Porky Pig / Four Color Comics v2 #48 - Carl Barks art


Porky Pig / Four Color Comics v2 #48, 1944 - Porky Pig joins up with the Canadian Mounties in this fairly early Carl Barks tale. According to a source, the publisher and/or Warner Brothers was unhappy with his rendition of their characters. Consequently, Porky Pig, Petunia and Bugs Bunny were redrawn by other artists in nearly all instances. Barks' hand is most obvious on the secondary characters, most of which are recognizable types often used in his Disney comics. The second story, "Porky and the Pirate", closely resembles Barks, but not enough for an attribution. It's possible another artist may have emulated him for the sake of consistency. Compare this sixty year old issue with Barks' terrific Porky Pig cover commissioned for the 1977 Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. This is number 1 of 1 Porky Pig issues with Barks art and/or covers.
