Walt Disney's Gyro Gearloose / Four Color Comics v2 #1095, 1960 - Carl Barks supplies the artwork for entire issue, his second of this series. Of the four tales, none stands out from the rest, though all are drawn with a high degree of craftsmanship. In the lead story, meticulous detailed caverns (pages 6-7) and a hive-like cloud of savings bonds (pages 9-10) display an astonishing level of effort by the artist. These traits and more distinguish Barks from his peers in this genre. "Mixed Up Mixer" was reprinted in Vacation Parade v2 #1 and "The Bear Tamer" was reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #43. This is number 2 of 5 Gyro Gearloose issues with Barks art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Barks or Gyro Gearloose issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
