Uncle Scrooge #27 - Carl Barks art & cover

Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge v1 #27, 1959 - Uncle Scrooge accepts another challenge from Flintheart Glomgold, the multi-trillionaire who first claimed to be the wealthiest duck alive in Uncle Scrooge #15. While difficult to compare to a beloved classic, this tale does lack the exotic settings of the original. Carl Barks' funniest moments are toward the end, as Donald and his nephews help Uncle Scrooge defend his money pile against more extreme cheating methods. Flintheart Glomgold employs a giant cannon near the final scene, a typically clever Barks method of using scale to build up to a story's climax (see interior page below). "The Money Champ" was later reprinted in Walt Disney Comics Digest #22. This is number 27 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).
