- Full Description
Ten stories, mostly unavailable since their original printings in comic books. The stories include three early Benny Burro stories, five Droopy stories, two Barney Bear and Benny Burro from 1945, Andy Panda from 1943, and a 24-page Porky (Pig) of the Mounties with Bugs Bunny, from 1944. All of the stories are sourced from high quality masters except for three for which there are no known surviving masters.
Also includes all kinds of reference, notes on the stories specifically, the series in general, and also an index and cross-reference to ALL Barks' non-Disney work.
As collected in this book, newly colored and sourced from original masters, the stories look much better than in ANY previous printings. In this edition, the Porky Pig story has been newly restored with new black line plates and completely recolored. It looks far better than the original printing or any subsequent reprints.
The Andy Panda and 1953 Droopy story also have been restored with new black line plates and their color has been cleaned up and partially recolored; this also represents a significant improvement over an earlier edition of this book. The two Happy Hound (Droopy) stories were altered from the way Barks drew them before their original publication and appear here in restored versions which are intended to showcase them as Barks originally intended for them to be seen. The same is true for the two Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories; indeed, that is the reason for their inclusion here.
Every story that Carl Barks wrote or drew featuring Disney characters during his career as a comic book creator has been reprinted, often many times, in comic books and albums, and books. The Disney work is the most important of Barks’ work, but Barks also wrote and/or drew 36 other comic book stories featuring non-Disney characters between 1943 and 1953; these have been less-well served in reprinting and are much less well-known. They are generally comparable in quality to the average of the Donald Duck work he was doing at the same time--quite creative and delightful, they stand well with Barks' best short story work.
When combined with Craig Yoë and IDW’s The Carl Barks Big Book of Barney Bear, The Unavailable Carl Barks (In Color) brings back into print all of the non-Disney comic book stories written and/or drawn by Carl Barks.
