Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. By Bill Karp. Art by Al Taliaferro. It's not Barks, but Al Taliaferro's work is superb, giving us so much personality and fun from Donald, Daisy, Granma, and especially those rambunctious kids. But Donald is usually trying to outsmart someone or something, and he just never seems to win the battle of wits. Classic!! And beautifully reproduced with bright, vibrant colors true to the original strips. From deep in the Disney Vaults, three more complete years of Sunday page fun--every full color page from January 1943 through December 1945. Note: These copies have bumped corners and slightly torn or creased dust jackets.

It's not Barks, but Al Taliaferro's work is superb, giving us so much personality and fun from Donald, Daisy, Granma, and especially those rambunctious kids. But Donald is usually trying to outsmart someone or something, and he just never seems to win the battle of wits. Classic!! And beautifully reproduced with bright, vibrant colors true to the original strips. From deep in the Disney Vaults, three more complete years of Sunday page fun--every full color page from January 1943 through December 1945.

After braving the privations of wartime, which cropped up only on rare occasions, by the end of this book WWII is history and the ducks are up to hi-jinx mayhem in Duckberg.

Disney scholar Alberto Becattini provides an introduction that puts the strips in historical perspective, and tells us about George Waiss, who joined the creative team in 1943, taking on the inking chores over Al Taliaferro's wonderful pencils. These are the same strips that were cut down, re-formatted, and reprinted as one-pagers within the monthly issues of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories. Carl Barks clearly based his duck stories on Taliaferro's pioneering work, which is why these can be almost as much fun as the  Barks stories. Carl Barks' first duck story appeared in Four Color #9, published with an August 1942 date--so this work was being done before, during, and after his first tales in Four Color and beginning in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #31 (cover date April, 1943).

Taliaferro had started at the Walt Disney Studio, hired on the spot in 1931. At first he inked Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse newspaper strip. He then went on to draw the Silly Symphonies Sunday page (also being collected now). It was there, in 1934, he first drew Donald Duck, the character with whom he would become forever associated. He drew the Donald Duck newspaper strip from its inception in 1938 until his death in 1969!
