Uncle Scrooge #7 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #7, 1954 - Following an arduous desert trail, Donald and his nephews join Uncle Scrooge in his search for the Seven Cities of Cibola. But with so much gold at stake, can the Beagle Boys be far behind? Carl Barks makes even the vast, dry desert visually interesting. His cast of duck characters are funny and expressive, even more so when they discover a Spanish galleon and cities built within cliff walls. With a penchant for contraptions, the artist also includes a pitfall not dissimilar to the Indiana Jones movies. This story and a single-pager were later reprinted in Best of Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge #2. Barks' second tale is shorter, about a missing million dollar carrier pigeon. This story was later reprinted in Best of Walt Disney Comics #96172. This is number 7 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
