Uncle Scrooge #17 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #17, 1955 - Uncle Scrooge bids a trillion dollars for Bombastium, a rare element with an as-yet-undiscovered use. Donald and his nephews accompany him to the South Pole in this thoroughly engaging Carl Barks tale. While the settings are sparse, the artist nonetheless delivers some amusing scenes. Among these is Scrooge's pursuit of his prize atop a leaping sperm whale. This lengthier-than-usual tale allows room left for a Gyro Gearloose four-pager. In this story, the wacky inventor outperforms a group of fishermen, using his wits rather than technology. This is number 17 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.
