Uncle Scrooge #21 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #21, 1955 - Uncle Scrooge, fearful of someone robbing his money vault, stealthily relocates his fortune underground. The Beagle Boys eventually discover it and proceed to extract it with an oil drilling rig. This battle of wits is one of Carl Barks' best early Scrooge tales. The plot eventually culminates in an explosion, where a massive gush of coins becomes the visual high point of the story. The artist also includes a brief Gyro Gearloose tale and a handful of single-pagers. This is number 21 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 Barks checklist.
