Uncle Scrooge #22 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #22, 1955 - Uncle Scrooge relaxes at a remote cabin, only to be piqued by the legend of a gold river. The catch: it only appears to unselfish people. The character's penny-pinching tirades seem especially funny this issue. Carl Barks orchestrates his writing and drawing perfectly in this tale, which includes several large panels. The exploding money bin, the plague of frogs and bubbling waterfall are but a few of the visuals that delight readers. In a different tale, Gyro Gearloose creates yet another invention (this time a thought machine) that goes awry. This is number 22 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
