Picnic Party #8 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Picnic Party (Dell Giant) v1 #8, 1957 - Within this giant Dell issue, Carl Barks draws a brief but enjoyable Gyro Gearloose picnic story. He employs larger panels than usual, suggesting the spaciousness of the outdoor setting. Lovingly rendered, the artwork is spare without being simplistic. There is no significant lack of detail, especially in the backgrounds. This story was later reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #4. Other artists in this issue include Tony Strobl. Other characters featured in this issue include Mickey Mouse, Jiminy Cricket and Brer Rabbit. This is number 1 of 1 Picnic Party issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Barks or Picnic Party issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
