Grandma Duck's Farm Friends / Four Color Comics v2 #1010 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Grandma Duck's Farm Friends / Four Color Comics v2 #1010, 1959 - After years as a supporting character, the ever-maternal Grandma Duck appears in her own short-lived series. All four stories are peppered with various supporting characters, including Uncle Scrooge, Dumbo, Big Bad Wolf, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck and his trio of nephews. Carl Barks' clever scripts are visualized with thoroughly likable drawings. Throughout the issue his rural settings are drawn with nostalgia and skillful simplicity. All four tales are equally enjoyable, but the Scrooge story is my personal favorite. "Sheepish Cowboys" was later reprinted in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #293 and Walt Disney Comics Digest #50. This is number 1 of 3 Grandma Duck's Farm Friends issues with Barks art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Barks or Grandma Duck's Farm Friends issues. See also this blog's Barks checklist.
