Uncle Scrooge #14 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #14, 1956 - Uncle Scrooge and company go to Tibet to search for the lost crown of Genghis Khan. Little do they realize that they'll have to wrest it from the lair of the Abominable Snowman. The Himalayan setting can be a tad monotonous, with only snowy mountainous backgrounds. Carl Barks does his best to conceal the monster until the inevitable confrontation in a larger panel. Interestingly, his version of the Yeti is more goofy and child-like than ferocious. Barks also draws two shorter stories: Gyro Gearloose's dilemma of a noisy neighbor and Scrooge's search for oil on a square inch of land. This is number 14 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Barks or Uncle Scrooge issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
