Christmas Parade #2 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Christmas Parade v1 #2 (Dell Giant), 1950 - Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Louie and Dewey obsess over an erector set as the holidays draw near. Carl Barks cleverly uses a Christmas card motif for the opening splash, showing the boys peering into a toy store window. Soon, Uncle Scrooge, Grandma Duck, Daisy Duck and Gladstone Gander are drawn in due to humorous circumstances. Like the previous issue, Barks uses small flourishes to enhance the yuletide mood, including decorative initial caps on many of the panels. Superbly paced and lovingly drawn, the story is warmly conveyed and memorably engaging. This tale was first reprinted in Gold Key's Christmas Parade #6. This is number 2 of 5 Christmas Parade issues with Barks art and/or covers and number 1 of 6 Christmas Parade issues with Hubbard art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Barks or Christmas Parade issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
