Donald Duck / Four Color Comics v2 #328 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Donald Duck / Four Color Comics v2 #328, 1951 - After a car accident, Donald and his nephews are nursed by local indians. Their concocted remedies transport the ducks back to nineteenth century California. Spanish culture and characters are prevalent in this history lesson by Carl Barks (see interior page below). The architecture and colorful attire appear well researched and convincing. The artwork itself is excellent, containing a high level of detail that adds dimension to the settings. Like many other efforts, Barks elevates the humor genre to new highs. This story was later reprinted in Donald Duck #254. This is number 20 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.
