Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Donald Duck / Four Color Comics v2 #282, 1950 - Hanging around the dockyards, Huey, Louie and Dewey buy a parrot that counts obesessively. The story soon takes them to South America, where Carl Barks takes the opportunity to illustrate the exotic. There's plenty of amusing sight gags, especially the sequences where the parrot escapes. Details abound on several panels, including Uncle Scrooge in his money bin (page 4 panel 5) and the long view of a merchant ship (page 14 panel 7). Barks also does a credible job on the cover, considered a classic by many. Both cover and story were later reprinted in Donald Duck #229. This is number 15 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.
