Vacation in Disneyland / Four Color Comics v2 #1025 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Vacation in Disneyland / Four Color Comics v2 #1025, 1959 - In a clever theme park promotion, this issue places beloved characters in various spots around Disneyland. The collection of tales includes Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Minnie at the submarine ride, Uncle Scrooge and Grandma Duck in Frontierland, Donald Duck and his nephews at the Matterhorn, and Gyro Gearloose and Gus in Tomorrowland. Carl Barks draws three of the four stories, all superbly told. The Scrooge tale has a more impressive opening panel and more elaborate pioneer-era costumes and settings. The center spread uses a game format that incorporates a map of Disneyland. "Dream Planet" was later reprinted in Vacation Parade v2 #1. This is number 1 of 1 Vacation in Disneyland issue with Barks art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Barks or Vacation in Disneyland issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
