“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


In this collection of the internationally beloved comics, there’s a spooky lost mine, a runaway train, and a trip to the stars!


In our title story, Uncle Scrooge, Donald, and the nephews are hot on the trail of a pair of old saddlebags filled with gold nuggets.  Then, Donald dons a suit of armor with a rubber sword for a costume party, but he embarrasses Daisy and becomes the object of scorn and ridicule — until a pair of lions break free! And when Gyro Gearloose invents a virtual reality headset, Donald and the boys find themselves menaced by fearsome creatures on other worlds. Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of imaginative exuberance, high-concept hijinks, and all-around cartooning brilliance.

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.
