Carl Barks
Walt Disney's Donald Duck / Four Color Comics v2 #203, 1948 - With malicious intent, a witch lures Donald's nephews to her cabin with a gold Christmas tree. Carl Barks seems to have used the same character design from Snow White, while adding a more comical feel. Donald Duck's attempts to rescue Huey, Louie and Dewey are brilliantly funny. The old witch's transformations, especially into inanimate objects, are equally entertaining. No overly large panels in this tale, but Barks' storytelling skills are supreme. A short Xmas tale starring Mickey Mouse and Goofy tale also resides in this issue. This story was later reprinted in Christmas Parade v2 #4. This is number 10 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.
