“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


In this collection of internationally acclaimed Donald Duck comics, Donald and the nephews are stranded in the Arctic and face peril in the jungle!


In this collection of classic comic book stories, Huey, Dewey, and Louie earn a trip to the North Pole in a submarine — and Donald stows away! Fortunately, when they find themselves stranded, Gyro Gearloose invents a flying sled! Then, when Donald announces that he's taking the nephews to South America, he pledges to protect them from all the dangers in "the wildest part of the jungle" — including a sheer mountain cliff, a raging river, and a swarm of crocodiles. But who is saving whom? This book has 170 pages of story and art, each meticulously restored and newly colored, as well as insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.

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.

Praise For…


A priceless part of our literary heritage.
— George Lucas

Enormously well-crafted and equally enormously entertaining, timeless comedy adventures … the perfect gift for just about any reader of comics, regardless of age, background, or experience.
— School Library Journal

Barks’s stories are fables rather than allegories; they aren’t set in our world, nor do they represent it. Instead, they resolutely carve out their own unique sea-space in the ocean of story.
— The Los Angeles Review of Books
