Summer Fun #2 - Cark Barks art


Walt Disney's Summer Fun (Dell Giant) v1 #2, 1959 - Like most Dell Giants, this issue has stories interspersed with games and puzzles. Carl Barks draws a pair of delightful tales that outshine the rest of the book. In the first, Uncle Scrooge and Gyro Gearloose suffer from the same medical condition and share their remedy. Though most of the panels are small and numerous, it is reliably well drawn. In the second story, Donald Duck and his nephews try their hand at filmmaking. Their adventure leads them to the African jungle and encountering its wild inhabitants. This effort has more humorous situations and overall more visual appeal. "Jungle Hijinks" was later reprinted in Donald Duck Adventures #1 and "Fun? What's That?" was later reprinted in Uncle Scrooge #223. Other Disney characters featured in their own stories include Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Dumbo, Jiminy Cricket and Pluto. This is number 1 of 1 Summer Fun issues with Barks art and/or covers.
