Description


In this collection of world-famous Disney comics stories, there are icebergs at sea, Gyro's teleporter, the Ducks are captured by cavemen — and the Junior Woodchucks fight to defend the environment!


In this collection of world-famous Disney comics stories, Donald Duck decides to enlist Gladstone Gander and his unfailing good luck to prove a fortune cookie wrong when it warns, "You can't do anything right today." (Good luck with that!) Next, it's off to the roaring North Seas, on one of Uncle Scrooge's schooners, where Donald and the boys compete to bring in the most fish. But they're falling behind — until Donald unlocks Scrooge's "Secret Device." Then Donald gets into trouble when Gyro invents a matter transmitter that only half works. And Donald and the boys, while on a trip to the Grand Canyon (to expose a fraud), get captured by cavemen! Plus: Daisy Duck strikes a blow for women's equality when she and  her nieces climb Precipice Peak — a feat that no man has ever dared! Also in this volume — Carl Barks's stories of the Junior Woodchucks starring Huey, Dewey, and Louie, written and penciled by Barks with finishes by internationally acclaimed Duck artist Daan Jippes!

Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of surprise, delight, comedy, adventure, and all-around cartooning brilliance: 200 pages of story and art, each meticulously restored and newly colored with 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.

Daan Jippes (b. 1945), an internationally beloved Duck artist, lives in the Netherlands.
