Christmas in Disneyland #1 - Carl Barks art

Walt Disney's Christmas in Disneyland (Dell Giant) v1 #1, 1957: Accompanying Santa Claus on his Christmas eve journey, a little boy and girl listen intently to his holiday tales. His stories feature a variety of Walt Disney characters including Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Chip N' Dale, L'il Bad Wolf and Snow White. The issue's highlight, however, features Uncle Scrooge, Donald Duck and his nephews on a voyage to the South Seas. Carl Barks uses this unexpected setting to tell one of his best holiday tales. From his depiction of a volcanic pit (page 10) to the scene of an exploding island (page 16), Barks' visuals are masterful. This story was later reprinted in >Mickey and Donald #17 and Walt Disney Comics Digest #38. Other artists in this issue include Al Hubbard. This is number 1 of 1 Christmas in Disneyland issues with Barks art and/or covers.
