Uncle Scrooge #25 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #25, 1959 - Carl Barks takes the legend of the Flying Dutchman and adapts it for his own purposes. Uncle Scrooge and company set out on the high seas in search of gold bullion, encountering the ghostly vessel along the way. The artist saves the largest panels for depicting the centuries-old ship, establishing a sense of scale within the settings. The bigger sizes also allow for greater detail, showing the multiple masts, sails, and rigging relevant to ships of that era. This story was later reprinted in Uncle Scrooge #87. Similarly, Barks' rendition of a pyramid in the second Scrooge tale is equally impressive. An enjoyable Gyro Gearloose short rounds out the rest of this comic. This is 25 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues by Barks.
