About the Author: Carl Barks

Carl Barks (March 27, 1901 – August 25, 2000) was an American Disney Studio illustrator and comic book creator, who invented Duckburg and many of its inhabitants, such as Scrooge McDuck (1947), Gladstone Gander (1948), the Beagle Boys (1951), The Junior Woodchucks (1951), Gyro Gearloose (1952), Cornelius Coot (1952), Flintheart Glomgold (1956), John D. Rockerduck (1961) and Magica De Spell (1961). The quality of his scripts and drawings earned him the nicknames "The Duck Man" and "The Good Duck Artist".

People who work for Disney generally do so in relative anonymity; the stories only carry Walt Disney's name and (sometimes) a short identification number. Prior to 1960, the creator of these stories remained a mystery to his readers. However, many readers recognized Barks' work and drawing style, and began to call him the Good Duck Artist, a label which stuck even after his true identity was discovered by John and Bill Spicer in 1959. After Barks received a 1960 visit from Bill and John Spicer and Ron Leonard, he was no longer anonymous, as his name soon became known to his readers.

Writer-artist Will Eisner called him "the Hans Christian Andersen of comic books." In 1987, Barks was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.

Uncle Scrooge sends Donald and the nephews to the jungle; the nephews solve a Western ghost mystery; and there are 10,000 hungry baby turkeys to deliver.
Donald and his nephews visit an Old West ghost town that was suddenly abandoned when the sheriff vanished while in hot pursuit of a passel of outlaws. Now the remains of the town are haunted ― and it’s up to the plucky nephews to solve the mystery of “The Ghost Sheriff of Last Gasp” before it’s too late! Then, 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. Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of outrageous hijinks, preposterous situations, and all-around cartooning brilliance. Over 200 pages of stories, each meticulously restored and newly colored. Insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts. Full-color illustrations throughout.
