Walt Disney's Donald Duck: The Golden Helmet (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library) (Paperback)
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
In this kid-friendly repackaging of Carl Barks’s seminal comics, the Duck family seeks Viking treasure.
Donald Duck discovers an ancient map and triggers a race to recover a fabulous Viking artifact that will give its owner full legal title to all of North America! “The Golden Helmet” takes Donald and his nephews on one of their greatest quests ever—a rip-roaring adventure full of twists, turns, and calamitous reversals of fortune as they bound across treacherous seas, struggle across treacherous terrain—and get waylaid by treacherous opponents. Plus: Three more bonus tales guest-starring Daisy Duck, Gyro Gearloose, Gladstone Gander, and of course, Huey, Dewey, and Louie! All stories written and drawn by Carl Barks.
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.
