“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

Description


Fantagraphics' recent line remixes Carl Barks's Donald Duck comics into affordable, kid-friendly books.


When a passel of extra-sneaky, extra-ornery high-tech cattle rustlers strikes, Donald Duck bravely dons a badge to become the “Sheriff of Bullet Valley.” Fortified by the know-how he’s gained watching Hollywood Westerns, our ever-intrepid Duck sets out to solve the perplexing mystery of how Blacksnake McSquirt’s brand keeps showing up on the cattle of the honest ranchers. Sheriff of Bullet Valley is the second entry in our new line of affordable kid-friendly Donald Duck books: just-right, half-height books packed with fun, laughs, and adventure. Each story is complete with all the original artwork (no panels have been dropped or altered). Bonus: Donald’s always-exasperating cousin Gladstone Gander returns in, um, “Gladstone Returns.” All stories written and drawn by Disney legend 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.
