Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #155 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories v1 #155, 1953 - Placing pots of "gold" at the end of the rainbow, Uncle Scrooge tests his relatives to determine who's smart enough to use the money wisely. The winner would stand to inherit the miser's vast fortune. Gladstone Gander, Donald Duck and Huey, Louie and Dewey each make different choices based on their personalities. This Carl Barks tale is competently drawn and carefully sequenced. While the settings seem mundane and the layouts repetitive, the visual storytelling itself is effective. This story was later reprinted in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #348. Other artists in this issue include Paul Murry.
