Uncle Scrooge #23 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #23, 1955 - The ghost of a long-dead pirate is responsible for the wreck of several cargo ships, including those belonging to Uncle Scrooge. Naturally, he and his nephew Donald Duck travel to the shipwrecks to investigate further. Carl Barks does his best on larger panels, and there are two beautifully rendered scenes of pirate-era and modern day vessels. Just as engaging is the kitchen fight scene on page eleven, with its flurry of flying pans, utensils and cooking ingredients. Two shorter tales round out the book, both superbly plotted and drawn. Gyro Gearloose surreptitiously tries to learn how to swim in one story, giving Barks plenty of opportunity for visual gags. This is number 23 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.
