Uncle Scrooge #15 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #15, 1956 - Flintheart Glomgold, a South African mine owner, lays claim to being the richest duck in the world. A challenge ensues, resulting in a tally of his fortune against Scrooge's. When they come out even, it all boils down to who has the longest ball of string. Carl Barks makes use of the African settings to create hilarious and visually clever situations. The wild animal stampede and subsequent collision pages 17-18 is especially good. Rounding out the book are two more enjoyable Barks tales: Scrooge moves his massive money bin to make way for progress and Gyro Gearloose invents a languare translator with unintended results. See today's posts or more Barks or Uncle Scrooge issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
