Uncle Scrooge Goes To Disneyland #1 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge Goes To Disneyland (Dell Giant) v1 #1, 1957 - Uncle Scrooge and a bevy of characters make a day of Disney's first theme park. While this comic seems an opportune promotion for Disneyland, very few of the attractions are actually shown. The main story is interspersed with untitled shorter segments, featuring Alice in Wonderland, Mickey Mouse and Goofy and the Junior Woodchucks. The opening Carl Barks tale is exceptional, filling skillfully drawn characters within large and sometimes irregular-shaped panels. The humorously chaotic climax (see interior page below) is perfectly balanced and composed by the hand of a master. This story was later reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #28. See today's posts or more Barks, Uncle Scrooge or Uncle Scrooge Goes To Disneyland issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
