooning brilliance. Over 200 pages of stories, each meticulously restored and newly colored, as well as insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.



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.
