Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Donald Duck / Four Color Comics v2 #199, 1948 - Driving through an old western town, Donald sees a reward for bringing in cattle rustlers. He's subsequently deputized and raring to go. Carl Barks is meticulous in depicting the various cowboy characters and the rocky terrain of the region. The locale is less exotic than pervious tales but no less well drawn. Barks' cover is a masterpiece, using the guns and bullet paths to radiate out from the focal point. There is a suggestion of purity as well as resolve in the face of danger. This is number 9 of 43 Donald Duck issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).See today's posts or more Barks or Donald Duck issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
