Already out of print. This gift box set collects two volumes. The Ghost Sheriff of Last Gasp (Vol. 15) presents 20 10-page classics, including the title story, about one stubborn ghost who has his sights set on Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. In Secret of Hondorica (Vol. 17), Uncle Scrooge loses vital papers in a plane crash in the jungle and sends Donald and the nephews to retrieve them — but wily cousin Gladstone decides to claim the reward for himself!
More about Volume 15: Donald is made stationmaster for a tiny out-of-the-way railroad station, but his first delivery is 10,000 baby turkeys — and they’re all hungry! And when the Coast Guard announces it found the wreck of a steamship that sank with Uncle Scrooge’s gold on board, the race is on to recover it ahead of Scrooge’s rivals.
Scrooge hustles Donald and the nephews into his private submarine — but it’s Christmas Eve, and the boys are afraid Santa won’t be able to find them to deliver their presents. The boys appeal to Uncle Scrooge, but — well, his name is Scrooge. Plus lots more stories with Barks favorites, including the wacky inventor Gyro Gearloose, the irritatingly lucky Gladstone Gander, and the ever-glamorous and sensible Daisy Duck.
Insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts, including a look at Barks by Don Ault, notes on each and every story, extra artwork, and full page, full color covers for every issue of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, #159-177, where these all first appeared. Plus material from Four Color #564 (cover idea), Donald Duck #35 and #36 (Barks's covers), and the rare giveaway, Donald Duck Tells About Kites from 1954.
Vol 17: When Uncle Scrooge loses some vital papers in a plane crash in the jungles of Hondorica, he sends Donald and his nephews to rescue them. But wily cousin Gladstone Gander gets wind of the expedition and decides to get there first — to claim the reward for himself! Then Donald becomes a sales agent for the Break & Bruise Insurance Co. and sells a policy to Uncle Scrooge. But Scrooge is determined to collect, so Donald has to become his bodyguard to protect him from harm.
And when the Junior Woodchuck boys are challenged by the Chickadee Patrol girls to build a wilderness bridge, Donald’s efforts to help put him in danger — and the boys have to choose between rescuing him and winning the contest.
This collects one longer story, the title story, from the individual Donald Duck comics--a great 24-page, globe-trotting adventure in the tradition of the Four Color series. All the other stories are those classic ten-pagers that continue to stand up all these years later. And as usual, the fun bonus is story notes that discuss each tale and put it in context with Barks' entire era. Also the original issue covers, full page, plus more features.
Carl Barks delivers two superb collections of outrageous hijinks, preposterous situations, and all-around cartooning brilliance. Over 400 pages of stories, each meticulously restored and newly colored.
Presented in a deluxe slipcase set at a special price that even Uncle Scrooge would approve!
