Donald Duck #54 - Carl Barks art

Walt Disney's Donald Duck v1 #54, 1957 - Duckburg's pickle crop falters due to a new malicious insect. In search of a remedy, Donald and his nephews travel to South America, where they encounter a hidden valley teeming with dinosaurs. Carl Barks captures a sense of adventure while maintaining his quick-witted humor. Though similar in theme to the "The Lost World", the artist combines humor and science fiction into a lighthearted parody. The hilarity of panicked, stampeding alligators on page 13 is overshadowed by the massive stampeding dinosaurs on page 25. Barks exceeds expectations on one of his last full-length Donald Duck tales. This is number 36 of 43 Donald Duck issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Barks or Donald Duck issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
