Barks Comics to be re-published!

Carl Barks is one of the greatest storytellers of the past 100 years. The creator of Scrooge McDuck, Gladstone Gander, and everything else "Duck" that we love about Disney, he told hundreds upon hundreds of wonderful stories and adventures through his fantastic comic books. I am the proud owner of about 25 of these comic books, but that is nothing compared to his entire canon of work. Every story is so funny and thoroughly entertaining. He worked very hard to make each character unique, as well as make every story very different and engaging. Carl Barks was definitely a true master of Duck Comics.

That is why I was ecstatic to find out that, starting this fall, all of his comics are being republished, in hard cover anthologies! Read all of the details here, and be sure to pre-order yours as soon as they're available! Many Disney fans aren't privy to the treasure trove that was the collection of Carl Barks' work--if you aren't aware of it, become aware! They are really, really great and special things to read.
