- Full Description
The Pixilated Parrot Volume 9: Donald gives Uncle Scrooge a parrot for his birthday but the feathered troublemaker escapes with the combination to Scrooge's safe. Then, Donald and the boys are shanghaied and face perils in the desert in "Ancient Persia." Terror of The Beagle Boys Volume 10: Sea monsters, millionaires, spies, and the first appearance of the Beagle Boys. Full-length Four-Color adventures take the ducks to the Riviera in "Dangerous Disguise," to Loch Ness with Uncle Scrooge in "No Such Varmit," and to "Old California" in Barks' own favorite adventure!
In Persia, they uncover a lost city--and its reconstituted inhabitants! And Barks cuts loose from his regular panel designs to deliver one of his finest stories, "Vacation Time" (it has its own Wikipedia page), as Donald displays unusual depths of courage and heroism when he has to rescue Huey, Dewey, and Louie on a wilderness outing gone wrong. This features one of my all-time favorite Barks splash pages, reproduced in part on the cover here.
When Donald and the boys wind up in Old California, the rush is on — for the gold in them thar hills! Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of outrageous hijinks, preposterous situations, bamboozlement, befuddlement, and all-around cartooning brilliance.
Plus a whole bunch of fun 10-page stories from Walt Disney's Comics & Stories. Ten complete stories in all, including six LONG Four-Color adventures, which also include "Big-Top Bedlam" and "The Magic Hourglass." Superb work from the pinnacle of Bark's creative period. With notes about each story, and "Carl Barks: Life Among the Ducks" by Don Ault.
