Donald Duck #60 - Carl Barks art, mis-attributed Barks cover


Walt Disney's Donald Duck v1 #60, 1960 - Two terrific Carl Barks stories make this issue a special treat. In the first, Donald and Uncle Scrooge investigate the source of gigantic ants that terrorize a high society picnic. The second tells of Donald's determination (along with Daisy Duck's help) in winning a water ski contest. Though vastly different in length, Barks illustrates both tales with large, spacious panels. This works especially well in the longer story, where size matters thematically. "Donald Duck and the Titanic Ants" was later reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #4. Other artists in this issue include Tony Strobl. This is number 37 of 43 Donald Duck issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
