Uncle Scrooge #12 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #12, 1955 - Desiring a golden coat worthy of his stature, Scrooge encounters a group of men who claim to know where the mythical golden fleece resides. The subsequent voyage to Colchis goes awry, with Huey, Louie and Dewey attempting a rescue. Greek ruins and fantastical creatures abound in this lengthy Carl Barks tale. As usual, the settings are sumptuously drawn and composed. The Larkies, a male parody of mythical Harpies, is one of Barks' sillier character inventions. This is number 12 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.
