Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #273 - Carl Barks art

Walt Disney's Comics and Stories v1 #273, 1963 - Donald Duck and his nephews embark on a group whirlwind tour of Europe. Unfortunately, the frenetic pace only allows mere seconds at each attraction. Carl Barks' drawings pick up speed and heighten the tension, creating few breaks in the process. Still, the artist manages to include plenty of details of Venice, Italy (see interior page below). Rife with palazzos, gondolas and canals, Barks captures the city's essence masterfully. Other characters featured in this issue include Gyro Gearloose, Ludwig Von Drake, Uncle Scrooge, Mickey Mouse and the Big Bad Wolf. See today's posts or more Barks or Walt Disney's Comics and Stories issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
