They were taken to the publisher's incinerator and unceremoniously burned! Other price and ownership information will only be shared if it has been made publicly available in the past or if we have the direct consent of the owners. In his reply letter Barks admitted that he did not have any idea about that artwork ; what they are, who took them or their whereabouts during the years, and neither did Chase Craig Barks editor have any ideas. It appears that somebody at Western Publishing took the opportunity while moving the offices from New York to Racine and asked permission to take some original artwork that would have otherwise been trashed and burned. Was the permission given? Nobody seems to know anymore..

Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book by Michael Barrier is described by its author as several books in one, and so it is. But first, it is the foundational work about the Disney Ducks as they were developed in the comic-book medium by writer and artist Carl Barks from the mids through the mids. Barrier's three sections of this large-format book begin with a Preface, an expanded version of his biographical, historical, and analytical essay, "The Lord of Quackly Hall" This Preface is ninety pages, including some black-and-white reproductions, and is very thoughtful and appreciative. Another hundred pages is a bibliography of Barks' work in assorted comic books, including some non-Duck ones. And there are some appendices, including an overall chronological listing. The bibliography is annotated, with niceties such as changes in reprinted versions as well as assorted comments by Barrier and by Barks himself:.

I'll expand and refine this list as time goes by, using it not only to correct errors, including the most egregious typos, but to address questions that have been raised since the book was published. One such question has been answered by Kim Weston. Kim wrote in December "The original owner of the discovery copy, first reported to Bob Overstreet some 25 years ago, got it at an open house put on by Florida Power and Light on a Saturday morning in Either at the same time or at another open house he also got the previous year's edition of the Pinocchio kites giveaway. And he just kept them both with his other Disney comics. He collected or accumulated Disney comics, and particularly Barks's ducks, for about a decade when he was young and still had them as an adult. For a while, as an adult he sought out issues to fill holes in his decade-long run of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories and other titles.

He is best known for his work in Disney comic books , as the writer and artist of the first Donald Duck stories and as the creator of Scrooge McDuck. Rockerduck and Magica De Spell Will Eisner called him "the Hans Christian Andersen of comic books. He had an older brother named Clyde. His paternal grandparents were David Barks and his wife Ruth Shrum.
