Uncle Scrooge #26 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #26, 1959 - Uncle Scrooge and his entourage of ducks travel to the Andes, looking for the Incan goldmines mentioned by the Spanish explorer Pizarro. Carl Barks' splendid renditions of Conquistador and Incan attire are wonderful and convincing. A few unusually-shaped panels help break the monotony of a repetitive grid, and are used when certain scenes require more room (see interior page below). The bird's eye view of an ancient settlement on page 12 establishes not only the setting but a sense of scale and space. This story was later reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #8. Two Barks shorts accompanying the lead feature generally meet expectations. This is number 26 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
