Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #148 - Carl Barks art & cover

 Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories v1 #148, 1953 - With all his money spent on Christmas, Donald Duck hatches a plan to get a free dinner from his cheapskate Uncle Scrooge. Coinciding with the holidays, this story is not quite as festive as it should be. Carl Barks instead gives us a stubborn battles of wills between Donald and Scrooge. Half the story is set in a restaurant, which provides little opportunity for visual interest. Still, Barks' drawing skills are impressive. This story was later reprinted in >Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #328. The artist later recreated the cover as a painting. It was subsequently used for >Christmas Parade v3 #1. Other artists in this issue include Paul Murray.

  1. The "snowfall" effect on the website certainly works well with this cover. The window that frames Donald has some perspective/interior space issues- it looks more like a picture on the wall.
