Uncle Scrooge / Four Color Comics v2 #456 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge / Four Color Comics v2 #456, 1953 - Due to a resurgent memory, Uncle Scrooge recalls where he hid a cache of Yukon gold in the distant past. Donald Duck and his nephews accompany him to Alaska, where his claim is jumped by an old flame. In the second story, Uncle Scrooge is tricked into believing that fish is now the national currency. Carl Barks' layouts and drawings in both is admirable, emphasizing clarity in the storytelling. The Alaska tale is a tad better, mostly due to the rustic, wilderness settings. The main story was later reprinted in Best of Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck #1. This is number 2 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
