Donald Duck #46 - Cark Barks art

Donald Duck v1 #46, 1956 - Deep in a Central American jungle, Donald and the boys retrieve lost documents for Uncle Scrooge. Their reward is in jeopardy, however, when Gladstone Gander sticks his beak in. Cark Barks' last full length story has all the earmarks of his best efforts: well-researched exotic scenery, native ethnic characters and spacious panels. Among several memorable pages, my favorite is the precipitous crossing of a rickety bridge (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in Donald Duck #98. This is number 33 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.
