Vacation Parade #1 - Carl Barks art


Walt Disney's Vacation Parade v1 #1 / Dell Giant, 1950 - Sporting an optical illusion cover, this Dell giant is one of the most sought after issues by Carl Barks. The artist contributes three wonderful tales, each impeccably drawn. "Vacation Time" is one of his lengthiest Donald Duck adventures at thirty-plus pages. Its opening splash of the duck family in the great outdoors is both comical and breathtaking. Many of Barks' page layouts are unconventional, using erratically shaped panels to full effect. Of his two remaining stories, "Grandma Duck" maintains a similarly high level of draftsmanship though nearly half the page length. All three duck tales were first reprinted in Donald Duck #257. "Vacation Time" and "Camp Counselor" were later reprinted in Vacation Parade v2 #1. Other characters featured in this issue include Pluto, Lil Hiawatha, Bucky Bug, Chip n' Dale, Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Lil Bad Wolf. This is number 1 of 1 Vacation Parade issues with Barks art and/or covers.
