Walt Disney's Donald Duck Gift Box Set: "Lost in the Andes" & "Trail of the Unicorn": Vols. 7 & 8 (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library) (Hardcover)
December 2011 Indie Next List
“In Carl Barks' Duckburg we see all the human frailties: Donald Duck's anger, Scrooge's ambition, the Beagle Boys' greed. Barks was a virtuoso artist and writer who combined breakneck action with detailed and subtle art. You will find a master at his peak in 'Lost in the Andes,' and your inner-child will thank you.”
— Eric Schultheis, Books Inc., Berkeley, CA
Affordable gift set of two Carl Barks’ books that collect world-famous, all-ages Duck stories.
A double dose of Donald Duck! Walt Disney’s Donald Duck: “Lost in the Andes” and Walt Disney’s Donald Duck: “Trail of the Unicorn” make up this special boxed set of two of our most popular Donald Duck albums exquisitely representing the Duck stories of Carl Barks, one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century. The title story of Lost in the Andes features the Ducks’ memorable quest to South America in search of rare “square eggs” and Trail of the Unicorn’s title tale is a trek to the Himalayas to find that fabled mythical creature. Handsomely presented in a stunningly beautiful and colorful box set at a special price that even Uncle Scrooge would approve.
About the Author
Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.
I recall reading some of those Donald Duck comics in my youth, never understanding that they stood head and shoulders over anything else available at the time — or since. ... You can’t get the masterpieces for a dime anymore but they are available [in] Walt Disney’s Donald Duck Box Set: Lost in the Andes and Trail of the Unicorn...
