Uncle Scrooge #11 - Carl Barks art & cover

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #11, 1955 - With an old Southern mansion at stake, Scrooge must raise a sunken steamboat and finish a race started by his uncle 85 years before. In an odd scene, Scrooge idealizes and fantasizes about being a plantation owner. That aside, Carl Barks' artwork is terrific throughout, especially the buoyant steamship on page 10. His second tale places the ducks in the Australian desert, as Scrooge proves his talent at finding riches in the remotest of places. While visually spare, the storytelling more than compensates. This is number 11 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Barks or Uncle Scrooge issues. See also this blog's Carl Barks checklist.
